----- ----- -----





1. To start the quest, talk to Eli Bacon at the farm which is located north of Port Sarim.




1.1. He will tell you that he has discovered a new type of meat, better than any other in the whole of Runescape!


1.2. He's devised a plan to make the self titled meat (Bacon) popular with the locals and to do this you need to produce more pigs!


2. Half way through talking to Eli, you'll get a cutscene where some locals have discovered the new meat and have now turned crazy and want more of it. They'll enter the section of the farm and begin to eat the pigs (oh no!).


2.1 Eli will tell you that he needs to get the pigs to a safe place and that the locals will need to be distracted. He'll give you some supplies to make some wooden pigs and will also give you a pile of Bacon. He'll tell you to create the wooden pigs and place Bacon on them whilst he takes escorts the pigs to safety.


3. Once your conversation with Eli finishes, you need to create the wooden pigs. There are three pigs to build and there will be three already constructed foundations in the middle of the pig pen. Click on the first wooden pig to begin to properly build it. Then use your Bacon pile on it and the locals will then turn to the wooden pig instead. Build all three wooden pigs and keep adding Bacon to eat pig once the locals eat it all and then turn round to go eat the real pigs.


3.1 Keep repeating the same process of adding Bacon until all six (real) pigs have been led away safely.


4. Once all pigs have been led away safely, you'll need to go down into the cellar which is located in the south-east corner of the small pen that you're in already. Go down there and talk to Eli in the middle of the cellar.


4.1 Eli will tell you that you need to get a pig from Martin the Master Gardener in Draynor and train it up.


5. Go to the Draynor Village market and talk to Martin, he's the NPC with the green 99 Farming Cape.




5.1 Talk to him and ask him for a pig. He will say that you can have a pig as long as you complete a small job for him.


5.2 He asks you to interrogate the thieves just north-west of the pig pen in the marketplace to find out which one has been stealing from him. To do this you'll need to talk to all five thieves. Take note of what they say and work out which one it was.


(Author note: the thief was 'Pickpocket Dan', may differ per player - need verification)


6. Once you've decided who the pickpocket was, talk to Martin again and a cutscene will begin.


6.1 Martin will say that he doesn't want you to kill the thief, but just hurt him to teach him a lesson.


6.2 After some dialogue the camera angle will move to focus on a pig and admire the animal whilst you beat up the thief.


6.3 Once the cutscene has ended and your character has beaten up the thief, Martin will give you the pig.


7. Head back to Eli again and talk with him. He'll tell you to begin work on a machine that will train the pig.


7.1 He'll ask you to work on the machine and give you some oak planks, steel bars and iron nails.


8. Walk over to the machine and select the 'Build' option to begin fixing the machine. Once you've done that, he'll tell you to go and get some wheat to use as food for the pig whilst he trains it.




9. Go to the wheat field which is east of Draynor Village (just north of the small prison which is slightly north-east of the Draynor VIllage bank). Pick five pieces of wheat and return to Eli at the farm.




10. Go into the cellar and speak to Eli again and he says that he needs you to properly clear out the locals in the farm addicted to Bacon. To do this you'll need to send them to sleep.


10.1 Eli will give you some Bacon again and now a potion that will put the locals to sleep for a while.


11. Go back on the farm and add some Bacon to the wooden pigs from earlier in the quest. The use the sleeping potion on the wooden pigs as well.


11.1 Keep repeating this process on all three wooden pigs to make the locals fall asleep.


12. Once you've finished, talk to Eli once again and he will tell you that the locals will fall asleep soon enough, but until then you need to go and get some onions as he's sure that will keep them away for good.


13. You now need to get 5 onions which can be picked from the small field in Rimmington which is west of Port Sarim.




14. Once you've picked 5 onions (don't eat them!), go and talk to Eli again.


15. Eli will be impressed with the pig you've managed to train and now tell you to show it off around a few towns and cities.


15.1 Eli will give you a list of four places you need to go. He'll give you the pig and the list and you need to then show off the pig to everyone!


16. Read the list and choose which place to go. It doesn't matter what order you visit the places.

  • Varrock - You need to go to the centre of Varrock (where the fountain is).
  • Falador - You need to go to the centre of Falador (where the statue and guards are).
  • Ardougne - You need to go to the Ardougne marketplace.
  • Draynor Village - You need to go to the Draynor Village marketplace (where you met Martin).

Note: Each location will have a blue square to outline exactly where you need to go on the mini map if you happen to get lost.


17. As you enter each location, a small cutscene will follow of you showing off your pig to people. It's very short.


18. Once you've shown off your pig in each of the 4 locations, return to Eli again!


19. Speak to Eli and he will thank you for what you've done and tell you that the demand for pigs has risen!


20. Quest complete!

That's about it for now. That's the majority of the guide done. Could do with cleaning a few things up but I think that's it for now at least.


Please post any comments! :)

Possibly worth adding the locations / map of the 4 other pig pits you can visit after the quest.


Lumbridge is just north of the sheep pen, next to the fence of the cabbage field.

Varrock is just west of the loadstone, outside the city wall.

Falador is in the south west corner, south of Herquin's Gem shop and north of the shortcut under the wall.

Ardougne us just north of the northern bank, just north of the fence where the sick sheep roam free



Also you have to pick the onions fresh once you are asked for them. You cant bring them with you. Worth mentioning that there is a small onion field just south of Draynor bank


Thanks to 4be2jue for the sigs.



There are 10 types of people in the world - those that understand binary and those that don't!

Note: The onions has to be handpicked when Eli asks for them. If you bring them before he asks for it, it wont work. Also own farmed onions wont work either.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson
