Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town (Bokujou Monogatari: Mineral Town no Nakama Tachi in Japan) is a video game for the Game Boy Advance, developed by Marvelous Interactive Inc. and published in the U.S. by Natsume. It was released in November 2003.
- Initially there is very little on the farm, save some old tools. The player must begin by clearing the large field on the farm of weeds, tree stumps, twigs and rocks, all varying in size. From there, the player must plant a variety of crops to earn money to buy other needed things, such as livestock, in order to run a successful farm.
- The social aspect of FoMT, as in other Harvest Moon games, is a very large part of the game. There are many villagers to befriend, and in doing so the player may unlock certain items and events that otherwise would be inaccessible. There are six eligible bachelorettes to choose from, including the Harvest Goddess. Once married, it is possible to have a son.
- The game offers connectivity with the Nintendo GameCube game Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life using a link cable between the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo GameCube.
