Farmers are level 10 and can be a challenge for new players. These are the only humans to drop the decorative gardening boots. Farmers can be fair melee training for lower levels that need experience. There is usually a farmer by Rat Burgiss. Farmers may seem weak to new players, but their level is higher than that of most new or inexperienced players, so these players risk death if they attack a farmer. However, if players run away from the farmer, he will stop chasing them after they leave a certain area.
Sometimes players hunt them for their gardening boots drops.
Farmers are located:
- One on the road from Lumbridge to Varrock.
- Two in the potato field north of Lumbridge.
- One on the road from Lumbridge to Draynor Village.
- Two in the farm north of Ardougne.
- One in the farm south of Falador.
- One wandering near the potato field north of Lumbridge.
