Flour is one of the ingredients used in multiple cooking recipes in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
However, to find flour, you first need to grow wheat, because without it you will not be able to prepare any flour-based cooking recipes.
Below you’ll learn where to get wheat, how to grow it, and when you’re ready, how to make flour in New Horizons.

Where to get wheat in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
If you want to grow wheat on your island in New Horizons, you first need to find a wheat starter and there are two ways to do this.
The first method is to buy the starting wheat for Leif when he visits your island or once you have opened his stall on Harv’s island.
The stock at Leif’s stall on Harv Island only changes every Monday, meaning that if he is not currently selling wheat, you should visit him in a week to see if this stock has changed.
A single starter of wheat costs you 280 bells, while a batch of five costs 1400 bells.
You can also find wheat growing on one of the islands that Kapp’n takes you to.
Remember: You will only be able to find and farm wheat if you have downloaded the free version 2.0 patch for New Horizons.
The Animal Crossing 2.0 and Happy Home Paradise update is here! We can help you with the new additions, including where to find Brewster, Gyroids, new villagers, ordinances, new fences, storage shed, new hairstyles, Froggy Chair, group stretches, and Kapp’n boat tours. Cooking can now be unlocked, so you need to know how to make flour and sugar, as well as how to grow carrots, potatoes and tomatoes. In the meantime, if you’re new to Animal Crossing, our New Horizons tips can help you with the basics. From the beginning, there are fish and insects to catch, flowers and fruits to grow. A long-term goal is to increase your Happy Home Academy score. Finally, you need tools like the new ladder and pole to fully explore.
How to grow wheat in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Wheat starts in hand, it’s time to grow wheat in New Horizons, which, especially if you’ve grown pumpkins, you’ll find quite easy.
First, you need to find an open space on your island that you feel comfortable transforming into a garden. After finding the perfect spot, open your inventory and select the wheat seeds.
You’ll want to select ‘Plant 1’ to start planting wheat, and once you’ve planted as many as you want, you can start watering them! However, it is not necessary to water them when it rains or snows.
It will take four days for wheat to fully grow, and while it will continue to grow without being watered, doing so will reward you with a larger harvest, so it’s definitely worth the effort. Once you have harvested your wheat, you will only have to wait two days for it to grow more and, again, watering it will ensure a larger harvest.
Wheat fully grown and irrigated.
How to make flour in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
To make flour in New Horizons, you must first grow wheat, and if you have followed the steps above, you will have already harvested your first wheat harvest.
For five bags of flour, or whole wheat flour, you need five pieces of wheat.
You can make flour in your favorite stove and, later, you can use it for other cooking recipes, such as making a Vegetable Sandwich.
I hope you enjoy cooking in New Horizons!
