Welcome to FarmeramaAID
We say “free” because that’s how it is advertised and that is how our main character Mee normally plays it, but those of you who wish to can hand over some of your own hard earned earthly cash to Bigpoint to buy certain benefits within the game. That is your choice. We will make further reference to this where appropriate within the pages of this site.
Hopefully on these pages you will find some useful information that will help you to enjoy the game to its fullest.
We, personally, get many hours of enjoyment from the game and even someone with a limited amount of time to devote to it can achieve good progress and have lots of fun along the way. There are very few elements of the game which are not available to those who wish to play for free, and that is one of the reasons we like the game so much.
Throughout this site in addition to the, hopefully, useful information we will also often give the reader our own opinions on various aspects of the game. It should be quite clear when this is so, but if you are in any doubt as to whether something is fact or opinion then please go to the Contact page and we will clarify the situation a.s.a.p. either on the site, by return email, or both.
We will try to bring a degree of humour to proceedings too, starting by spelling humour the
British correct way. You can spot all the other funnies for yourself.
You can get regular, emailed updates on all that is new on this site by completing the (totally free) subscription at the top of the column on the right.

Why support this site, and why Fife Headway?
Out there in the real world, Mee had spent nearly 25 in Software Development in the UK but decided that he needed a change.
He left the software industry at the Millenium and started a small business of his own in a different field but, alas, things didn’t work out. After a few years of struggling to make ends meet he decided that a complete change of lifestyle was needed and he moved up to Scotland to start a “new life”.
Two days later he was hit by a car while crossing the road on a pedestrian crossing.
His reflexes saved him from any broken bones but he was thrown over the vehicle, taking a hard knock to the head in the process and, as was discovered later, sustaining a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI).
The full extent of his injuries went undiagnosed for many months and he has been left with bouts of confusion, memory problems, task initiation, motivational issues, and various other Executive Function difficulties.
Once the problem had been identified he was put in touch with Fife Headway who were able to provide him with so much support, advice and comfort through those early months, and the time spent with him by their volunteers made a big difference to Mee’s understanding of what he was going through and what his expectations could be.
He finally managed to secure a position as a Finance Assistant with an importer of childrens’ sweets, a position he held for two years.
During that time Mee began to suffer from a degenerative problem in his neck which leaves him with a degree of mobility difficultiess and means he his prone to severe headaches.
Things did appear to be looking up as through the use of the Earthly interweb he found, fell in love with, and finally married a wonderful Chinese lady (Mrs. Mee), but three days after she finally moved to the UK the company that Mee was working for went into liquidation.
That was in September 2010 and Mee has been unable to work since.
There are certain costs involved with the development and maintenance of a site such as this, and it is also necessary to ensure that as much as possible of the game is available to Mee (at least on one farm) in order to be able to present you all with up-to-date and meaningful information. All these costs have to be met from an exceedingly tight budget.
By supporting this site you are contributing to Mee being able to continue with this project whilst also supporting Fife Headway.
Thank you for your kind attention.
As stated above, Mee’s career was based mainly in the world of software development and through that he has become accustomed to ensuring confidentiality and proper use of data at all levels. By using PayPal as an intermediary between yourself and this site both parties receive the added protection of PayPal’s own security procedures. You can be sure that the only information about yourself that is being passed to us, other than your email address, is any message that you may wish to add to your donation. Everything else about you is kept private.
We wouldn’t have it any other way!
For their part, PayPal do take a small transaction charge to cover their services, but we are quite happy with that. We all have to live.
At the present time donations can only be received in Pounds Sterling (£) – GBP, but we will try to set up facilities in US Dollars and Euros in the near future.
Thank you again.
