How to Make Money Quickly

There are many ways to make money in Farming Simulator 22, as you would expect, but there are a few ways that will make you profit fast, particularly as you are getting started. They vary in effort level required, but each is equally honest depending on the type of player you are.


Bees are the easiest to get up and running in the game and come with the benefit of requiring no care or maintenance after setting them up on your farm. To get bees, like the other animals, you’ll first need to house them. To do this, you’ll want to head to the ‘Construction’ tab of the shop menu.

The most expensive beehive build in the game is only $19,000. Along with the necessary palette room for the honey that they’ll produce, you can have a maximized output for just $19,200. When placing your bees, you’ll want to make sure you position them near as many of your crops as possible, as the bees will help increase your yields gratitude to the pollination that they deliver! You’ll see the expensive hive, the palette space, and its positioning near some crops in the image below.

With that setup, the last thing you’ll need is a forklift to transport the pallets of honey to a sale point. You’ll find the available forklifts in their own designated tab in the ‘Vehicles’ section of the shop menu. One is available for $37,000 and the other for $55,000 – both still within your starting budget. Either will do the job, so it’s up to you how much you want to spend. You’ll see the two options in the menu below.

With that, you’re ready to sell honey and make a strong profit right out of the gate!


Contracts are jobs posted by AI characters that you can accept at your preference. You can find these in the ‘Contracts’ tab of the pause menu. There will be a list of available contracts, each with details as to the site of the job, the money on offer, and the requirements to earn the money.

You’ll note in the image above that each contract will helpfully display all of the required equipment necessary to complete the job before you accept it. If you already own the equipment, no problem! But particularly early on, you’ll want to opt for the leasing equipment option, even with the reduced reward as a result. The option to borrow the items is helpfully in the bottom left of the UI, so hit that and the machinery will be delivered to the nearest store. Being expedient with the contract will negate any penalties you would get from leasing for a long time, and completing multiple contracts over time will allow you to purchase the equipment outright.

The better-paying contracts often require more (and often more complex) work, which is to be expected, so take that into account as you pick and choose which contracts the best suit you and your current position in the game. With a contract accepted, you can track your progress in its completion using the same screen, with a progress bar visible in the image below.


This, to some, will be deemed cheating and negating the true experience intended for players. But for those impatient people or those that can’t commit to numerous long play sessions to get your farm up and running, the Government Subsidy mod will be your best friend. Available from the offset, head to the Gameplay section of the Downloadable Content tab on the main menu. Install it and it will become an additional option to enable every time you load up a save, new or existing. This mod delivers two financial options: A Municipal Subsidy for $100,000 a year, and a Government Subsidy for $100,000,000 a year.

There are NO consequences for taking this proposal, so choose whichever is most suitable for you. If the Government Subsidy seems excessive, take the Municipal for a less bump to your account. Once loaded into a save, enter the ‘Construction’ tab of the shop menu, head to ‘Production’ and then ‘Generators’ and you’ll find the Subsidy signs there. Place one down on your land and you’ll receive an hourly amount straight to your account.
