A Master Farmer is a farmer who cannot be attacked and can only be acted on by pickpocketing. It takes level 38 Thieving to pickpocket them. If the theft is successful, then the player will receive 43 Thieving experience and a random seed or seeds, excluding tree and fruit tree seeds. If the theft attempt fails, then the player is stunned for three seconds and takes damage depending on current life points, from 30 up to 250 life points.

After a theft attempt from a Master Farmer, the player will be unable to buy seeds from Olivia, a seed seller who is in Draynor Village market, for the next fifteen minutes. One way to overcome this is to have a vial of stench (a), a reward from A guild of our own, one of the Thieving Guild capers.

A player with level 39 Thieving can gain around 20,000 experience an hour, while a player with 99 Thieving, A thieving outfit (excluding full Master Camouflage as this does not allow pick-pocketing with a full inventory when the double pickpocket effect triggers) can gain in excess of 150k experience an hour. Lower level players or non-combat accounts looking for easy seeds can safety pickpocket these at a higher Thieving level.

To minimize junk seeds one can fill their inventory with the desired seeds as, providing Master Camouflage outfit is not worn, you can continue pick-pocketing with a full inventory. Master Farmers are a good source for Allotment, Flower, and Hop seeds.
