Stardew Valley might trick some people that it is a life simulator, but, at heart, it is still a farming sim. There are many ways you can make money in this game, but nothing gets even close to crops when it comes to profit.
As you progress through the game and repair more of your grandfather’s farm, you might think that you should fix that broken down Greenhouse in the northwestern part of the plot of land.

What is the Greenhouse in Stardew Valley
Players can first see the Greenhouse on their first day in Stardew Valley, as its ruin is standing right to the left of the Farmhouse.
This building, once you manage to fix it, will allow you to grow crops inside.
The huge difference between planting crops outside or inside the Greenhouse is that the season doesn’t matter inside this building.
It can be the middle of Winter when nothing grows, and you can have a lot of crops growing strong inside the Greenhouse, producing you a lot of money.
Usually, most players plant the most profitable crop that is available at the moment inside the Greenhouse and there is no room for diversity. The Greenhouse is mostly used as a money-printing machine.
Since there are crops that you actually only have to plant once, and then they will give you harvests forever, the Greenhouse becomes the only resource you need to grow your plants.
You can also place Fruit Trees inside the Greenhouse on the edges where you can’t plant crops, allowing you to also get fruits every day with no real disadvantages.
How to Get the Greenhouse in Stardew Valley
There are two ways to get the Greenhouse in Stardew Valley:
- Complete the Pantry Bundles in the Community Center.
- Purchase the Greenhouse using the Joja Community Development Form.
Once you unlock the Community Center in Stardew Valley, you will have a choice to make.
You either work with the spirits to fix the Community Center and Pelican Town by completing Bundles of random items, or you join JojaMart and pay to fix all the problems in the town without any other complications.
If you join JojaMart, you cannot go back to the Community Center route, so be careful if that is what you want to do.
Community Center Route
If you are doing the Community Center route in Stardew Valley, then you will need to complete the Pantry bundles to get the Greenhouse.
Once you finish your first Bundle at the Community Center, you will unlock the Pantry Bundles. These Bundles will require you to grow most of the important crops in the game, and it is impossible to complete until you reach Fall.
To fully complete the Pantry Bundles, you will also need to have a lot of animals and learn how to properly process most types of crops into Artisan Goods.

You don’t need to search for all the possible ingredients to complete some bizarre Bundle, you just need to have a lot of gold.
