Flax farming is a job that can be assigned to colonists. Flax farmers will plant and harvest flax in a farm with a maximum size of 10x10. Flax can be used to create linseed oil, an important part of coated planks (which are needed for some crafting stations). It is also used to create linen, a vital part in creating research bags. Flax farming must be unlocked in early research, in order to progress in the game. Flax farmers must be near a crate so that they can access the stockpile.
Flax farmers wear purple clothing.
