Welcome to the portal page for my HM:BTN site! Select the section you're most interested in from the table of contents below.

NOTE: Harvest Moon Boy & Girl is a port of Back to Nature and its previously-never-released-in-English Girl version. The Boy version of the game is identical to the original PlayStation release of BTN, and thus, this section applies to that version of HM B&G. However, there are some changes between the Boy and Girl versions, so this guide may not be 100% useful for the Girl version.

NOTE 2: Harvest Moon Boy & Girl has a pair of known glitches that this section does not otherwise acknowledge: the horse whistle does not work in the Boy version, and the animal trading option will lock up your game if you try to use it. This only applies to the US version, so far; the Japanese version is unaffected.
