Tired of picking up all those bananas yourself? So is this guy, but at least he's paid to do it. Farmer will auto-gather all bananas in his radius so you don't have to.
~ Bloons TD 5 Deluxe and Bloons TD 6 Description
The Banana Farmer doesn't believe in popping Bloons, but he's an expert when it comes to collecting bananas. Place him near your Banana Farms and he'll save you from the trouble of manually collecting the bananas.
~ BMC Mobile Description

The Monkey Farmer, alternatively called Banana Farmer, is a special agent that debuted in Bloons TD 5 Deluxe, and has appeared in other future BTD games since. It only costs Monkey Dollar40 (BloonjaminsIcon50 in BTD6) making it one of the cheapest special agents in the game (the others being Pontoon and Portable Lake).

It collects bananas (or boxes) within its large range from Banana Farms, crates dropped by Supply Drop Snipers, and also the crate dropped by the Heli Pilot's Support Chinook on BTD5 Mobile. It's particularly useful if you need to auto-collect from different sources without having to manage other towers. You need to place it 50 times in order to get the Monkey Farmer Pro (Total cost of Monkey Dollar2000).


Bloons TD 5 Deluxe and Mobile[]

Main article: Monkey Farmer (BTD5)

Monkey Farmer makes its first appearance in Bloons TD 5 Deluxe. It costs Monkey Dollar40 to purchase. It automatically collects any collectable, including bananas, Supply Drop crates, and Bloon Traps.

In Bloons TD 5 Mobile, it makes a return in an early update. It is very similar to its original counterpart, except it can't autocollect Bloon Traps.

Bloons Monkey City Mobile[]

Main article: Monkey Farmer (BMC)

On March 2016, the Monkey Farmer became a tower for Bloons Monkey City Mobile. It costs $1.99 USD for each Banana Barn and the Farmer itself is free to place when capturing tiles. Along with its original capability of collecting bananas and crates in-game, each Banana Barn building purchased provides a 10% increased capacity to each Banana Farm in the city, thus the effect can stack with other Barns. These do not appear in the Monkey Buildings tab until the Banana Farm Lab is built, provided that the player's City is at least Level 15.

Bloons TD Battles[]

Main article: Monkey Farmer (BTDB Mobile)

On October 27th 2016, the Monkey Farmer became available on Bloons TD Battles Mobile as a one-use tower, and costs Medallion Icon200 each (formerly Medallion Icon100). It can be used only if the player chooses Banana Farms along the battle.

On December 19th 2018, Monkey Farmer now has a premium version of himself called Robo Farmer. Robo Farmer can collect all bananas from the entire screen, as well as attracting bananas towards him three times as fast. A set of 5 Robo Farmers cost $2.99 USD and will replace your Monkey Farmers when you pick a Banana Farm, until you use all of your Robo Farmers. Robo Farmers are also earned by spinning the Battle Spinner and hoping for a lucky spin.

Bloons TD 6[]

Main article: Banana Farmer

On July 13th 2018, Monkey Farmer makes a return to BTD6 as "Banana Farmer". He now costs BloonjaminsIcon50. He can collect all nearby bananas and crates from Banana Farms, as well as other collectables such as Cash Drops and Supply Drop crates, and later on crates from Monkeyopolis (since Version 2.0), and Bloon Traps and XXXL Traps.

In The Update 22.0 There was an Halloween Special skin called The Grim Reaper which is limited to only Halloween It costs 50Trophies.

In The Update 33.0 There was an skin for the Banana Farmer added called Banan It costs 100Trophies.

Bloons Adventure Time TD[]

Main article: Monkey Farmer (BATTD)

Monkey Farmer returns as a legendary ally in Bloons Adventure Time TD. Unlike all other variants of Monkey Farmer, the farmer can reach collectables across any range and costs in-game money instead of a secondary currency. To unlock Monkey Farmer, a lucky Legendary Wish Orb must be opened and the Monkey Farmer collected. Alternatively, the farmer can be purchased for $2.99 USD.

Bloons TD Battles 2[]

Main article: Banana Farmer (BTDB2)

Banana Farmers are added in Update 1.8. Instead of buying one by one, you can get your first pack of 5 for free, 20 of them for 700 Monkey Money, or 50 of them for 1,500 Monkey money. It doesn't only pick up bananas in his range, it can collect ALL of the bananas on the screen so you can just place one banana farmer, and it collects everything like Bananas, Crates, Full bloon traps, and bananas from Obyn's wall of trees!



The general strategy for Monkey Farmer in any game the farmer appears in is for convenience of picking up collectable income. For less hassles with collecting collectable income, Monkey Farmer makes picking up of any collectable income source become automatic, provided the farmer can reach the collectables.


  • Place near a large congregation of Banana Farms or wherever a large source of collectable income is.

BTD5 generation[]

  • It was released again in Bloons TD 5 Mobile because it is much harder to tap the bananas instead of moving your mouse on them and can be pretty risky because sometimes a tap might miss a banana and can spoil.
  • Monkey Farmer can farm Bloon Traps that are full and the Care Packages dropped by the Support Chinook and the Supply Drop Ability.
    • Farmers cannot farm Bloon Traps on the Mobile/Steam Version however.
    • They can farm lives gained by Attrition, though this is rarely observed because the lives auto collect.
      • It can be seen if auto collecting is turned off in the code, then the Banana Farmer will pickup the "crates" generated by Attrition.
  • This tower is one of the only two special agents that are monkeys, the other being Super Monkey Storm.
  • This is the only tower that can be used on any terrain tile in Bloons Monkey City Mobile, even if it's a Special Terrain tile that imposes tower restrictions.
  • The Monkey Farmer used to be able to "steal" bananas from another person in BTD5 Co-Op, though this has been patched.
  • Even though it doesn't attack bloons, BTD5 Monkey Sub with Advanced Intel still attacks bloons within its range.
    • This might be a clue due to the Pro version which shoots banana peels on the track, and the Farmer's range prior to being Pro is used to collect bananas.
  • A fully-upgraded Al's Custom Chippers will mostly obsolete this agent, since it makes Bloonchippers suck in bananas, but only if the Specialty building is active.
    • It may be efficient only if the given Specialty Building is a better choice in case of limited tower selection.
  • In Bloons Monkey City Mobile, if you have the Banana Replicator special item which increases the capacity of the player's first Farm by 150 (1150 capacity total) in the city, placing a Banana Barn will give a City Cash115 capacity increase to the first Farm (1265 capacity total) instead of 100.
  • Although Farmers does not pop any Bloons, they do have a pop count in their tower interface.
  • Before the Robo Farmer update, Monkey Farmers used to cost Medallion Icon100 each instead of 200.


  • In BTD6, Advanced Intel does not consider Banana Farmer range to be valid intel.
