To get the Dehydrator for your farm, you will first need to purchase its crafting recipe from Pierre’s General Store in Pelican Town. The recipe for the Dehydrator costs 10,000 gold coins, which is quite expensive for an early-game purchase.

Once you’ve got the recipe, all you need to do is collect the required ingredients and craft the Dehydrator from the Crafting tab in the menu. The following materials are needed to craft a Dehydrator:

  • 30 Wood
  • 2 Clay
  • 1 Fire Quartz

Wood is easily obtained by chopping down trees around the Valley, while Clay and Fire Quartz are somewhat harder to find. Clay can be collected by tilling the ground with a hoe or by mining Clay Nodes at the Dig Site on Ginger Island. Occasionally, you can also get Clay by breaking Geodes.

On the other hand, Fire Quartz can be foraged in the Mines (from Levels 80+) and in the Skull Cavern. There’s also a chance players can get this crystal from Magma Geodes or Omni Geodes.

If players have chosen the Mushroom Cave for their farm, they can get a Dehydrator for free.
