A Swinery (sometimes called a Sty) is used to house and breed pigs. A wild pig can be led to a sty by dropping wheat near it.

To build a Swinery, you first need to build a ranch from

The ranch must be upgraded with either a food trough or water trough before it can be converted to a swinery. Even though it is technically possible to build a swinery with only one trough, it is strongly advised to provide the pigs with both food and water.

Water Trough Upgrade (Holds max of 1000 water):

  • 20 Black, Termite-resistant, Nontoxic Boards
