Disney Dreamlight Valley: How to find Rich Soil
Normal soil appears whenever you dig holes in grass, so you may have been digging holes all over the place, expecting rich soil to be a rarer variant of it (similar to the way gems work).
In reality, rich soil doesn’t appear by digging, it appears by harvesting.
As you pluck ingredients out of the ground, on rare occasions you’ll also pluck out a piece of rich soil, which will land on the ground to be collected.
As a rough guide, any time we harvest 200 pumpkins we get around 5-7 pieces of rich soil.
A quick way to get rich soil, then, is to buy and plant a lot of something that grows quickly, like wheat, then harvest it in large batches.
