Energy is a resource used to perform actions on the Homestead. Most actions consume 1 Energy until a Varmint appears. Performing an action around Varmints uses +1 extra Energy point,but now you can do action as when you don't have varmint. Planting Crops and removing withered Crops does not consume any Energy.
Energy Bar[]
The Energy Bar displays the amount of Energy currently available to the Pioneer. Hovering over the Energy Bar with the mouse will display two numbers. The first number represents the amount of current Energy (as a combination of both Regular Energy and Bonus Energy), and the second number displays the Maximum Energy Level.
Regular Energy[]
Energy displayed in the Energy Bar as a white number represents an amount of Energy that can be easily replenished. This type of Regular Energy is restricted, and can not be greater than the Maximum Energy Level.
This Regular Energy can be replenished as follows (but only up to the level of the Maximum Energy Level):
 Energy automatically replenishes at a rate of 1 Energy point every 5 minutes.
 Buying Meals at the Market replenishes Energy according to the type of Meal.
 Collecting Meal Gifts from the News Feed replenishes Energy according to the type of Gift bonus.
 Completing some Collections replenishes Energy according to the type of Collection bonus.
 Gaining an Experience Level resets the Energy to the equivalent Maximum Energy Level.
 Working on the Homestead will sometimes compensate the amount of Energy used to perform the action.
 Visiting Neighbors will sometimes generate 1 Energy for their tending actions.
Bonus Energy[]
Energy displayed in the Energy Bar as a yellow number represents an amount of Energy that exceeds the normal Maximum Energy Level.
This Bonus Energy can be gained as follows:
 Visiting Neighbors will yield 5 Energy for the first visit or 1 Energy per subsequent daily visit.
 Harvesting an adult Horse will yield 0  4 Energy.
 Harvesting an adult Mule will yield 3 Energy.
 Harvesting Mystery Animals often yields 1  2 Energy.
 Collecting the Daily Bonus at the Inn adds 3 Energy.
 Collecting Today's Weather bonus will yield various amounts of Energy.
 Energy is a possible prize from Mystery Gifts.
Maximum Energy Level[]
The Maximum Energy Level is a function of the Pioneer's current Experience Level, Goals that have been accomplished on the Homestead, from Collections, and from the Market.
Some Pioneers who have been on the Homestead for a long period of time may have a slightly higher Maximum Energy Level, as the game has made some adjustments since its inception.
Pioneers with many Neighbors may have also received more Beef Jerky from Mystery Gifts, giving them a much higher Energy Level to Experience Level ratio.
