Neighbour with 2 farms! How is this possible.

Apparently, in the earliest days of the game, there was a way to purchase an additional farm, just as you can purchase additional krustyburgers and kwik-e-marts. So it's possible that they've just been playing that long. (It's also possible that they are a hacker who gained access to the old files and did it that way, but I won't immediately jump to such conclusions.)

    There is another way. It was reported in another thread (for a different unique item) that he acquired the item on one device then logged on to another device and he got the item twice.

    May also have happened

    What little can be seen of the rest of this town makes me think it's not a hack. I mean, if you're gonna hack, why farm brown houses?

    Even other Springfield had 2 Cletus' farms when it first came out. It your neighbor has been playing for over a year or more, they could have 2. If they had 3 or 4 then I'd call it a hack.

    It could be a glitch. I just recently got a 2nd King Toots that won't go away. I store it or sell it but every time I log in, it's placed in the middle of a road. It's driving me mad.

    Yeah as said above. Probably just been playing since the start as you could purchase multiple farms at one point.

    Long time lurker, rare poster. I don't have pics, but it did happen to me. I'm not sure how it happened, but during the halloween event I was promted to harvest moonshine. So i started the process, exited the game, came back later and I noticed that the farm was empty. So, i tapped it and it showed the progress bar and it was several hours into growing, but it did not show up in the farm. Then I tapped it again and the grow menu popped up as if nothing was growing. I tapped the "move object" button and tapped the farm. A farm highlighted as if i was going to move it so I did. Knowing this was some sort of glitch, i didn't have much hope in keeping it, but even after the new update i still have and it is fully functional. I'm still going to give it sometime before I start harvesting corn from it exclusivley just to make sure it is here to stay. I don't have a jailbroken device or ever hacked the game.

    The Christmas lights are skins, not actual buildings.

    Yeah but if you've been playing long enough to legitimately have 2 farms why in the hell would you need to be farming brown houses still?

    That's under the assumption that the player has been playing consistently since the beginning. He could have played for 3 months and then went on a year long break. Or maybe the screenshot is from an inactive player who played 6 months and then quit the game entirely.

    Or maybe, just MAYBE, the player likes his house farm? I'm not strapped for cash; but, I like my house farm and plan to expand it. The player may also simply be too lazy to take his house farm down or feels its a waste to buy houses and then keep houses in his inventory.

    A lot of possible solutions but we are still no closer to the truth. OP can you post any more pics that might yield further clues to this fascinating mystery?
