Farming training - OSRS Wiki
Farming training focuses heavily on doing tree runs, which is a recurring training method. Much like dailies and recurring money making methods, tree runs give Farming experience passively over time since it is possible to only do 1 or 2 runs per day. Instead of actively training the skill for hours, players only spend a few minutes to do a run, gaining a lot of Farming experience during that short amount of time, and then do other activities while waiting for the patches to grow. While trees take very long to grow in real time, players spend very little time actively doing tree runs.
Doing tree runs costs money, and certain saplings and protection payments can be quite expensive. It is recommended to have a decent amount of capital to be able to buy a lot of Farming supplies at once, and have a good money making method to sustain the cost of doing tree runs. Herb runs are often highly profitable and they also offer a fair amount of Farming experience, but usually it is better to look into money making alternatives that offer better profit.

Levels 1–35: Questing[edit | edit source]
Early levels can be skipped by completing quests that give Farming experience. Completing the Goblin generals subquest of Recipe for Disaster, Fairytale I - Growing Pains, Forgettable Tale..., Garden of Tranquillity, Enlightened Journey, and My Arm's Big Adventure grants a total of 22,500 experience, which will get the player up to level 35. This skips much of the tediousness of low-level Farming and allows the player to do effective farm runs straight away.
Levels 1–15: Bagged plants[edit | edit source]
The fastest way to train the early levels is to plant bagged plants in the player-owned house. However, it is significantly more expensive than planting seeds.
If the garden supplier does not have enough stock, players can hop worlds to buy more bagged plants.
The quickest way to plant them, assuming that your house is in Rimmington, is to bring three watering cans, a stack of coins, and as many noted bagged plants as you can afford. You can hand your notes to Phials to un-note them (for a small fee) and refill your watering cans in the building just east of the well.
To make the process even faster, spam the 1 button while planting and removing the bagged plants. This will select the bagged plant and confirm the removal, allowing you to plant and remove plants very quickly.
Bagged plants are one of the only ways to actively train farming without waiting for anything to grow.

Levels 1–13: Making sulphurous fertiliser[edit | edit source]
Sulphurous fertilisers can be made when the player has 5% Hosidius favour, each granting 2 experience in Farming. Gaining 100% favour from 5.0% requires 950 to be made and handed in if choosing to use this method for gaining favour. A player that starts at level 1 Farming will get 13 Farming by creating these 950 sulphurous fertilisers.
Levels 1–15: Making supercompost/ultracompost[edit | edit source]
Another option to train the early levels is to make supercompost or ultracompost in a compost bin. Each bucket of supercompost grants 8.5 farming experience, or 10 experience with the addition of volcanic ash to produce ultracompost.
Watermelons and pineapples are the easiest candidates for the produce used, with the latter easily purchased in convenient quantities from Trader Stan's Trading Post.
Levels 1–15: Farming allotments[edit | edit source]
- Seed Table
- Farming/Patch locations
- Crop running
Levels 1–15: Sorceress's garden[edit | edit source]
In the Sorceress's Garden minigame, players can pick sq'irk fruits or herbs from the gardens. No Thieving level is required, but a higher Thieving level increases Thieving experience rates. Picking any sq'irk yields 60 Farming experience and 1 of those sq'irks, completing the winter garden to 15 requires 41 laps. Picking from the herb patch yields 50 Farming experience and two random herbs from any garden which requires 49 laps.
This method, once the gardens are set up correct for 1-click methods, is one of the least click-intensive ways to train. Training using only this method from 65 to 99 Thieving yields 503,520 Farming experience.
The most effective way to gain Farming experience is to plant the highest-tier tree, fruit tree, and hardwood tree saplings available, along with the special tree saplings (calquat, celastrus, crystal, and redwood). After the trees have grown, the player checks the health of a fully grown tree for Farming experience, pays the farmer to chop down the tree and replants the tree.
Tree runs are a passive training method and they offer the fastest experience effectively by far. For example, if it took the player 5 minutes to do a tree run and the player gained 100,000 Farming experience from the run, the experience rate would effectively be 1,200,000 experience per hour (12 runs per one actively spent hour). Players would only spend 5 minutes to do the run and then do something else while the trees grow, such as train other skills.
Even though it is only possible to do 1 or 2 tree runs per day, doing tree runs over time ends up being much faster than doing methods that offer faster experience in real time, such as farming allotments. Tree runs should be the first priority for Farming training, and active training methods should only be done if Farming is the player's last skill to level 99. Getting level 99 Farming should take around 3-4 months at most if the player does tree runs fairly consistently.

General information and tips[edit | edit source]
Players should always pay the farmer to chop down the trees for replanting. This is much faster than chopping the tree yourself and it only costs a small amount of money. The celastrus tree has valuable harvest however, and for some players it can be worthwhile to spend extra time to gather the celastrus barks.
Generally it is best to pay the farmer to look after the tree, so it cannot die and players are guaranteed to get the Farming experience from checking the health of the tree. Certain payments can be very expensive, so it may be worthwhile to treat the patch with ultracompost instead to minimise the chance of disease. This can save some money depending on the tree and payment, but it is slightly slower overall as sometimes the tree will die and players would have spent time for no experience gained. The Resurrect Crops Arceuus spell also helps reduce the number of trees lost this way. The tree patch in Falador Park will never get diseased after completion of the elite tasks in the Falador Diary.
It is best to buy the saplings from the Grand Exchange as this saves time, but it can be worthwhile to grow the saplings yourself to save some money. Saplings are made by using a tree seed on a filled plant pot while having a gardening trowel in your inventory, using a watering can on the seedlings to water them and then waiting for them to grow into saplings. Saplings grow while stored in bank, so players do not have to have them in their inventory. Players who have level 68 Magic and have completed Dream Mentor can use Humidify spell to water the seedlings faster.
Farming regular trees is usually much more expensive compared to other options. Players who are not in a rush to level up Farming are advised to only farm fruit trees, hardwood trees and special trees for cheaper experience. Depending on the prices, it may also be worthwhile to farm palm trees instead of dragonfruit trees at higher levels, as growing dragonfruit trees costs 10.09 per experience and palm trees would only cost 5. 01 per experience, including the protection payments.
