Stardew Valley is just the best farming game at the moment. After you are given a farm from your grandfather, leaving your terrible office life, you can then build up your farm, clear the land, get animals, interact with locals, attend festivals and so much more. The game is based on energy, which can be regenerated by sleeping at the end of the day. It’s just so relaxing and fun.

Instead of running a farm in a world similar to ours, Tour of Neverland tasks you with creating your own farm on a tropical island!

FarmVille 2: Country Escape
FarmVille 2: Country Escape is a more arcade farming game, where you can slowly build up your farm over time, growing different crops and getting various animals to help make your farm profitable.

WeFarm is a newer farming game that has some really adorable graphics. I particularly love the animations on the different animals you can get for your farm! You can farm, fish, sell items, and help out neighbours. Helping out others will give you better relationships with them and they can help you along the way too. There is a slightly bigger world to explore, bringing some adventure to farming.
Egg, Inc. is a clicker farming game where your farm is basically all about chickens who are producing eggs for you to sell.
