The Silo is one of the Buildings that we can build on our Stardew Valley Farm through Carpentry and its basic function is to allow us to store large amounts of Hay.

This is one of the objects that we are going to need the most in the game, especially if we want to dedicate ourselves to Livestock (which is integrated into the Agriculture skill ) or in other words, to take care of Farm Animals.


To build the Silo you will first have to collect the following materials:

  • 100 coins : Something that will not be very difficult to get even on the first day of the game.
  • 100 Stone : It is achieved by chopping the small stones that you find. You will have piles in your Farm to start and bad you have piles in the Mine.
  • 10 Clay : This can appear when digging in the ground, so almost unintentionally you will get it. She can also appear in the Geodes (you have to take them to Clint), which usually appear mostly in the Mine again.
  • 5 Copper Ingots : Copper is the easiest ore to obtain in Stardew Valley, there are loads of it in the first 39 levels of the Mine. To get the ingot you will have to use a Smelter and Coal Furnace, you can also buy ingots from Clint.

As you can see, the materials are very common and easy to obtain. For this reason, the Silo is usually recommended as the first building you should build, and it will also come in handy.

Once you have gathered all the materials, you just have to go to the Shop of Robin, the Stardew Valley Carpenter. She will be the one to build the building, but it will take her a few days to get it ready, meanwhile you will see her working on your Farm. It is a building that occupies 3×3 squares.


The Silo will allow us to store a total of 240 Hay units , but this is only one of the qualities it offers.

By having the Silo built on the Farm there will be a 50% chance that it will be filled with a Hay unit every time we cut with the Scythe (it has to be the Scythe) an area of ​​Grass. The one that usually appears from the Farm and the same one that the Animals that are under your care can eat.

This is without a doubt the cheapest and most viable way to gather a lot of hay. Also keep in mind that you can also store all the Hay you have in the Silo and that you can access it from the Stables and Corals, you will see that there is a kind of container from which you can obtain Hay as long as you have it available in the Silo.

Oh, and I almost forgot, if you want to know how much Hay you have stored in your Silo (which you can have more than one if you want) you just have to interact with it and a message will appear telling you.


As I have already told you before, Hay is used above all in Livestock since with it we can feed the Farm Animals , although they prefer to eat directly from natural Grass (it can be planted by buying Grass Patch from Pierre), which by default it should be the feeding method you choose.

But that does not mean that it is very important to store hay just in case, because if for some reason your animals cannot go out on a certain day (as happens throughout the winter or when it rains) you will have to feed them with hay. Otherwise, their level of friendship with you will drop, they will stop producing products and when they do, they will be of poorer quality.

Without the Silo you will have no choice but to go buy hay from Marnie and this will obviously be much more expensive, not to mention the comfort of not having to go there. So you already know.
