Fred the Farmer is an NPC that features in the Sheep Shearer and the Cold War quests. Players can find Fred at the farmhouse north-west of Lumbridge, south of the Windmill and to the west of the Lumbridge sheep pen. His farm is where players can find onions, which sometimes are hard to find growing wild, especially for non-members.

If the player talks to him and say that he or she has seen the 'Thing', (which is actually just two penguins but he is mortally afraid of it, thinking it's a "shapeshifter") he will start to go on about grabbing chickens and running to the hills. In the end, the player will say that it is two penguins disguised as a sheep. He will ask the player if they have been "in the sun" too much, a refence to sun madness. Ironically, as there is no weather in runescape, this comment makes no sense.

Fred also plays a role in One Small Favour where he is involved in obtaining chickens for that quest.
