Farming is one of the five gathering skills players can choose on FantasyRP. Players can gather in any farm around Enarion, so long as they use a hoe to farm with. With hoes, crops will automatically be replanted. Farms generally are found in nations, provided as a source of food for roleplay. Farms grow at the same rates as they do in vanilla, provided that a player is in the vicinity to allow the crops to grow.
Herb and Ingredient Bags are optional for farmers, and allow extra space in their inventory to store their herbs and spices. Herb Bags, as true to their name, can store herbs. Ingredient Bags only hold spices, and are also unable to hold rice.
As well as this, around the map there are nodes of fruits, otherwise known as "farmable heads", they use skins on player heads to represent what they are. These can be harvested by farmers by right-clicking with a sheer, this is what these nodes look like.

Relation to Other Professions:
Chef: An obvious choice, cooking requires both vanilla drops from farming, as well as herbs and spices that come from random drops. Creating custom foods is one of the most efficient ways to level up, as crafting vanilla foods does not yield as much xp.
Alchemist: A great crafting profession to pair with farming, as farming yields the most herbs with the greatest variety out of any other profession.
