The Compost mound is a level 28 Summoning familiar. It is summoned using a Compost mound pouch, yielding 0.6 Summoning experience. The Compost mound is immune to poison damage.

  • Through the interact menu, boosts your Farming level by 1 + 2% of your level.
  • Occasionally it will generate super compost, compost, a guam seed, sweetcorn seed or a redberry seed.
  • It's possible to use a bucket on the Compost mound to fill the bucket with compost. This can work 190 times on one Compost mound since it will be damaged for 20 life points every time a bucket is used on it. Previously, this used to be 71 times when EoC was initially introduced, and was only 47 times before EoC.

You can not store any items in it. It deposits the foraged compost in itself, but you can only extract from that inventory.

Compost mound pouchEdit


A compost mound pouch can be made with 47 spirit shards, a green charm, and a bucket of compost.

Generate compost scrollEdit

Generate Compost

A player activating the scroll.


Generate compostEdit

The Compost Mound's special move is called Generate Compost, and is activated by using a Generate compost scroll. It fills a nearby compost bin with compost, with a chance of creating super compost. This chance is of ~1/10.


Using the Compost Mound's special move, a player can train farming by buying buckets from a nearby General Store and filling a nearby compost bin. Each regular compost yields 4.5 experience per bucket or 67.5 experience for the entire compost bin. If you are lucky you get 8.5 experience per supercompost or 127.5 for the entire compost bin. This can be repeated many times while waiting for your crops to grow.

If making pouches in Taverley then compost can be stored with the nearby leprechaun and many pouches can be made quickly.



  • In an update, the Compost Mound received more Health Points totaling 3800 instead of 1400, meaning players could get drastically more compost out of one Compost Mound: 190 instead of 71.
  • The dialect of the Compost Mound is much like that of a stereotypical British farmer located in the South Western region of England.
  • The dialect "Oi've gotta braand new comboine 'aarvester!" is a reference to a lyric from the 1976 hit "Combine Harvester" by "The Wurzels".
