However, obtaining an Oak Resin takes about seven to eight days. You’ll need to construct a tapper and place it in an Oak Tree to receive it successfully.

Where can you store a Keg?
You can store this equipment in farm buildings, like Shed, Barn, Cellar, Coops, and Cabins. Coops are the cheapest, but they can only hold fewer Kegs. You can also store them outside your farm.
While you have some alternative options in placing this equipment, like the Calico Desert, Railroad, Quarry, Tunnel, and Road. These areas are inaccessible to villagers, which prevents them from unintentionally destroying your layout.
Initially, the Cabins are the most affordable if you don’t upgrade them, offering the smallest land area of only 15 tiles. But once upgraded, it can offer a larger space that can hold 113- 351 items, depending on the level.
Moreover, you may get these buildings at Robin’s carpenter shop. So, pay her a visit to purchase them! Below is a complete list of farm structures, including the spaces it offers:
|Farm Buildings||Offered Spaces|
|Optimal Big Shed||137|
|Empty, Unclaimed Cabin||42|
|Single Upgrade Cabin||1113|
|Two Upgrade Cabin||351|
