The crate is an item that can be crafted at an Iron Workshop or greater, it is useless until you fill it with something, you can fill the crate with Berries, Apples, Onions, and Coconuts.


If you are a great farmer and produce lots of products every minute you might want somewhere else to place your goods instead of keeping them in your inventory, you can craft crates for better stocking, a good way to do it is building a barn close to your farm, then you can store your goods inside there.


The value of the crate depends on its content, if it is empty it doesn't worth nothing, your best bet is to fill it with coconuts because they are slightly difficult to find and farming with it is not very profitable.
