What’s the point of fences in Harvest Moon?

I’ve recently started playing the original Harvest Moon for the SNES. The farm is surrounded by (movable) fence posts, and it can be added to or rearranged. I can’t tell what it does for me, though.

So what’s the purpose of the fence? Does it have to be a continuous enclosed space? Is it safe to grow crops outside the fence boundary? Do I need to repair damaged fenceposts?


According to this FAQ, fences simply look nice. If you like how a farm looks with a fence, keep ’em around and maintain them. If you don’t care, don’t use ’em!

I always used them to separate parts of my farm for organizational purposes.
