A Winter without Snow Yam (S.Y.) is incomplete. But are you familiar with this nice foraged good? Check out this guide about the root vegetable and what you can get from them!
It’s sad to see Fall go after the 28th day in Stardew Valley. There are no more competitions, giant Pumpkins on the field, and appealing wind gusts. As the cold takes place, new hurdles and opportunities appear. However, a new season also means another deal for Foraging.
As one of the five available wild loot you can find in the cold, S.Y. appears to take over your inventory. And in this guide, we’ll talk about the item, where to locate it, and what it can do for you.

What is a Snow Yam?
It looks like a regular Yam, but it’s hiding underneath thick layers of snow. It’s invisible to plain sight until you use a Hoe
How to Find a Snow Yam
The foraged good is strictly available during Winter only. These are three ways to get S.Y.:
- Digging Artifact Spots – Depends on the map (11 – 16%).
- Tillable Soil Anywhere – Use a Hoe to dig any soil outside the farm (4%).
- Wild Winter Seeds – Planting this crafted item either on the homestead or Greenhouse for seven days is guaranteed to get S.Y. (Botanist profession also applies).
- Traveling Cart – 300g-1000g
- Garbage Cans
As with every item you can find in the wild, this one doesn’t sell much.
