*These numbers assume workers are educated.

A single educated worker with tools is able to tend to a field of up to around 125 squares for the maximum amount of food per worker. This is assuming that the worker lives near to the field, there is a storage barn near to the field, and that the crop is a fast growing one (such as beans).

As with all workers, happier and healthier workers will spend less time idling, further increasing the potential amount of food.

*Number of workers automatically allocated.
**These numbers assume workers are educated.

The most commonly used orchard size is 15 x 4, which combines the best food per worker with a good tree density.

Having the recommended number of workers on the orchard is usually the most productive, but if you have houses and storage barns very close, then you can have your farmers tending more trees.

Orientation for orchards is based on the compass, with the south-most row of an orchard always having a row of trees. (use the minimap to keep track of north). Trees are positioned every 2 squares along, and every 3 squares down - when north is at the top or bottom.
For example, in an 9 x 7 orchard, the tree layout would look like this:

*Numbers correct when cemetery entrance is at the top or bottom.

Orientation for cemeteries is based on the main entrance being at the top or bottom (press R to rotate when placing). Graves are positioned every 1 squares along, and every 2 squares down (with gaps for the middle path and along the edges).

Because of the path going down the middle of the cemetery, as well as the surrounding wall, larger graveyards are more efficient in terms of the number of graves.

All sizes of pastures require just one worker to function optimally - although larger pastures are assigned 2 farmers by default, they gain no additional benefit from the extra farmer.

Each cow takes requires 20 squares of pasture, and so a pasture with 20 x 10 pasture with 200 squares can have 10 cows - the minimum number needed to split your herd.
