Where to find Barley in Valheim

You can get barley by harvesting it in the plains biome from fuling villages; you can also find flax, albeit rarely, in these same villages

However, the fulings that inhabit these villages are dangerous foes, so we recommend only bringing your best weapons and armor to face them. 

We suggest having at least iron and have a good bow such as a dragur fang to deal with them with ease; both of these will also help with deathsquitos.
