FarmVille 2 ‘Counting Sheep’ Quests: Everything You Need To Know

As part of the new Sheep Shack event in FarmVille 2, farmers are now encouraged to complete a series of quests called “Counting Sheep”. There are eight quests in this series, and they require the use of some limited time crops in the store.

That being the case, you’ll want to start them as soon as possible to not get left behind. We’re here with a guide to completing this quests, with some details thanks to V56.
