Auto-Grabber.png  Auto-Grabber Full.png
Automatically harvests from your animals each morning. Must be placed inside a coop or barn.
Cost: Gold.png25,000g

Unlocked at: Farming Skill Icon.png Farming Level 10
Sold by: Marnie's Ranch

The Auto-Grabber automatically harvests milk from cows and goats and wool from sheep when placed in a Barn. It automatically harvests all products produced by Coop animals when placed in a coop. It can be purchased from Marnie's Ranch for Gold.png25,000g after obtaining Farming Level 10. Once unlocked, players may purchase as many Auto-Grabbers as they can afford. An Auto-Grabber may occasionally be found in treasure rooms in the Skull Cavern.

Each morning, the Auto-Grabber will automatically harvest all products in the Barn or Coop where it is placed. The Auto-Grabber acts like a chest, holding up to 36 harvested items (or stacks of harvested items). Items can be viewed or removed by right-clicking on the Auto-Grabber. Note that an empty Auto-Grabber cannot be opened.

Auto-Grabbers can be placed anywhere, but will not do anything unless placed inside a barn or coop. To remove an Auto-Grabber, it must be struck with a tool (repeated left-clicking or holding left-click will not work).

Auto-Grabbers cannot be sold.

Animal Friendship

The Auto-Grabber prevents the player from earning +5 friendship points for manually milking or shearing an animal. Thus, it will take longer for animals who have not reached the maximum of 5 hearts to do so, if placed in a barn with an Auto-Grabber. Keep in mind, animals will lose 5-10 friendship if not interacted with, meaning animals who aren't hand-pet, milked, or sheared, will lose friendship gradually overtime despite still being fed and let outside.

This effect can be cancelled out by the use of an Auto-Petter.


The day after reaching Farming Level 10, the player will receive a letter in the mail from Marnie.


I've got a new item in stock... It's called the "Auto-Grabber".

This thing can milk your cows and goats, shear your sheep, gather eggs, and pluck your wooly rabbits... all on its own!

It's considered a 'luxury item', so I'm charging 25,000g.



  • 1.3: Introduced.
  • 1.4: Now works in coops as well as barns.
