The Harvest Sprites are special creatures who are around to help you with your every day life on the farm. They can do many tasks. These tasks include watering crops, harvesting crops, and caring for animals.
The Harvest Sprites live in a hut behind the church. To find it, take that small path towards the right of the church entrance and walk down. Eventually you'll see a hut, and this is where the seven Harvest Sprites live.
Below is a list of each of the names of the harvest sprites and their birthdays.
To become better friends with the Harvest Sprites you will need to give them their favorite items. Below is a list of these items and their locations. One of the items (Colored Grass) is found in many different colors. It is best to give the Harvest Sprite that corresponds directly with the color of the Grass. Conveniently enough there is a colored grass for each of the seven different sprites. One of their most favorite items is Flour, but it sells for 50G at the Supermarket.
Unlike other versions of Harvest Moon, this time around it isn't so easy to have the Sprites work on your farm. First you have to train them for a few weeks before they are ready to work on your farm at a good pace. To train them, go to the hut sometime during the day. Choose a sprite in which you would like to train and give them some of their favorite items (Colored Grass, Flour, Honey) until the chosen sprite has a friendship rating of 3 hearts (check your stats pages).
Once this task has been completed you can start training. Talk to the Sprite and select the second option (Let's Play). Then you will be given three choices. It is best to keep one sprite on one career path to train them faster.
Choose the job in which you would like that sprite to train in. Then the mini game will begin and you will be given instructions on how to play. The games are rather easy. It will take a while before the Sprites become trained well enough to work on your farm. You can track how fast they are learning on the Harvest Sprites Stats page.
