The Warwick homestead was once the Nut Island wastewater treatment plant before the bombs fell. The Warwick family settled and they began a thriving farm and a relationship with the Atom Cats. At some point before 2287 Bill Sutton and Cedric Hopton joined the farm and Roger Warwick was replaced by a synth to start experimenting with crops. In 2287 Bill started to suspect Roger was a synth.
The homestead once served as a waste treatment plant but is now host to a small family farming operation. Resources present include 23 tato plants, 11 mutfruit, 5 gourds, a water pump, and a cooking station. None of the beds are usable by the player character unless allied with the settlement. The only unowned container one can use without allying, other than the cooking station, is a tool chest in the tank service building.
There is a hardened primary structure containing sleeping quarters for the residents as well as a secondary building that contains an elevated walkway that leads to two large processing tanks. This walkway grants access to a service building between the two tank structures.
The elevated walkway that passes over the first (northeast) processing tank is broken, making it difficult to access the tank service building. It can be reached by jumping either from a forklift located directly beside the second (southern) tank, or by carefully performed jumps off of the handrail on the broken walkway, or by swimming in the first tank and jumping up the I-beams onto the walkway by the service building. Alternatively, once the settlement workshop has been unlocked, a walkway can be constructed.
There is an arrangement of a Giddyup Buttercup with a teddy bear riding it, that is wearing a sea captain's hat, located between the small service building and the first processing tank on the ocean side.
There is also an arrangement of three wooden blocks forming the word BYE next to some dried flowers; a toy rocketship and toy alien are stuck together with duct tape on a wooden crate on the northern end of the site under the broken metal walkway. It is not possible to move the toys or crate only steal/loot or scrap them. When looted the toys separate along with the duct tape for looting and the crate can then be moved. Underneath the crate is a gold plated flip lighter.
- Mini nuke - In the northwestern building, next to a skeleton.
- Two Vault-Tec lunchboxes - One is sitting on a shelf in the small service room attached to the processing tank on the elevated walkway, in the same room as the mini nuke. The other is on the boat leaning on a sandbar just to the west.
- Goodbye letter - Carried by Bill Sutton.
- Warwick homestead key - On Roger Warwick during Building a Better Crop.
- Building a Better Crop: Dr. Isaac Karlin of the Institute asks the Sole Survivor to deliver genetically-modified seeds to the Roger Warwick synth.
- Feeding the Troops
- Greenskins: A group of super mutants has been terrorizing a group of settlers who are unable to defend themselves. The Sole Survivor is called on to make sure they'll never be a threat to anyone else again.
- Atom Cats: Rowdy will explain how the Atom Cats help the nearby Warwick homestead and vice versa, she then asks the player character to go over and repair a pump for them.
- Bill Sutton (quest): Bill will buy tatos and mutfruit for two caps each once the death threatening event concerning him has been avoided.
- In order to gain Warwick homestead as a settlement, the player must either complete the mission Building a Better Crop or by getting one of the radiant Minutemen quests for this location Warwick Homestead: Greenskins. This quest can be acquired by talking to Roger.
- Despite repairing the water purifier during the Atom Cats quest, the settlement's water value will not be affected.
- The Warwick homestead has been chosen by the Institute to facilitate field testing of various genetically-modified specimens in the unique climate of the Commonwealth, due to the exceptionally fertile soil in the area. The goal of this operation is to modify the plants in order to accelerate the growth rate as well as to increase the growth size. The Institute has replaced Roger Warwick with a synth copy to facilitate this.
- If left untended after completing Building a Better Crop with a peaceful resolution, one of the gourds near the fenced area on the waterfront will start growing to an unusually large size and turn orange, like a giant pumpkin. The settlers will begin commenting on it, including mentions that it is a "prizewinner."
- Cricket can occasionally be found around the homestead.
- To the left of the entrance (coming in) is a poster referencing Fallout 3's GOAT.
- The doors on the northwestern room (connected to from both treatment pools) that has a mini nuke may be glitched so that there is no option to open them but the player character can clip through the doors. If so, they can still place beds in here and the door will eventually be opened by a settler.
- New unassigned settlers may hang out in the tiny side shed on the south side of the main concrete building.
- There are several vents inside the main building which occasionally emit smoke, reducing visibility in the interior.
The Warwick homestead appears only in Fallout 4.
Sometimes, speaking to June causes all controls to cease to work in power armor except for moving and looking around.[verified]
- To solve this reload a previous save prior to talking to June.
Sometimes the Warwick family will spawn in the floor of their house. They cannot be interacted with while in this state. [verified]
- Reloading a save prior to rendering of the Warwick Homestead can solve this issue.
- Leaving the area and coming back at a later time may solve this issue.
- Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide Collector's Edition p.393: "[6.29] WARWICK HOMESTEAD
The fertilizer from this old sewage facility offers great Mutfruit and tato plant growing conditions, if you can get over the stench. Need a Giddyup Buttercup? There’s one here."
