Not only can youanimals in Valheim, but you can also plant crops. This has benefits in helping to create delicious meals while also providing food for your boars or lox.
Early in the game you may find yourself a handful of seeds with no idea how to plant them, but don't worry, as this guide will walk you through the process step by step.
Valheim - The Cultivator
To plant your seeds you need a special tool called a cultivator and this needs a forge to build. This means that you can't start planting until you've explored the Black Forest and built a.
Once you've got your smelter and built a forge, you can coal up the smelter and combine tin and copper ores to create a bronze bar. This unlocks the recipe for the cultivator which is made with 5 bronze bars and 5 core wood that you can get from pine trees in the Black Forest.
You can now use your fancy new tool to till the soil and make it suitable for farming. You don't have to enclose this area but it does make it look nice and some plants will attract mobs otherwise.
Valheim - Seeds
In the Meadows you're not going to have access to the seeds you'll really want, but there's a good chance that you found some carrots and turnip seeds while you were in the Black Forest. These seeds can now be planted in your freshly tilled soil.
There should be a 1x1 area between each seed to allow for maximum growth and once planted they are a maintenance free source of food. Eventually you'll gather these up and should get some additional seeds to allow you to expand your farm. You can also grab extra seeds while you're out exploring the world.
More exotic seeds like barley and thistle can be found in the swamp biome, while flax can only be grown at all in the Plains.
After you've clear cut the local area it's probably time to reforest a little bit and tree seeds are planted the same way as everything else. The only exception here is that trees are big and need at least a 2x2 spacing to grow properly.
