With such lofty plans, you can’t forget about the basics. And nothing in farming is more basic than hay. So let’s see how to get hay in Coral Island.

How to get Hay in Coral Island

There are a few ways to get hay in Coral Island. It isn’t too difficult to get, and fortunately, there are several methods to get all the hay you need. It can be found randomly in destructible boxes or it can sometimes be looted when cutting grass and weeds with your Scythe. However, the best method to obtain hay is by using a Dehydrator.

You will first need to build the Dehydrator on your farm and gather up some Fiber. Fortunately, Fiber is also obtained through cutting grass with your Scythe, so that’s an effective activity either way. Place 2 Fibers into the Dehydrator and after two hours, you will get 1 Hay.

If you’re flush with cash, you can straight-up buy hay from the stores. You can get it from the Ranch if your Town Rank is F or better for 30 Coins. Otherwise, you can get it from the Animal Festival event for 24 Coins.
