Get yourself the grey stuff from the ground. Here’s how to get Clay in Stardew Valley!
Stardew Valley is a country life RPG where you’ll be farming, harvesting, fishing, and generally doing a lot of nature stuff. Within the game, there are many resources that you can use for crafting various items. Some are just aesthetic, others actually can help you to grow your farm in certain ways with tools. Clay is one such resource that you’ll often need, so here’s how to get clay in Stardew Valley.
It’s not easily found within the world, however.
How to Get Clay in Stardew Valley
In order to easily get clay, you’ll need to till the ground with a hoe. You can till anywhere from your farm to the beach (and it’s advised that you do this at the beach a lot because it’s found most while tilling there).
The mines are also a good place for finding it. Worm patches, which look like little plots of land where three worms are vibing on top, sticking out of the ground, are particularly good for getting clay. The next time you stumble across one of these, till there with your hoe and you might get some clay in return.
Additionally, if you find a geode and take it over to the blacksmith in the southeast part of Pelican, there’s a chance clay can be what you’re left with once his job is done. This one’s random and rarer than just tilling around, though.
Finally, you can get Clay as a gift during the Feast of the Winter Star from Jas or Vincent if you’re paired up with them. We wouldn’t recommend giving it to anyone, though, as everyone dislikes or hates it!
What Clay Is Used For in Stardew Valley
Clay is a valuable resource that you can use to make a variety of different items. The Silo, Bone Mill, and Quality Retaining Soil all require it in order to craft, for example.
The most Clay that you’ll ever need for a specific crafting recipe, though, is 10, and that’s for the Silo. As such, this shouldn’t ever be something you need a huge amount of, unless you’re mass-producing either Quality or Deluxe Retaining Soil to save you having to water your crops every day.
There you have it, though! That’s how to get clay in Stardew Valley. If you need any more help with the game, might I suggest you check our our guide wiki? If you’d rather ask us something specifically, you certainly can do so in the comments down below.
