Hint: Bargaining Cow Breast Milk
Give your female cow mirical potion. Once you do that, wait until she gives birth. After that, milk the female cow twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon (do this every day within the 40 days after she gives birth). Then when Van comes, go talk to him. Say you want to sell something. Give him the milk. He'll tell you how much one bottle of milk cost.
Mega Money and Mega Items
Put in the number of bottles of milk you want to sell(should be more than 20). He'll give you a deal. Don't take it. Then he'll give you another deal for it. Don't take it. Finally he'll give the last offer. Take it. As you will notice, the amount of gold increases each deal. I did this with 67 bottles of milk. I got at least 10,000gold.
What you have to do is have two controllers, one in the first port of your GameCube, the other in the third port. Every time you press START on the controller in port three, you get 10,000 G. In addition to this, if you press Z on the controller plugged into port three, you get all or most of the items. But it should be noted the code works only if you are not in the pause menu (or the 'ruck-sack').
Buy it from Van for 4,000G whenever he has his shop open during Spring.
you must buy a pond for 2,500G from Takakura. Then, during Summer of Chapter 2, wake up in the morning at a later time than your the men you got
Befriend Romana In Fall of Chapter 2, wake up at a later time in the morning than your then the man Romana will knock at your door and give you a cat
Have your game on and be anywhere in the game doing anything (as long as you're not on the start screen or anyother screen that shows you your money... you cant actually watch it rise.). Have another controller plugged into the 3rd slot on your gamecube. While playing have either you or someone else repeatedly press start on the other controller. If it works each time you press start you get 10000 gold! You can do this multiple times!
The hoes and sickles that can be unlocked requires you to get the great field cleared before you can obtain them. The great field can be obtained during chapter 2.The fishing rod can only be obtained in chapter 2 or later.The seed maker can be obtained from Daryl until Takakura offers you the option to order the seed maker.

Brush your sheep's coat every day and also, wash it now and then. Then sheer your sheep when the coat grows and go to Van' shop. This sells for 600 G.
Ok everyone say use the 2 controller in the third slot and press start to get money but dont the money will not work with van or vesta instead put the controller in the third slot and press z and you should have a whole bunch of items sell them either to van or sell the crops seeds and dairy at the food storage place. that money you get you can use it on anything.
Do the following to unlock these animals...
Dog: When you first start out 2 dogs will run up to you and he says you can only keep one. Either choose the Pointy Eared or Long Eared one.
Lizard: In the winter of the first year a white monster will walk up and down the pathway to the Forest people (Elf looking guys who live in a big tree) by your farm. Daryl (The crazy sciencetist) will try to catch the monster. Every day in Winter while the monster is there give him a fish everyday to make him happy. At night walk out of your house and there will be a scene where Daryl is putting food out and Moi (The homeless caveman with flies around him) will take the food while Daryl is bragging about how cool his plan is. Don't miss one of the Winter scenes! Be friends with Daryl and the monster and then you will get the Lizard. (Looks like a alligator and he will come out in Summer and has a bandage on his foot.) WARNING: He will chase you if mess will him in the wild.
Raccoon: In the first chapter Befriend Vesta (Lady who owens the crop farm across the bridge) She will give you the hoe and then she will then later have a scene where she will say you are doing a good job and will give you a raccoon.
Chihuahua: Every year go to the Dig Site (By the waterfall) and find a Stone Tablet every year and on the sixth year he will give you a Chihuahua Dog. (Looks like a mouse.)
Cat: On the second chapter be friends with Romana (Old lady at the Mansion) and in Fall she will knock on the door and give you a cat. It is a boy cat.
The Seed Maker
Okay,first wait until Summer or Spring in Chapter 1. When you are in your farm,talk to Takakura.He will say''I saw somthing called a seed maker in the city''.After that you can order it on the Order Form.When you have it you can put your crops in it and you get seeds.
I Think This is The Right Harvest Moon
ok, this has probably been said here alot, but if you put the controller in slot 3 and hit start you get 10,000 gold. And with the contrroller still in slot 3 hit the Z Button you get alot of items. I did that and thought it was a glitch! And I restart my game! But I checked around on websites and it's a cheat.
The First Things I Did In This Game If You Want To Win Rock's Heart:
1. Hit START when controller is in slot 3 about 15 times.
2. Bought the Food Processing Room
3. Milked my cow and put her out
4. Bought a brown cow
5. At about 10AM I went and gave Rock a thing of milk
6. Went to Celia and bought one of every tree and 2.3.or 4 of almost everything else.
7. Went and planted every seed and watered them
8. Went to the bar and bought a stone oil
9. Put my cow in
10. Went to Rock to talk and give another milk
11. went to bed
I know i did more but my house was on fire, it was the 'Mom,2 Kids & Orange Cat" was the headline for the fire.SO it's been 2 and a half months since I have played that game so when i move back in (APRIL) and do play my game again I'll put more hints for later in Harvest Moon Life
You may know this already, But you can marry one out of these boys:
Rock: He lives at the Inner Inn. He loves statues, Moon drops, and milk. But do not, and I mean not, Give him anything to do with goats. He even hates goat cheese! (How weird is that!)
Merlin: He likes milk, eggs, and any medicine that you can buy from Vans. He hates Tempura, cheese, and goat cheese, and regular cheese. (Whats wrong with this guy?) Gustafa: He loves flowers, old coins, eggs and milk. He hates fish and fishing. and almost anything to do with fish! My favorite scenes are:
Rock: When he takes you to the beach.
Gustafa: When he takes you to the waterfall.
Merlin: When Celia pretends like she is tired so she can let you and Merlin be alone.
