    There's a fast way to get this achievement.

    If you have 5-10k diamonds (less works as well, just won't be as fast), spend them all, then recycle your whole farm*. When you recycle your whole farm you get 100% of your money, diamonds and medals back. This then counts towards the achievement. If necessary, repeat these steps until the achievement pops. smile

    *Make sure to harvast everything first and turn your resources in, because you will have a storage limit of 20/20 again, so you might lose a lot of resources.

    Note: This works for the 500 medals achievement as well.

    x SpiinDropZz iYes, that also works. What I did for level 70-73 was spending all of my diamonds on Spice Bazaars, then recycle the whole farm. You keep the XP/levels and get your diamonds back. Might get a little boring though, plus you probably will have to continue playing for the plowing achievement (like me) if this is how you decide to level up.

    Kugarerecycle your whole farm? Do you mean the option to reset it unter the farm options?
    because i usef recycle on a single item and only got around 50% of the invested amount back.
    Sounds strange to have an option to get 100% back? oO - or is this patched or something?
    Sorry for all the questions. ;o

    x SpiinDropZz iSorry, this is my first solution to an achievement ever. What I indeed mean is the "Recycle Farm" when you hit Start and go to Settings. When you recycle a single item (by pressing X) you get 50% of the invested amount back.

    If you are looking to do this as passively as possible without much playing time commitment then making a large fishing pond with Clownfish is one of the best ways to go. Clownfish take 30 minutes to be fishable and have an 80% catch rate, meaning every 5 fishing spots will give you 4 fish on average, mind you there is RNG. Each caught fish will give you 1 fish resource and 10 fish resources can be turned in for 5 diamonds at the fish stand, or 100 fish resources can be turned in for 40 diamonds at the fish market.

    Alternatively you can do money trees which can be harvested every winter, approximately every hour, and give 2 diamonds per tree. This however is expensive and doesn't produce any income so it is harder to do early on.

    It is also worth noting that selling an object you have bought for diamonds counts towards progress on this achievement so you can place an object costing 100 diamonds, sell it for 50 back and get 50 diamonds progress towards the achievement, rinse repeat this and the total diamonds you need is much lower than 50,000.

    Another way to make fishing easier is to use farmhands. They cost 15 medals to purchase (and you get 1 hour), then 2 tickets per hour after (stacks up to 4 hours). Tickets can be earned by jobs in a house or by trading 1 gold nugget for 2 tickets.

    Placing a farmhand with fish ponds in their radius lets the computer fish every time its available, rather than you having to sit and wait for each 30m cycle. (Also GREAT for livestock feeding)

    Personally I come back about every hour and harvest crops and sell off fish (3 fish markets) to keep money coming in, then leave with a wired controller until i make it back again.

    Just watch your inventory to make sure you don't fill up before you sell! Build barns and fish markets to raise your capacity.

    Kelle1994You could also plant rosemary. You gain 25 diamonds (depending on level and how often you water it) every 36 hours.
    1 rosemary costs 1 medal

    Martel18You can farm diamonds on other peoples farms and it contributes towards your achievement progress.

    I found a farm with a ton of money trees and clownfish. Harvesting money trees every winter then hand in clownfish while waiting for winter again.

    Many ways to do this, but for me I planted a ton of apple trees because they produce often and year round, put a few farm hands on them constantly filling my fruit to capacity and selling my fruit for 60 diamonds, making 180 each trip to the store.
