The fourth season a player encounters in Stardew Valley is the winter season. A player already needs to be prepared before the beginning of the winters as it is the most difficult season in Stardew Valley. There is no grass or weeds which make fiber and hay difficult to obtain. Still, you can purchase hay from Marnie’s Ranch and fiber can be found in The Mines.

Do you know what makes, still, winter one of the best seasons? These are the most valuable items which you will get to see only in winters.
