There should be tokens/relics to speed up farm and mine production. Maybe a 2x and a 3 or 4x token.
Boosting the iron and food production like Clash Of Clans?
I think the closest feature we have is using the iron or food bundles we got from Valor, for now.
Yes like COC and many others you can boost production by 2x, 3x, or 4x for 12 or 24 hours or something like that. The bundles are nice but it would be pretty sweet if we could boost production for a limited amount of time as well.
One thing is for sure, this game is a grind. Not ideal for people who are lazy or lacks the imagination to get resources. However, if you are rich, you can buy them as ALMOST everything here is for sale.
