I found the best way to do this ever! Plant 60 or so higher value crops (I used roses) and let them wither. Then harvest them using 2 of your avatars at once. Harvesting withered crops does not cost you energy and goes much slower than regular harvesting so you have a chance to collect your rewards. By alternating between you and your spouse/child you get a reward often enough that your meter does not restart. I clicked on about 15-20 crops with my "me" avatar then switched to my spouse and clicked another 15-20 and so on until all crops were highlighted. Then just picked up the bonuses as they dropped.

okay, the main issue is replentishing your energy without allowing the bonus bar to reset. I get "insane" without even realizing it. When your energy gets down to about 10, click item after item till you get to no less than 3 energy. collect all of those bonuses but a few, pull up your inventory. just prior to it coming up, collect the few bonuses left. quickly click on food (in your inventory & leave to go back to your game, continue on your bonus bar. MAKE SURE prior to beginning that you have set your inventory page so a multipl,e meal is availible to click on. Also, never go to collect on items where you have to walk to go to another spot to harvest, your bar will expire. Again, be sure to load-up on collecting back-to-back bonuses prior to pulling your inventory for more food/energy! works well for me! Good luck!

I was having difficulty reaching the 'Insane' level, also. I had read the previous posts, but my computer is just too slow. I finally reached insane level by selling 17 adult sheep in a row with the quick sale box clicked. I found this was actually the fastest processor of bonus items. If you do not have any ready adult animals, I tried with hope chests too. It worked. Make about 20--start selling and clicking-slow and meticulously.

@Sandy M and Zaecus: Bless you both. I tried the 60 clover and chicken one by one (150-200) together and it finally worked but not without my heart pulsating 3x faster! Using the coup alone didnt work for me cos the bonuses disappear quite fast and I also didnt have enough crops me then. Thx much! Finally got it done in one try! Cheers!

hehe sry ;-) but just dont double click the objects. click each with a little pause so they dont go transparent and blocks the other objects. I have around 250 chickens and 3 coops. hire 3 friends to harvest your trees and harvest the ones left. Then you should get insane too.

Harvesting my chickens manually finally let me get there, but I had to do it twice because the game hung up the first time and the bonus bar vanished before I could click the next item.

I would click a chicken. Click the next chicken. click the bonus items from the first chicken. click another chicken. collect the bonus items from the second chicken. and so on.

Thank you, Joanne; your advice really worked for me. I also found that I had to get the 7-course feast (62 energy) in order to get to "Insane."

Thanks for the tip. It took a few tries, but I finally got it. I did the chickens manually so I wouldn't miss any of the bonus goodies. But sheesh! I was about crosseyed by the time I got it and held my breath as the thing went to the reset message just after I had shared the bonus! Grrrrrrrr...that was nasty.

I got tired of using all my energy before I could get to insane so I used a long strip of land I had and started planting clover.... it doesnt use your energy to plant.... I took my time clicked on bonuses and just kept SLOWLY planting till the first ones were ready to harvest. then I started harvesting. I had to do this about 4 times before I finally got the right pace in order to reach Insane

@ Christin Sciulli. My special delivery showed up off screen to the side of my frontier.
I used the chicken coop and click on the bonus objects. A lot of my bonus items showed up on the side of the frontier. I kept clicking and voila'!!!!

Picture?type=square

Update: Nope. Bonus bar vanished on me while I was trying to click a bonus fast enough to keep it around.

Picture?type=square

None of the suggestions here help for me. I have no idea how long bonus items hang around for those giving the suggestions, but by the time mine show up on the screen, I've got -maybe- three seconds to click them.

The bar takes TEN to fill.

And then 3 or less to vanish.

I tried using the chicken coop, and even a 'cheat' that slowed down bonus vanishing. As soon as the bonuses from the chickens start showing up, they start flying off the screen. The cheat no longer works to slow them down.

The only one I haven't tried is my fruit tree grove, guess I'll try that next, but I don't have much hope.

I had a lot of problems with this one ... I could never quite get to the "insane" point. So, I bought a whole lot of chickens (I had about 150, bought 150 to 200 more) and then used the chicken coop to harvest. I slowly clicked on the coins/stars as they appeared ... don't get overwhelmed, just slowly click through them. It worked! Then, I sold my chickens. Yes, cost a bit, but definitely worth it to get rid of that part of the mission!

Ok this is how you do it get all your fruit trees together have them all ready make sure you have full energy do 1 tree go to the furthest corner from the trees do a couple tree chops a couple digs quickly then head back to your fruit trees and go nuts by the time your guy gets back there you will have a lot done on fruit trees if not all do not collect the bonuses until your at the fruit trees if you run out of energy when the box comes up ask friends skip then when the other comes up for th3 3 meals click one quick and go back to collecting and harvesting i've done it this way over and over again

It's not a matter of going insanely fast. Concentrate on area where there are lots of items ready so you're not losing time going in between things. Click a few and collect the bonuses, make sure you get them all (that's the key is collecting every single one). If one fades away becuase you missed it, the bonus counter resets. I clicked a few cows started snagging or catching the bonuses and in between try to click on a ready item and just keep doing it. You'll get insane in no time. Remember, concentrate on an area where there are lots of ready items (animals, crops, trees, etc.) and catch them all.

Same here,the game freezes or locks up and thebonus items are not recognized and then it resets and nothing. Very frustrating!!!! cant get to the insane level.

I STILL CAN NOT GET THIS GOAL.. i HAVE HARVESTED MY CHICKENS SO MANY TIMES NOW. i AM BEGINNING TO THINK THIS GOAL IS NOT DOABLE. i WAS CLICKING PRETTY FAST AND NOTHING.
