When is it best to craft the Silo in Stardew Valley

 The silo is one of the most efficient constructions in Stardew Valley, we can take good advantage of it to get food for our animals. But it is important to take into account the best times to do it, and in this section of our complete guide, we will give you all the details about the Silo.

What are silos for?

The main function of the silos is to collect hay (an element that is used to feed the animals of Stardew Valley). It is a construction that can be obtained through Robin's carpentry.

Basically, it is one of the most useful constructions in the game, if we opt for the Agriculture skill. But to make it we must have some materials, and know when it is preferable to build it.

When and how to manufacture the Silo?

To make this building, we only have to gather 100 coins, 100 stones, 10 clay, and five copper ingots. All these materials are easily obtained, so we should not worry and it is precisely for this reason that it is best to do this construction in Stardew Valley, before others.

Now, as soon as you meet the requirements, you just have to go to the carpentry and Robin will start making the Silo; therefore he takes a few days and he will see them working on your farm.

Without a doubt, the best option is to build it before the pens and stables, since we will save time, due to the amount of hay that we can accumulate for the winter season; so you will not spend work when you need it.

Other reasons to build the Silo before other buildings are because in winter it is difficult to get hay; but if we have already collected enough in the Silo, we will not need to buy it.

Finally, the price of the Silo is cheaper than that of the pens or stables and we can also get a lot of profit from it through the hay. This is why it is most recommended that it be the first construction of our farm.
