Brandon is a sculptor and artist who lives at the Workshop with Gotts. He has a quiet demeanor and prefers to be alone.

His birthday is on Autumn 7th. If you set your farmer’s birthday on the same day, his birthday will be on Autumn 22nd instead.

It’s difficult to get him to open up at first before becoming friends.

But everything you need to court him and more can be found in this guide!

 

Schedule

Brandon likes to keep to himself, so his usual locations are just around Mother’s Hill and the forest area behind Gotts’ Workshop.
