He's Howard, the eclectic Bluebell cafe owner. He looks like a fierce wrestler who could crush your pathetic little farmer body and throw you all the way to Konohana, but he is really a sweet teddy bear. Howard will help you out by giving you a cooking Pot if you start out in Bluebell Farm, and will also post the requests for the Frying Pan and Spice Rack on the Bluebell message board.

The pink room upstairs in the cafe is Howard's, not Laney's, and you can find his secret diary there.

Birthday: Fall 27

Family: Laney (daughter)

Favorite Wild Animals: None

Disliked Wild Animals: None

Friendship Tips: Howard likes flowers and perfume. You can grow them on your farm or buy the flowers and perfume directly from Can's Flowers. He also likes Chamomile, Lavender, and Magic Red Flower, which you can find for free in the mountain foraging spots. Magic Red Flower is a little rarer than the others.

His favorite item, Royal Milk Tea, is not buyable from any shop. To make it, you need to have the Drink Maker machine on your Bluebell farm so you can process tea into a can of Gold Tea. Gold Tea (Can) requires Straight Tea (Can), Cherry, Banana, and a Mandarin in order to make it.
