The Storage Cellar is a special event building which grants expandable storage on a FarmVille Farm. Added on August 19, 2010, the Storage Cellar lets players build storage on their farm with the help of their friends, while taking up less space than all other storage buildings available.
How do I get a Storage Cellar?
The Storage Cellar is granted to players level 16 or above. A cellar is given free to every player through a special pop-up.
Can I buy, sell, or delete a cellar?
You can buy a cellar in the Marketplace for 10,000 coins if you do not have a cellar already placed on your farm. Farmers can only have one Cellar, and once it is placed, it cannot be sold or deleted.
Does the cellar change appearances?
Yes, as it expands, the cellar goes from looking like a hole in the ground to having a building around it; the space it takes up does not change.
How much room does the cellar take?
The Cellar is smaller than a single farming plot.
How much can the Storage Cellar hold?
The cellar can hold up to 500 items when fully expanded. Note: this is also the maximum items that can be stored across all buildings. However, the cellar takes up less space than multiple buildings, and is relatively easy to expand, making it ideal as a storage building. Other buildings can be removed in lieu of the cellar, once it has been expanded.
Can the cellar only store small items?
No. The cellar can store any item that can be stored in FarmVille.
How do I transfer items from my other storage buildings to my cellar?
All storage in FarmVille is shared, not saved per individual building. Your items will automatically be stored in the cellar if you choose to store or sell your previous buildings, so long as you have enough room in the cellar to do so. If you do not have enough storage, the game will warn you that items will be lost.
What do I need to expand my Cellar?
The cellar acts like several other special events in FarmVille. Players must find shovels (see below) and use them from their inventory. These shovels are then applied to the cellar, and each pair of shovels expands the cellar’s storage by two. Shovels also act as tradable points for extra rewards (and once again, each pair of shovels counts for two points). A total of 250 pairs of shovels is needed to fully upgrade the cellar.
Where do I get shovels?
Every Farmer can gift shovels from the free gifts page to their friends that play FarmVille. Shovels can also be found through the friend feed on events caused by farmers reaching certain milestones on expanding their cellar, both in actual number and in bypassing friends on the “ranking.” Shovels may also be requested from friends, and that request allows players to choose one of several reward options, including fuel, coins, mystery gifts, and two shovels.
What extra rewards are there?
Like other special events, the Storage Cellar lets players gather “points” which can be exchanged then for extra rewards. Using these points will not reduce the maximum number of storage of the cellar; it will only use a spendable amount of points to redeem for the reward.
The rewards are:
Mole (20 points): An animal decoration, featuring a dirt hole which can be activated to cause the mole to pop up and look around. The mole is not harvestable.
Crystal Rock (40 points): A decoration item resembling white crystals sprouting from the ground, much like quartz.
Miner Sheep (60 points): A special edition harvestable Sheep, which has a gray wool and wears a red miner’s helmet. Rewards 1500 coins every 2 days.
Cave Gnome (120 points): A decoration item; a gnome caveman trapped in a block of ice.
Antique Tractor (200 points): A special edition vehicle. Unlike the Seeder Truck reward from Co-op Farming, the Antique Tractor does not start at a higher level; it begins at level 1 (2×2 area) and must be upgraded further. It is special in appearance and rarity only.
