If you talk to one of the quest givers, they will have one or more dialogue options to sell them crops — one for each sellable crop that you currently have in your inventory. Each quest giver accepts specific crops that are grown on that farm, as listed in the above table. Several crops besides wheat are included in the quest. The "quest" consists of selecting one of the dialogue options, thus selling crops to the farmer.

The implication is that you are being paid for harvesting crops from the farm, but in reality gathering or harvesting the crops is irrelevant. The farmers will accept vegetables from any source — those on the farm that they had previously harvested, ones that you found deep in an ancient tomb, ones that you pickpocketed from the farmer, or ones that you stole from the farm's kitchen table. In short, "Sell Vegetables" would be a more appropriate title than "Gather Wheat".

There are several key differences between selling crops to farmers for this quest and selling crops to normal merchants:

  • Farmers always take all samples of the specified crop that are in your inventory. If you want to sell only a portion of your crops, store that portion elsewhere before talking to the farmer.
  • Farmers will purchase any stolen samples.
  • The amount purchased is not limited by the farmer's available gold.
  • The farmers always pay you the base value of the crops, regardless of your Speech skill and perks. This is the only way for low-level characters to receive money for various vegetables that cost 1 gold.
  • You never gain any Speech experience for the sale.

After harvesting, crops will regrow when the farm respawns after ten days.

The reward for completing this "quest" is however much money you earn for the sale of your collected vegetables. This is not leveled, as it is the base value of the crops that is being used. Thus, your "reward" depends upon number of crops and the type of crop sold.


  • This quest does not have any stages or objectives.
  • This quest can be repeated indefinitely.
  • Money you earn from gathering crops is fixed and is not affected by your Speech skill. This makes the quest one of the few ways to make money without increasing any skills, which will help control your level. This is useful when wanting to train in a certain skill as many times as possible. It is also one of the few ways to earn money without doing any questing, merchanting, or crafting.
  • Because this is a favor quest which affects the quest giver's disposition, it will count towards the "Help the People" part of the thane quest for the quest giver's hold.
  • There is no one in the game that will buy carrots, green and red apples, and tomatoes, most likely because they don't exist as an actual plant (such as potatoes) in the game world in the base game. In the Hearthfire add-on, you can plant and grow carrots, but there still is no one who will buy them off of you.
