Hay bales are a form of interactive scenery found throughout farms in RuneScape, and are sometimes able to be searched. Hay bales comes in two shapes: rectangular and three-rounded.

Searching it may result in you finding a needle or possibly having your finger hurt, or a message that says, "You find nothing of interest."

Both searchable and non-searchable hay bales may be used with an empty sack to make a hay sack.




  • Finding a needle in a hay stack is a reference to the saying "It's like finding a needle in a haystack", which means the chances are extremely low.
  • It used to be that a player would discover a needle everytime a haystack was searched. This has since been changed.
  • When you didn't find a needle, it used to be that you took 10 points of damage.
