IntroductionEdit

Watering can detail

This guide describes the most effective methods to train the Farming skill. Farming is a gathering skill which involves the player planting seeds in Farming patches that are found throughout RuneScape. The planted crops then grow in real time through differing numbers of growth stages. Once a plant has become fully grown the player may check its health and, for some types of crops, harvest items from it. Plants may become diseased over the course of their growth and will die if the disease is not treated. To prevent plants from dying players may wish to pay the gardeners, who are present at most Farming patches, to tend to them. Players can pay the farmers with noted items. This saves a great deal of inventory space when making farming runs.

Gardening trowel detail

As the majority of Farming experience is obtained from checking a fully grown plants' health, levelling the Farming skill is most commonly done via "farm runs". A farm run involves the player quickly visiting as many patches of a particular type as possible to check the health of fully grown plants, remove them and replant new plants in their place. Farming training typically involves farm runs of trees, fruit trees and other special trees once the ability to plant these has been unlocked.

Curry sapling detail

Tree seeds cannot be directly planted into a tree patch. Instead, they must be added to a plant pot, which costs 667, while a gardening trowel is present in the player's inventory or stored on their tool belt, to create a seedling. The seedling can then be watered using a watering can or magic watering can and will, after approximately 5 minutes, turn into a sapling which can be planted in a tree patch. After planting a sapling the player will be left with an empty plant pot, worth 16. Players who do not wish to receive these plant pots can turn on the option "destroy empty plant pots when farming" in the Miscellaneous Settings tab of the Game Settings options. Seedlings and saplings are untradeable. Players wishing to reclaim tree seeds that have been put into plant pots can do so using the right-click "salvage seed" option on a tree sapling, though this has only approximately 75% chance of returning the seed.

Useful equipmentEdit

UrnsEdit

Urns can be used to gain additional Farming experience while training. When held in the inventory, urns are filled as the player farms. Only base experience counts towards filling the urn. Full urns can be teleported away to receive additional experience. Only one urn is filled at a time, though players may own up to a total of 10 full urns. If a player owns 10 full farming urns they must teleport at least 1 away before they can fill more urns. Urns are only tradeable in their (nr), non-runed, forms. In order to use a farming urn the player must add a nature rune to it; this makes the urn untradeable.

Name Crafting level required to add nature rune GE price of non-runed urn Charges gained from Activities Experience required to fill Experience gained for teleporting
Cracked farming urn Cracked farming urn 5 600 Check health and gathering up to and including level 12
Fragile farming urn Fragile farming urn 18 700 Check health and gathering up to and including level 30 500
Farming urn Farming urn 40 1,232 Check health and gathering up to and including level 53
Strong farming urn Strong farming urn 58 2,525 Check health and gathering up to and including level 72 1,100
Decorated farming urn Decorated farming urn 84 3,570 Check health and gathering up to and including level 99 7,000 1,400

Players who have at least level 24 Invention and who have completed Nomad's Elegy can discover how to make an urn enhancer. When in the player’s inventory the urn enhancer grants 25% additional experience for teleporting a full urn. This effect costs 20 charges from the player’s charge pack. Assuming the player purchases divine charges from the Grand Exchange, it would cost 464.94 to use the urn enhancer when teleporting an urn.

Supercompost and Fertile SoilEdit

Supercompost detail

A bucket of supercompost may be used on a Farming patch prior to planting a crop. This increases the amount of produce that is yielded when harvesting the fully grown plant, as well as reducing the chance of the planted crops becoming diseased. The chance of a plant that has been treated with supercompost dying is ~14%. A bucket of supercompost costs 606 and grants 26 Farming experience when it is used to treat a Farming patch. After using a bucket of supercompost on a Farming patch the player is left with an empty bucket, worth 43. Players who do not wish to receive these buckets can turn on the option "destroy empty buckets when farming" in the Miscellaneous Settings tab of the Game Settings options. Up to 1000 supercompost may be stored at and later withdrawn from a Tool leprechaun.

Players who are on the lunar spellbook can alternatively use the Fertile Soil spell to treat a targeted patch with supercompost. Unlike a bucket of supercompost, Fertile Soil can be used on a patch that already has something growing in it. Casting Fertile Soil grants 18 Farming experience and 87 Magic experience.

Rapid GrowthEdit

Rapid Growth

Those who have finished The Light Within and have unlocked the Rapid Growth spell should consider using it on tree and fruit tree patches once a day, if they choose to not pay to protect it. Due to the fact that it removes one chance of dying from disease, it can be worth the price of one cast if the price of protection is higher than that. E.g. a payment of 25 coconuts for a magic seed costs 130,750 and the runes to cast the spell cost 2,904 (by using 3 soul, 3 water, 3 nature, and 3 earth runes). For other ways to cast the spell, for instance by using combination runes, see Rapid Growth for those costs.

Scroll of lifeEdit

Scroll of life detail

A scroll of life can be used to unlock the ability to recover seeds from Farming patches. It can be bought for 10,000 Dungeoneering tokens and requires level 25 Farming and Dungeoneering to use. Its effect gives the player a 10% chance of receiving seeds back when removing dead or fully grown plants from patches, with the exception of flower and special patches. The player also gains a 5% chance of getting a seed back when clearing a tree or dead tree from a tree patch. Seeds recovered from fully grown patches are the same kind as those used to grow the plant, but seeds recovered from dead plants are a random seed of the same type that can be grown in that patch. The amount of seeds returned can be up to and including the number of seeds used to plant at the patch, e.g. up to 3 for an allotment patch.

Amulet of bountiful harvestEdit

While wearing an amulet of bountiful harvest there is a chance that the player will conserve seeds while planting in an allotment patch. The amulet has 10 charges and can be bought from the Grand Exchange for 798.

Farmer's outfitEdit

Farmer's outfit equipped

Wearing components of the farmer's outfit gives a percentage increase in the amount of base experience that is earned when gaining Farming experience. There are five pieces in the set: the farmer's hat, farmer's jacket, farmer's legwear, farmer's cuffs, and farmer's boots. Components of the farmer's outfit can be won from Treasure Hunter or purchased from the Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza reward shop.

Farmer's hat chathead (female)

Players who obtain the farmer's hat add-on as well as a farmer's hat can combine these items to create the modified farmer's hat. In addition to granting a 1% Farming experience bonus, the modified hat gives 3 daily teleports to the Morytania allotment patch. When the modified hat is worn it also gives a 2% chance of saving seeds as they are planted.

Image Name Experience boost
Farmer's hat Farmer's hat 1%
Farmer's jacket Farmer's jacket 1%
Farmer's legwear Farmer's legwear 1%
Farmer's cuffs Farmer's cuffs 1%
Farmer's boots Farmer's boots 1%
Set bonus 1%
Total experience boost 6%

Farming capeEdit

The farming cape may be purchased by players who have achieved level 99 Farming. When equipped, the cape gives a chance to instantly harvest all produce when harvesting from a farming patch. Players who own a max cape, completionist cape, or trimmed completionist cape may use the farming cape on one of these capes to give it the farming cape's perk.

MethodsEdit

Allotments (1-15)Edit

Sweetcorn6

At level 1 Farming players should begin their training by planting at allotments. There are 4 main allotments that contain 2 allotment patches, as well as a flower patch and herb patch. An additional single allotment patch is located at Taverley, though this can only be used to grow potatoes. This patch is automatically looked after by Head Farmer Jones, so potatoes grown in it will never die. 3 seeds are required to plant in each allotment patch. In addition to having the option of paying gardeners to look after them, allotment patches may be protected from disease and death if specific fully grown flowers are planted at nearby flower patches.

How to farm an allotment patch:

Required items: 3 seeds per allotment patch, rake (can be stored in tool belt), seed dibber (can be stored in tool belt), spade (can be stored in tool belt) and teleports.
Optional items: Supercompost/Fertile Soil and payments.

  1. Rake patch to remove weeds, if weeds are present, OR, if seeds have been planted previously, remove dead plant/check health of and harvest from fully grown plant. Harvested crops may be used on tool leprachauns to note them, to free up inventory space.
  2. Treat empty patch with supercompost (optional but highly recommended).
  3. Use seeds on the patch.
  4. Pay farmer to watch crops (optional, not necessary if protecting flower is planted at flower patch).

Wilderness WarbandsEdit

Farming supplies detail

Wilderness Warbands is a dangerous Distraction and Diversion that takes place in the Wilderness. The aim of the Distraction and Diversion is to infiltrate a camp occupied by god-following NPCs and loot supplies, which can then be exchanged with Quercus for experience. Players can gain Farming experience if they obtain and hand in Farming supplies. Players can gain between 49.5 at level 1, and 4,851.5 at level 99, Farming experience per supply that they exchange. Players can loot up to 25 Farming supplies while playing Wilderness Warbands, which grant between 1,237.5 and 121,287.5 Farming experience in total when given to Quercus. Players can calculate the exact amount of experience that they will receive, based on their Farming level and the number of supplies obtained, using the calculator on the Wilderness Warbands article.

Armadyl warband

Wilderness Warbands takes place every 7 hours. The Distraction and Diversion begins with a camp appearing in the Wilderness in one of 3 possible locations. A server-wide announcement will notify players of the camp's location when it spawns. Players can also find out the camp's location by talking to Quercus, who is located north-west of the Varrock Grand Exchange. Players must travel to the camp, avoid the sentries posted around its perimeter and sabotage the camp's god's beam, which is found in the centre of the camp. Successfully sabotaging the beam will result in NPCs allied to the invading players teleporting to the area to fight the NPCs guarding the camp. Players can also intervene in the fight if they wish. After all enemy NPCs have been killed, players can loot the tents in the camp to gain supplies. Each Wilderness Warband has 3 tents which contain supplies that grant experience in 3 of 5 possible skills (Farming, Mining, Construction, Herblore and Smithing). Players may loot up to 25 supplies from tents in the camp. Players may gain additional supplies by killing other players and taking any supplies that defeated players may have looted, as supplies are dropped upon death. Participating in looting tents will skull the player and cause them to become attackable by any other player, regardless of combat levels. Players cannot teleport out of the Wilderness while they have supplies in their inventory, and logging out while inside the Wilderness causes all supplies to be destroyed. Therefore, players must escape from the Wilderness by running out of the area. To avoid being killed by other while participating in Wilderness Warbands players are advised to join one of the dedicated friends chats for the Distraction and Diversion.

Giant OysterEdit

Delicious seaweed detail
Oyster (Tutorial Island) (open)

Giant Oyster is a monthly Distraction and Diversion that can be completed by players who have finished the Beneath Cursed Tides quest. Players can return to Tutorial Island by speaking to Wizard Myrtle near the Wizards' Tower. Once in the area, harvest from the tasty looking seaweed to obtain delicious seaweed. While attempting to harvest the delicious seaweed the player will gain Farming experience, dependent on their Farming level, 30 times. Players can gain up to 2,322 experience per attempt, at level 99 Farming, giving a total of up to 69,660 experience for harvesting the Tasty looking seaweed 30 times. This activity can be completed in approximately 1–2 minutes.

Foraging mushroom clusters (94-99+)Edit

Mushroom cluster

Mushroom clusters are a Farming resource that can be found randomly on Uncharted Isles. Uncharted Isles can be explored from The Arc region, which requires completion of the Impressing the Locals quest to access. Completion of the Flag Fall miniquest, which allows the player to claim an uncharted isle and return to it, is also required to hunt alaea crablets effectively. To find mushroom clusters on Uncharted Isles, the player must first gain some chimes from skilling in The Arc so that they can purchase the supplies required to voyage to Uncharted Isles. Supplies can be purchased from Rosie (supplies). When the player finds an Uncharted Isle with mushroom clusters then they can claim the island using a claim island flag. Once an uncharted isle is claimed the player may return to it for the price of 3 supplies per voyage: 5 supplies per day can be claimed for free from the box next to Rosie.

The mushroom clusters on Uncharted Isles can be harvested at level 94 Farming and yield around 100 mushrooms before depleting. While harvesting the clusters players may be pricked by a thorn which deals damage and interrupts their foraging. Having a higher Farming level and using level boosts may reduce the chance of this occurring. At level 99 harvesting mushrooms grants an experience rate equivalent to 50,000 experience an hour. The harvested mushrooms can be sliced into sliced mushrooms and sold for more chimes. The experience from harvesting mushroom clusters can further be bolstered by completing contracts given by Sojobo (contracts) on Waiko or via a Contract contact on an uncharted isle. Players may complete up to 3 contracts daily, and may purchase upgrades from Boni for a maximum of 7 daily contracts. Doing contracts, however, requires chimes to be able to reroll contracts until satisfactory Farming ones are assigned.
