How to get wheat in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Wheat Starts can be purchased from Leif, who can be found either visiting your island, which only happens once a week, or settling on Harv’s Island. It sells Wheat Starts for 280 bells individually or 1400 bells for a pack of five. However, due to Leif’s stock rotation and waiting between visits, until he takes up permanent residence on Harv’s Island, it may take several attempts to buy him the desired amount. It can also be found, with a bit of luck, while touring the islands with Kapp’n.
Once the player has purchased Wheat Starts from Leif, it’s time to plant. Players must clear slots on the island, select Wheat Seeds in their inventory, and click “Plant 1”. This process can be repeated until the desired amount of wheat has been planted. From there, the wheat takes about four days to grow and will yield a larger crop of three instead of one if watered daily.

Once players have grown and harvested their wheat, it can be processed into flour. To do this, players must take at least five to a cooking station, which can be purchased from the upgraded Nook’s Cranny for 170,000 Bells. Once the cooking station is set up, five wheats can be made into standard or wholemeal flour, with five stalks of wheat yielding ten sacks of flour.
Uses of wheat and flour in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Wheat, in addition to being used to make flour, can be made into a vegetable basket, which only requires one stalk in the recipe. This item cannot be purchased, so having wheat is the only way to obtain it. Meanwhile, flour is much more versatile in its use. At a cooking station, flour can be used to create dozens of different recipes, such as vegetarian pancakes or bread gratin, many of which cannot be purchased anywhere else.
