    How to Make Flour

    To get Flour, you’ll need to make it from Wheat. However, to get Wheat, you’ll need to grow it yourself. While growing Wheat isn’t nearly as difficult as growing Blue Roses, there are still a few steps involved in the process.

    How to Get Wheat Starts

    Buying Wheat Starts from Leif.

    To grow Wheat, you’ll need to first get some Wheat Starts. You can buy these from Leif for 280 Bells each. Leif doesn’t follow a consistent schedule for visiting your island, so you’ll need to either wait or tinker around with the date and time settings on your Switch to find him. He visits once every two weeks between the hours of 5AM to 10PM. However, Leif will not always have Wheat Starts in stock, so even if you find him, you may need to do so multiple times.

    Once you’ve obtained the Wheat Starts, you can plant them, wait for them to grow, and then harvest the Wheat. But if this process sounds too laborious, you can unlock Leif’s shop on Harv’s Island Plaza and purchase from Leif there instead.

    How to Unlock and Use Harv’s Island Plaza

    Arriving at Harvey's new Island Plaza.

    To make use of Harv’s Island Plaza, you will first need to visit Harv’s Island. Go to your island’s airport and choose to visit Harv. The first time you visit, you’ll need to check out Harv’s photo studio. Once that’s complete and you return home, Harv will send a letter in the mail inviting you back again. Go back to his island and speak with him and Harriet about their new project.

    Next, you’ll need to speak with the Lloids to figure out which one is taking donations for the plant vendor. Donate 100,000 Bells to this Lloid, wait a bit, return to the island, and Leif will have his shop set up there.

    Once you buy the Wheat Starts here, simply plant them, wait for them to grow, and harvest the Wheat.

    How to Make a Kitchen

    Recipe for a Stonework Kitchen.

    Once you have your Wheat, you’re almost ready to turn it into Flour. However, to do so, you will need to have a Kitchen. The DIY Recipe for a Stonework Kitchen can be obtained by purchasing the DIY Recipes+ at the Nook Shop for 2,000 Nook Miles. The Stonework Kitchen recipe requires:

    Once you have your Kitchen built, you can immediately make Flour from your Wheat.

    How to Make Whole-Wheat Flour

    Recipe for Whole-Wheat Flour.

    If you’re looking to expand your recipe list, you’ll likely want to get some Whole-Wheat Flour as well. Whole-Wheat Flour is used to make the following:
