As days shorten and weather grows colder it becomes more difficult to entertain our kids indoors. The temptation to resort to television and video games looms large. However, there are many games today that are not only fun, but educational!  The Farming Simulator game is one of those games. It provides an outdoor experience through a colorful and interactive world of virtual farming.

Farming Simulator

Full of vivid graphics and real life farming scenarios, this game will educate your children on agriculture as well as entertain them on those dreary winter days.

While playing, kids will experience the demanding duties of a farmer, including animal breeding (cows, chicken, and sheep), growing and harvesting crops, purchasing animals and selling their byproducts, and operating more than a hundred farming vehicles and machines.

Kids are responsible for managing and growing their own farm!

They will love driving tractors, tillers, and all sorts of large and powerful vehicles that will help them create the farm of their dreams!

The Farming Simulator’s fun features include:

  • Over 20 licensed brands including Case IH, Deutz-Fahr, Lamborghini, Same, Horsch, Amazone and many more
  • Career mode with economic system, animal husbandry & purchasable fields
  • 3 animal types: chickens, sheep & cows
  • All new environment modeled after American agriculture
  • Moveable buildings and objects in a huge open world that you control!
  • Hours of fun and strategy as you learn to become a working farmer!

This game will not only provide hours of indoor entertainment, but will increase knowledge regarding agriculture, farming, and machinery.  It will engage the player’s mind in a fun way!

The game is available for PS3 and XBox 360.  Learn more on the Maximum Games website.

My husband actually started a small patch of hobby farming a few years back. We dont’ have any equipment yet but he loves to dream. I’d love to get this for him to play with our little grandkids when they come over…or might have to gift our little grandson who is all about farming and the big equipment it takes. Thank you so much!
