Scarecrow detail.png

A scarecrow can be made by members with level 23 Farming. Each scarecrow made grants 25 experience. The scarecrow is placed in the flower patch as protection for sweetcorn planted in the nearby allotments. The scarecrow is used to complete one of the medium Falador achievements. Up to 5 scarecrows can be stored in a tool leprechaun at once unlike the other supplies that allow you to store 255 of the items.

With the scarecrow in the inventory, use it on the flower patch to place it. Note that weeds will grow up around the scarecrow, which does not affect the scarecrow's ability to protect sweetcorn from disease. To remove, a spade is used on the flower patch, which returns the scarecrow to the inventory, alternatively use the 'Clear' option.

Using the 'Clear' option does not return the scarecrow to your inventory.

It is created by using an empty sack on a haystack (like the one in the ranging guild), or hay bale (like the ones in the barn to the west of Lumbridge Windmill), then using the hay sack on a bronze spear to make a hay sack (spear), and finally adding a watermelon.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included—see here for how to help out!
  • patch 2 June 2009 (Update):
    • Hay bales near Draynor can now be used to make scarecrows.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Attempting to use a non-bronze spear on the sack gives the message, "Waste this spear on a scarecrow? I think not - maybe I should find a bronze spear instead."
  • Checking the protection cost in the farming guide used to say "Unsurprisingly, scarecrows don't need protection." It has since been changed to show what items are needed to create a scarecrow.
