Scarecrows and their Range

As you already know, scarecrows are used to keeping crows away from a farm. Just like that, Scarecrows in Stardew Valley are used for the same purpose for keeping the crows away that eat the crops. Scarecrows are not needed for crops that are grown from Wild Seeds as crows do not attack them. You can start crafting for scarecrows from Farming Level 1.


A scarecrow will usually protect the farm surround a circle of 248 spaces. This means eight spaces in each, north, south, east, and west. As well as six spaces to the north-east, south-east, south-west and north-west. In simple words, we can say it will protect an area of 17×17, excluding ten spaces on each corner.

Rarecrows work just the same way as the Scarecrows; just they change the overall look of the farm. The funniest thing is, there is an Aliencrow on which you cannot put a hat, and on the other ones, you can place. However, there are 8 Rarecrows. When you craft the 8th Rarecrow, you will receive a letter with a recipe for a Deluxe Scarecrow
