This achievement is for helping the three merchants in town, the blacksmith, the baker and the herbalists.

Helping the blacksmith is the easiest of all, just NEVER leave the door to the town open in order to prevent wolves from getting in.

To help the baker you have to get rid of the beehive above the picnic table, next to the floating island. In order to do that, go there and read the letter. I believe this will trigger the guard collecting fruits from a tree next to the pumpkin field close to town to complete his job. Go there, pick up the fruit picker and then go back to the picnic table and use the fruit picker on the beehive to get rid of the bees.

ThThGR points out that it is still possible to get rid of the beehive after it's knocked down using the fruit picker. This should be a better solution since you can also do the "Purple Badger Don't Care" achievement this way if you need it.

The important thing to remember is that giving the ingredients to the baker to complete the pie is the likely cause of the main quest advancing, what makes his date with his fiancee happen and you miss the chance to get rid of the beehive and help him. So, whatever you do, get rid of the beehive before advancing anything from the main quest related to the baker!

The last thing you need to do, is to complete the potion the old couple is making. To do that you first need to complete the well with Achaka so you learn how to shoot a bow properly. After that climb the hill close to the first sign pointing to the floating island and cross the chasm using an arrow with the rope. Continue on the only path and a fight with some goblins will start. Defeat them and save the merchant to get a blue feather. Deliver that to the potion shop and then progress with the story until after you win the duel of speed against Whisper. Now, you'll be near him crying close to the frogs. You need to colect his photo from the board close to the king statue if you haven't already and ask him to sign it. After that, ask him to get a frog for you. Deliver this frog to the potion shop to complete your last task

Be aware that you'll only get the achievement after finishing the game if you did everything right.
