Stardew Valley: How to Make a Scarecrow

How to Make a Scarecrow in Stardew Valley

In Stardew Valley, you’ll be planting tons of different crops and growing them. They’re a big source of income, so naturally, you’re going to want to take care of your precious babies. Crows are your enemy in this regard. Luckily, you can just build some Scarecrows to get those crows right off your lawn. Here’s how to make a Scarecrow to keep your fields safe.

Scarecrows will become available in your crafting menu right from the start of the game (Farming Level 1). Head over to the crafting menu (the hammer tab once you hit ESC), and build a scarecrow for 50 wood, 20 fiber, and one coal. Once you have, it will be in your inventory. You can then place it near your crops (it’s best if it’s surrounded by them, to cover more ground) and it will every day protect your precious crops from crows.


It’s important to keep a scarecrow near your crops, so don’t forget to build them once you’re hoeing more space for your seeds.
