'I have always marvelled at the ability of the other races to prize food in the manner that they do.

'I have asked one of our promising novices to watch over and guide any new farmers towards learning the very basics of the profession. Their name is <name>, and they is near the farmlands here at the <location>.

'Speak with they, and they will teach you the very basics as they progresses in their own studies.'


Farming is an especially important profession as farmers provide the world with food, and as any hobbit will attest, food is one of the most precious commodities that there is.

Be careful! You will need to complete the correct recipes and deliver the correct items outlined in this quest.

You will need to execute the yellow onion field and yellow onion recipes and deliver the yellow onion. Failing to do so will force you to obtain new raw materials or to restart the quest after a 24-hour delay.

Objective 1

  • Speak with the Novice Farmhand near the farmland in the crafting area

You should speak with the Novice Farmhand to learn more about farming and set yourself on a path to good eating.

Novice Farmhand: 'If you are looking for guidance in farming, then I am prepared to offer you direction.
'If my methods are too fast, feel free to speak to me again, and I will answer any questions that you may have. I will do my best to provide you with clear direction. The first and most important step is having the proper ingredients.
'I have kept some of these ingredients aside for purpose of providing to new farmers. Take this crate and let us begin.'
Farmer vendors, farmhands, sell ingredients and recipes that are a vital part of any Farmer's training and continued work.

Objective 2

  • Open the crate given to you by the Novice Farmhand to collect the apprentice crop seed, bucket of water and handful of fertilizer

The Novice Farmhand provided you with a crate full of ingredients that you can use to grow the yellow onion. Open the crate to get the ingredients.

Novice Farmhand: 'To make the yellow onion, you will need to open the crate of ingredients that I provided to you. Equip your farming tools and head to a farmland and begin farming.'
To open your crafting panel, you can use the T key or click on the crafting button (it looks like a hammer and anvil) in the lower left part of your UI.
Select the Farming tab in the craft UI and find the proper recipe.
Remember: In order to execute a recipe, you must be near the proper facility. Farming requires a farmland.

You now have all the ingredients to make a yellow onion

Objective 3

Novice Farmhand: 'You will first need to plant the onion crop. Do this over at the nearby farmland.'
You have planted a yellow onion field

Objective 4

The Novice Farmhand provided you with the ingredients necessary to create a yellow onion. You must now harvest your yellow onion field and obtain a fair yellow onion crop. To find the field, activate the Track Crops skill.

You have collected a fair yellow onion crop

Objective 5

You have harvested your field, and you are now ready to pick the yellow onion, as instructed by the Novice Farmhand. Make your way to a nearby workbench to pick through your crops.

Novice Farmhand: 'It appears that you have completed the first step of your training. You need only pick the yellow onion from your crop and return it to me for approval.'
'You have picked a yellow onion

Objective 6

The recipe is complete. Do not eat or sale the yellow onion! It is time to show your handiwork to your mentor, the Novice Farmhand.

Novice Farmhand: 'I smell an onion. Oh! Yes, I asked you to grow one for me. Please, allow me to see the onion.'
They takes a moment to admire your handiwork.
'This appears to be the best of your crop. You are well on your way towards becoming a farmer. Well done, <name>.'
