Harvey in Stardew Valley

If you’ve been playing the game for a long time, I’m pretty sure you know this person. Harvey is one of the NPCs in Stardew Valley. He’s the town doctor and the guy you’ll want to check on early on.

Harvey’s age is around 28 to 35 years old. That’s the average for someone who just finished medical school. In fact, it’s quite early for his age. He lives in Pelican Town and is one of its most diligent citizens.

There are a lot of things in the game that you can do and one of these things is befriending and getting to know Harvey’s schedule in Stardew Valley. As a doctor, he’s a pretty busy person. But this is the definitive guide you need in order to know everything about Harvey.

Relationships in Stardew Valley: Harvey as a Husband

Building relationships is as important as building your own farming simulator. It’s one of the reasons why Stardew Valley itself is a pretty neat game, both as an RPG, and a farming and dating simulator because everything is farmable as hell.

Even friendship has its own meter here, but that’s okay. Building relationships both in real life and in-game is important because it has its own perks.

At the start of your game in Stardew Valley, Harvey and Haru seem they’re dating first, but it’s noticeable that Harvey is quite fond of his nurse.

Harvey’s Likes and Dislikes:

There are a lot of things that Harvey likes as a gift and would often comment on what you’ll give him. Here is the complete list of what he would like to receive, as well as the things you’d like to avoid giving.
