So, the problem was that either the acf field key field was not imported or the field key for the fields on the two sites were different. Each field that ACF saves has a corresponding value in the DB that holds the field key. If that is not in the database, or the key is incorrect then ACF does not know what to do with the value. You’ll either get the wrong output or nothing at all unless it a simple text field.
