Beans detail.png

Beans are currency used in the player-owned farm. They can be exchanged for certain animals, items, and unlocks at the Farmers' Market. 500 are initially obtained during the tutorial at Manor Farm. They can be stored in the currency pouch, however they can not be withdrawn once added. The maximum beans that can be stored is 1,000,000.

  • At level 99 Farming, an additional 100 beans are given by Granny Potterington.
  • At level 120 Farming, an additional 500 beans (total: 600) are given by Granny Potterington.
  • At 200M Farming experience, an additional 1000 beans (total: 1600) are given by Granny Potterington.
  • VIP members for 2018 receive 500 free beans from the VIP area at the Grand Exchange.

To obtain more beans past these, the player must sell animals to their respective buyers. Depending on the size of animal the npc is buying, they will appear and stay for different lengths of time. It is recommended to force the particular buyer you want to appear by placing those animals in pens before the reset happens. Alternatively, speaking to Granny Potterington will allow you to advertise specific animals, forcing their buyers to appear.

If using Magic bean (leafy) to grow herbs[edit | edit source]

When planted in a herb patch the following values can be expected, based on the player's level. To maximise profit, use the following items to maximise the crop yield:
Magic secateurs from Fairy Tale I - Growing Pains, which boosts yield 10%.
Greenfingers aura, which boosts yield 3%, 5%, 7%, 10%, or 15% depending on tier.
Juju farming potion from Herblore Habitat, which gives a 33% chance of picking double herbs, effectively increasing yield by 33%.
Scroll of life, which gives a 10% chance of returning your seed after you've harvested it.
The hard Wilderness achievements will make the patch disease-free, increasing your overall profits.
