Stardew Valley: Optimal Layout for Grandpa’s Shed/Greenhouse

Stardew Valley is a popular farming simulation game where players can build and manage their own farm. One of the features of the game is the ability to upgrade your farm with a shed or a greenhouse. In this article, we’ll be discussing the optimal layout for Grandpa’s Shed/Greenhouse in Stardew Valley.

Main Floor

On the main floor, you can use automated casks for aging your wine, beer, or ale. You will need to build a path to access the second floor, but apart from that, you can fill the floor entirely with casks.Here is A highly optimized cask layout founded on Reddit, where players have shared their ideas.

Second Floor

On the second floor, the 15×10 plot is perfect for growing crops. Iridium sprinklers are the best option for thorough coverage, and you will need six of them, each taking up one spot. To maximize efficiency, you can use four pressure nozzles to enhance the iridium sprinklers and a combination of other sprinklers to cover a 10×1 stretch. This will guarantee that all your crops receive optimal growth and watering.

For those who prefer not to use fertilizer or speed grow, you can use deluxe retaining soil and zero sprinklers. Ancient fruit and starfruit can be grown in the greenhouse, and you can have two sheds with kegs in them – one for ancient fruit and one for starfruit.

Heart Event Profits

It is worth noting that heart event profit bonuses can affect the best crops, such as Sophia’s and Susan’s grape and ale ones. However, for optimizing your farm, ancient fruit and other high-value crops are still the top options. For instance, with Susan’s boost, it takes 5.5 beers to equal one wine, but beer earns more profit. However, growing enough wheat to sustain that requires three or four times the space, which can be too much in terms of sprinkler/energy cost. Similarly, grapes would need three times as many kegs to process, making it less efficient.

Ancient fruit has the added advantage of growing across multiple seasons, making it a better choice compared to single-season crops like hops and grapes. Mead is another all-seasons crop that has a fast processing time, but it requires beehouses. By the time you have enough resources to build beehouses, you may have already accumulated enough money for starfruit seeds.
