How to Train Farming in RuneScape

A really good way to train farming in RuneScape.

Farming is a skill that takes a long time to get to 99.  It used to be that the only way to train farming was to plant a crop and wait for it to grow, but not anymore.

First off you are going to need seeds, lots and lots of seeds.  This is where thieving comes in handy.  Go to Draynor village and thieve from the master farmer and ONLY HIM.  If you steel from a stall then this strategy won’t work.  If you thieve from the farmer, then you can sell the seeds that you don’t want to the stalls and make some cash.  With your seeds in hand, go to a traditional farming patch, I recomend Catherbury because you have bank and water faucet.  Perform the farming actions like compost and water and bind your amulet of nature or farming to a patch that you want to make profit from, aka the herb patch.  The amulet will let you know if your crop is in trouble and you can go to it.  After you have done this, grab your spade and take a break, by playing the Vinesweeper mini game.  This mini game is a game that can give farming experience equal to the points you have or a portion of the points.  The game is played exactly like minesweeper that windows created.  If you don’t know how to play minesweeper here is the lowdown.  When you click on a square, a number comes up.  That number represents how many bombs are around the number.  If you get an eight for example, all the squares around it are bombs.  If you get a one, that means there is only one bomb next to that number.  Oh next to is also considered diagonally too.  So when you get into Vine sweeper dig on a place of ground and put the corresponding flags around the number.  I suggest you read the info that Jag-ex has made and go onto a world where there are a lot of people playing that mini game because you can get points from others.  All during this mini game, you can leave to go water your patches and train farming up at the same time.  This will take a while to do, but if you train this skill constantly, it will become easier. 

Hope this helped
