Valley of Stars is a nearly endless game filled with abundant flora, fauna, and side quests. Finding Linus' Blackberry Basket is one of those weird quests that automatically pops up in the story. This hugely popular farming simulator will keep you entertained for hours with its wacky quests and captivating characters.
The man in question is Linus; a quiet, defensive homeless man who lives in a tent behind Robin's house and carpentry. First of all, he is not affectionate towards the player – you will have to earn his trust. An easy way to do this is to complete his quest to bring him back his lost Blackberry Basket. This will reward you with a full friendship heart (we recommend doing this before maxing your friendship with him, otherwise it will be wasted).
The quest in question is reached on the 8th of Fall. Check your mailbox and you will find that Linus has sent a letter to the player asking him to find his lost Blackberry Basket. This quest has no time limit and is part of the story. It cannot be avoided.
Finding the basket is quite simple. It is located in the Backwoods. If you've never encountered it before, getting to this area can be a bit of a headache. Exit your farm on the right and head towards the bus stop. From there, turn left behind the bus and continue. This will take you through the bus tunnel (hint: take a look here too). Keep going and you'll be in a small clearing. Linus' Blackberry Basket awaits you on the north side of the area.
Now pick it up and return to Linus. He is usually found in or near his tent throughout the fall season. There you go, quest complete! See more tips for starting Valley of Stars here.
