To obtain wheat in Manor Lords, you must build a Farmhouse and at least one Field. The Farmhouse costs 3 Wood to construct, and the Field is free. Once placed and constructed, players will need enough population assigned to the Farmhouse to tend the fields. This is the trick when trying to get Wheat early in the game, as the settlement is often only a dozen or so people.

When the field is ready and there are enough settlers to care for it, click on the field to open the crop menu. From here, click “Crop Type” and set it to wheat.

To create grind wheat as a resource in Manor Lords, players will need to build multiple fields and set them all to grow wheat.

Because of this, choosing to flood the settlement with wheat can be a risky gamble.

How To Use Wheat in Manor Lords

Wheat is used to make bread in Manor Lords. It is a critical resource to obtain, as early gameplay revolves around reliance on the Foragert Hut and Hunting Camp. While both of these bring in fresh goods, bread is a staple that propels settlement growth and ensures supply security.
