Farming Simulator 22 is so in-depth that a lot of its features can easily pass you by. There are so many unique and interesting ways to make money, one of which being the building of mills. Mills are factories which transform your raw crops into items which can be sold to customers.
How do you get grain and oil mills on your farm though? And what is the best way to get the most out of them? We've got everything you need to know right here!
The first thing you need to do to get your mills up and running is to purchase them. Both the grain and oil mills can be found in the game's store. Go to construction, then production and both are there in the list. The grain mill costs $96,000, while the oil mill will set you back $80,000.
There is another way to buy them though, as they're fairly common to find on your map. If you find one on the map, travel to it and go to the spanner icon outside of the building. Beware though, buying the mill this way is irreversible, you cannot sell it later on.
You're probably wondering what you need to keep your mills running and what they produce as a result. The grain mill uses wheat, barley, oats and sorghum and outputs flour from these. The oil mill takes canola, sunflower and olives and creates oil for all three of these.
Going into the production chains menu will show you the ratios of what is produced from each crop. This is also where you can set what is to be done with the produce once it has been created. Store sets the product to go into storage, selling sells the product to the highest bidder automatically, but you take a 40% delivery charge.
Finally distributing, sends the produce to the next link in the supply chain. For example, if you have a bakery, flour will be sent there to make new items like bread or cake.
Canola, sunflower and olive oil cannot be used to make anything else after that. You're best off selling these, but remember, do so manually rather than the game autoselling them for maximum profit.
If you're better at visually learning and watching someone else carry out the task you're aiming to complete, don't worry. As ever, Farmer Cop has a handy video tutorial available for this mechanic in FS22:
