One of the big features of Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ 2.0.0 Update is the cooking, but to cook, you need ingredients. So here is everything you need to know about how to grow and harvest wheat on your island.

As you might imagine, the first step is to make sure the 2.0 update is installed on your Switch. You don’t need to purchase the Happy Home Paradise DLC to grow wheat or many other items on your island, but you do need the free update installed.

From there you need to find our old friend Leif. He will show up randomly on your island, or you can go to Harv’s Island and invest bells into Leif’s Shop. Whichever route you take, purchase wheat seeds from Leif for the low, low price of 280 bells.

Once you have your seeds in hand, you need to prepare a space to plant them. Clear an area that can accommodate the number of seeds you want to plant. For each seed, dig a hole and plant a seed the same way you would flowers or trees.

From there, you just need to water your crops daily, and they should grow into a fresh batch of wheat you can use in recipes such as flour.
