We are in the process of transferring the hosting and maintenance responsibilities of the wiki from Chucklefish to ConcernedApe, which is why the wiki will temporarily be hosted at stardewcommunitywiki.com. Soon the official wiki will resume at stardewvalleywiki.com and will be hosted going forward by ConcernedApe. Prior to the transfer to ConcernedApe we will update this site with the date on which the transfer will occur.

The Torch is a craftable lighting item that can be held to provide light at night, or in dark areas of The Mines, where they can also be gathered by using a Hoe, a Pickaxe, or an Axe. Torches can also be placed indoors or outdoors to provide lighting.

When placing Soggy Newspaper into the Recycling Machine, it can sometimes produce 3 torches.

Torches do not provide as much light as other sources, but they can be walked on by the player. Torches may also be placed on top of Fences.
