Since the middle of October, we've had an idea that Zynga is working on something big for the Winter / Christmas season in FarmVille. It turns out that we're probably looking at an entirely new farm - the fourth to be released thus far. Why a fourth farm? If images spotted by the folks at FVNation are correct, it looks like we have a ton of new crops and trees that are currently unreleased, but in the game's files, that are all in a Winter / Christmas theme, and the last time we saw this amount of items being unreleased (but in the same theme), it was right around the time that Lighthouse Cove was launched.
We already know that Ice Tulips and Ice Roses are coming, but what about Peppermint Candies, Gummy Bears, Holly, Ice Carrots, Ice Rice, Gingerbread Men and Ice Strawberries? All of those crops, and more, have been spotted (the names might vary in their final forms) with completely new Market Stalls to match. There's even a mastery sign for what looks like the Ice Rice, so this proves without much doubt that we'll either A) see the biggest winter holiday theme in the game to date or B) be able to plant these crops on an entirely new farm. To be fair, it looks like the Gingerbread and Gummy Bear crops will likely be limited edition crops on our Home Farms, as the Market Stalls are similar to those already in the game.
Personally? I might fall out of my chair when the new Christmas-themed farm is launched (that is, if it is launched), and not because I think it's a bad idea, but because I'll probably need to tape my wallet shut to prevent a mass spending on Farm Cash! Whatever ends up happening with these crops / Market Stalls, we'll make sure to let you know.

Would you be excited to take control of a fourth farm, even if it is themed to a specific time of year / holiday? Sound off in the comments.
