The Hog is a type of Farm Animal. It is a direct upgrade of the Pig.

General Description[]

Hogs till Soil and break crust, efficiently saving the player Pickaxes and time spent tilling soil. They can also create compact soil (something the player cannot do without Golden Hoe), which can have Crops grown in it twice before it needs to be tilled again. With Snot Nose, they can create moist soil which causes crops to grow much faster. Unlike pigs, hogs will charge at enemies, dealing 100 damage per hit and considerably assisting with defending the Farm.

Some items cause tilled soil to drop items, such as Seeds or Fertilizer. If hogs uncover these items, they will hold onto them, and be marked by an ExclamationMarkIconAnimation.gif exclamation point. Running into the hog will pass the items onto the player.


Hogs can be bought, given, or rescued from Camps.


The second area of each Biome may have Camps containing hogs. One is the "Farm Animals" camp, where clearing the Enemies from the camp rewards the player with a choice between two farm animals. The other type is the "Corral" camp: clearing the enemies will grant the player all the animals inside the corral, which may include a hog.


The Garden Shop in Town has a small chance to sell hogs in fall and winter, for 1600 Cashew.png or 2500 Cashew.png depending on the Season.
At Seasonal Festivals, the Rose Market also has a chance to sell hogs, in exchange for 4 RoseIcon.png. They are also a rare prize at the Seasonal Festival Casino.


Depending on the player's Yield Score at the Seasonal Festival, they may be awarded items. One of those items has a chance to be a Farm Animal, with a higher chance of gaining an upgraded Farm Animal in fall and winter.


If the player has the Nasal Spray upgrade, hogs can dig up Truffles while tilling soil. These must be collected by walking over them or by using the harvest circle, and sell for 200 Cashew.png each.
