Get your production chains started in Farming Simulator 22! And don't stop with selling the wheat after harvesting. Instead, deliver it to the grain mill, so it gets processed into fine flour and bring it to the local bakery. Then, you decide what they'll do with it!
So, what's new exactly? There are a lot of new building types in Farming Simulator 22. While some are already placed on the new maps and ready to take your goods for further processing, you can also build them yourself - making them your business to expand your farming operation. Since the feature is still a work-in-progress, we won't show you everything today.
One of the businesses being part of a production chain is the bakery. If you want to generate income from delicious cakes or fluffy bread, you need to supply them with flour, sugar and butter as well as other ingredients. To get those, you have to visit other links of the chain like the grain mill, dairy, or the sugar mill.
How you get one resource from one point to another, is your choice: either haul it yourself if your farming business is able to handle loads of goods or let the businesses do the heavy lifting - for a fee, of course. The grain mill or sugar mill, for example, let you decide if you transport the processed goods to the next link in the chain yourself or if the mills deliver them.
Also, in case of the bakery, you can also decide if they sell the produced goods directly or if you distribute them to the local supermarket, restaurant or farmer's market to generate even more income. One way or another, if you're selling baskets full of freshly baked bread instead of just the harvested wheat, you'll make more money.
Especially, since you not only have various options on what to produce, you can start multiple productions at once. Just make sure, you provide the necessary resources to keep the production going.
