Wheatfield and Well’s don’t cost a Building license.
When it becomes depleted, u can build a new one on top of it.
When upgrading a Well it does not add more water, it only doubles the production and the needs.
Farm:wheatfield ratio is 1:2, recommended 2:3, for 1:1 ratio make sure u dont run out in the middle of the night.
U can place 1 or more Farms at 1 weathfield (like 2 x mason at 1 mine).
Farm takes closest wheatfield first then it looks for others.

Have fun with it,
Cotax.

    Would I be right in thinking that in order to produce beer and bread I would need 6 farms and 3 wells plus the 2 mills, bakery and brewery? How many fields per farm?
    Thanks
