This is a great map for anyone new to Stardew Valley, and even for veterans who want to start a new farm. While more exciting than the standard farm, this farm type isn't as visually exciting as the riverland farm or the hill-top farm. This map is perfectly inbetween, bringing a good balance of visual beauty, available land, and extra bonuses. There really aren't many disadvantages to this farm map other than it's not an extreme of anything.
Overall this is a wonderful place to start in Stardew Valley. Anyone who hasn't played before should seriously consider this map if they have no preference for the others. The forest farm type is the most well rounded and balanced of the farm maps.
