Permissions and credits
  • Portuguese
AutoForager (previously AutoShaker) is an open-source mod for Stardew Valley that allows players to automatically shake trees and bushes simply by moving nearby to them.

This mod checks for:
  • Bushes that are currently blooming with berries or tea leaves
    • NOTE: This includes Golden Walnut bushes
  • Fruit trees that currently have fruit on them
  • Trees that have a seed available to be shaken down
    • NOTE: This includes trees with hazelnuts, coconuts, and golden coconuts
  • Forageables throughout Stardew Valley

Explanation of config values can be seen here on Github

  • Custom Trees and Fruit Trees should automatically get recognized by the AutoForager
  • If you are a mod maker working on custom Forageable items, to have your item recognized by the Auto Forager, all you need to do is add the context tag "forage_item" to the item definition
    • Alternatively, you can create a content pack that can also help to categorize your custom forageables / trees

  • Compatible with...
    • Stardew Valley 1.6 or later
    • SMAPI 4.0.0 or later
  • Automatic Integrations
  • No known mod conflicts
    • If you find one please feel free to notify me here or on GitHub

Solo + Multiplayer
  • This mod is player specific, each player that wants to utilize it must have it installed
  • Any bushes that have the potential to have berries on them will be shaken during berry seasons whether or not they have berries on them
