Farmers are level 7 monsters found on farms. They are the only monsters to drop the decorative gardening boots. Farmers can be fair melee training for lower levels that need experience. Farmers are fairly weak, but their level is higher than that of most new or inexperienced players, so these players may risk death if they attack a farmer.

Pickpocketing[edit | edit source]

Players with level 10 Thieving or greater can pickpocket farmers, gaining 14.5 experience and loot of 9 gp, or rarely a potato seed. After the Lost Her Marbles caper from the Thieves' Guild, the advanced pickpocketing loot is unlocked.
