How to Make an Easy Automatic Farm
Introduction: How to Make an Easy Automatic Farm
In this tutorial I’ll teach you how to make an easy automatic farm by using a villager.
It’s super simple, and very useful. There are many other ways of making automatic farms using villagers, but I like this type best.
You can use it for many different vegetables, like carrots, potatoes, beets, etc.
Step 1: The First Foundation
Make a 9×9 platform out dirt, but leave a hole in the middle for the water.
Step 2: Time for a Swim!
Put a block underneath the hole, then fill it with water.
Step 3: Don’t Forget the Fence!
Build a wall around the dirt (Don’t build it on the dirt, build it around the dirt).
Step 4: Let’s Farm!
Hoe all the dirt.
Step 5: Where Did It Go!?
Cover the outer part of the dirt underneath with hoppers (make sure they connect).
Step 6: Cover It All!
Cover the rest of the dirt with hoppers that all connect to a corner one.
Step 7: Ooh! Treasure!
Put a chest underneath the main corner hopper.
Step 8: We’ll Catch Him With a Trap!
Build something that will contain the villager so it doesn’t escape.
Step 9: We Caught One!
Spawn a villager in the box (make sure it’s a farmer!), after that, drop as many stacks of seeds to him until his inventory is full (that is, when he can’t pick up anymore).
Step 10: Be Free!
You can plant the seeds, then let the villager free.
To speed things up, you can use bonemeal to grow the wheat faster.
Step 11: Wheat!
When the villager destroys the grown wheat, he won’t be able to pick any of it up, so it falls through the dirt into the hoppers, which from their goes to the chest.

These are My top 5 favourite automatic farms on Minecraft
Some of my Favourite Minecraft farms
I use farms a lot in Minecraft, whenever i’m playing survival, i’ll build as many farms as possible; for those who don’t know what farms in Minecraft are, they are made by players to let them gain more resources than if they were to go into the world searching for them, they can range from a simple wheat farms to a ridiculously massive, automatic and fairly useless ice farm as seen on the sci-craft server.
Today I won’t be going over the top with ridiculous farms that i don’t even know how to build, instead i’ll share some of my favourites to build and to generally have in my world.
First off is the all important Villager Breeder:
My Villager Breeder in my Realm
the Villager breeder is a very simple farm, you only need a couple stacks of carrots, three villagers, some stacks of dirt, some building blocks, 4 beds and 12 trapdoors. it works by having a farmer villager in the main body of the farm, where all the carrots are. (villager breeding is a bit weird, essentially if two villager are given carrots they share them between each other and after a few seconds they make a baby villager who grows up). the farmer drops some carrots to the two villagers in the trapdoors, they then produce baby villagers who are collected in the glass container, it is a very efficient farm and to pick villagers out of the glass, all you have to do is send a minecart into the edge of one of the pieces of glass. you can then go on to make more complicated farms using other villager mechanics or use the villagers to get enchanted books or whatever.
Secondly is the good old iron farm:
Quick Iron Farm i whipped up in a creative world
This is the current design for the iron farm that I use, ALL the time. its super simple, this is a really good use of villager mechanics, it produces around 400-500 iron per hour. it uses the simple mechanic of villagers seeing a zombie, becoming frightened and then spawning an iron Golem ONLY if they have a Job. its fairly iron heavy as you do need 45 iron ingots to start off with, as you need to make a 3×3 area for the collection system with hoppers, but apart from that you only need a couple stacks of building blocks, water, lava, six beds, six crafting benches, three slabs, nine+ hopper (depending on how many chests you want) a cauldron and some fence posts and gates; you do need six villagers but that should be fine since you built the villager breeder, and one zombie with a name tag on. overall a really nice and fun build and very useful for a reliable source of iron, hardest challenge is getting the villagers in their cells and the zombie in the cauldron.
In third comes the AFK Fish farm
another farm i quickly made in a creative world
The AFK fish farm is so simple and so efficient. its very cheap in resources but it gives you all sorts, from fish to enchanted books to bows. all you need is a pressure pad, a fence, one building block of your choice, a Noteblock, an iron trapdoor, water, a hopper and a chest; that is exactly 14 iron, 1 Redstone and 32 wood, you will need to make at least two fishing rods before starting, this will be for a short time as the AFK fish farm gives you enchanted fishing rods over time. I highly recommend this farm to anyone who plays survival Minecraft, however be aware of the new 1.16 update coming soon, it may change some mechanic which stop us from making this farm work.
The Fourth farm is the Witch Farm:
The witch farm in My Realm
Witch farms are AMAZING, they produce so many materials: Glowstone, Gunpowder, Sticks, Spider Eyes, Redstone, Glass Bottles and Sugar. you get stacks upon stacks of this within only an hour of setting it up, it is quite expensive to build but after that you gain so much from it, its worth it. you will need, around 6 stacks of any building block, around a stack of redstone, 42 tripwire hooks, around 3 stacks of string, some redstone torches, two stacks of iron and some chests, plus you will need to find a witch hut. This is an amazing video showing how to make the witch farm. i really enjoyed making it myself and i hope you have the same experience.
Lastly is the Slime Farm:
My slime farm in my Realm
I must say, building a slime farm takes time, a lot of time, you have to excavate a whole chunk (16×16 area) all the way down to bedrock in a slime chunk but after its completed, it is very satisfying. The design i use may not be the most efficient, however it does give you more than enough slime to work with. it uses a lot of slabs, magma blocks and you will need a lot of gold, enough for nearly four stacks of powered rails, you will also want a pickaxe with efficiency five, mending and a beacon if you can. they are not essential, they just save time. it is also quite iron heavy as you need nearly seven stacks of iron however if you have built all the other farms already this shouldn’t be too bad, it was a big hassle but it pays off with the satisfaction of seeing the slime roll in. this video doesn’t show you exactly how to make it block by block but it is still a very good tutorial
Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed it and i’ll see you on the next one.
