The Farming cape can be purchased for 99,000 coins alongside the Farming hood from Martin the Master Gardener at Draynor Village by players who have achieved skill mastery (level 99) in Farming. It is the Cape of Accomplishment for the Farming skill.

A player performing the farming cape's emote.

Like all skill capes, the Farming cape gives +9 to all defensive stats, and also a +4 bonus to prayer if it is trimmed, which requires a separate skill at level 99. The cape is automatically trimmed if this condition is met.

When the farming cape is equipped, herb patches will have a 5% increase to the base chance to save harvest lives and gain extra herbs. This effect stacks additively with the magic secateurs. It also provides unlimited teleports to the Farming Guild in the Kebos Lowlands. Unlike the magic secateurs, this cape does not increase yield when harvesting herbs off a Herbiboar.[1]

Like all skillcapes, except the Quest point cape, equipping the cape or using the "Boost" option in the equipment menu temporarily boosts Farming by +1, up to 100. This only affects the yield of belladonna, as limpwurt plants require a boost to 101 for additional yield.[2] Unequipping the cape will remove the boost, this boost cannot be used to restore temporary skill drains.

This item can be stored in the cape rack of a costume room, as part of the Farming cape set, along with the hood. Ultimate Ironmen will be unable to retrieve individual pieces until the full set is stored.

The cape is noteworthy for providing an unlimited, wearable teleport that brings the player close to both a bank and a Spirit tree, and therefore quick access to both the Grand Exchange and a player's house as well as other locations.

As of 1 February 2023, there are 180,343 players that have achieved level 99 in Farming.

In response to the question: "Does the farming cape's increased yield effect also work when harvesting herbs from herbiboars?"
  2. ^ Jagex. Mod Ash's Twitter account. 13 October 2020. Archived from the original on 31 January 2022. Player: "Need clarity on this: harvesting limpwurts is a base of 3 + scaling +1 for each 10 levels, 90-99 being +9, does boosting to 100+ then result in +10?" Mod Ash: "It's picking a random number between 0 and (stat - 1) inclusive. So if you boost to 101, it has a small chance to roll 100, which would give the +10. (in addition to the base of 3)" Player: "Thanks, are there any other farming patches/crops that are affected by boosts above 100?" Mod Ash: "Belladonna has something similar."
