This article is about an older version of DF.

A farmer's workshop is used to process various plants and make cheese. Pig tails and Rope reeds are processed into thread, quarry bushes into leaves, and sweet pods into dwarven syrup.

It is also used to milk purring maggots for dwarven milk. Dwarven milk as well as other (bought) milk can then be turned into cheese at a 1:1 ratio. For this the milk has to be allowed for cooking in the kitchen menu, so you might want to make sure it's not used for cooking instead.


Process Plants[edit]

Requires: Pig tail or Rope reed, and Plant processing.

Creates Pig tail thread or Rope reed thread, respectively. See the textile industry for more info on these products.

Process Plants (to Bag)[edit]

Process Plants (to Barrel)[edit]

Requires: Sweet pod, a barrel, and Plant processing.

Process Plants (to Vial)[edit]

Milk Creature[edit]

Requires: Purring maggot, a bucket, and Milking.

Creates Dwarven milk.

Make Cheese[edit]

Requires: A barrel containing milk available for cooking, and Cheese making

Creates the associated cheese. i.e. Cow milk goes to cow cheese.

If a barrel contains multiple stacks of milk (e.g. from having milked purring maggots), the entire barrel will be processed in one task, creating multiple stacks of cheese.
