Wheat is one of the most common and easy crops to grow in Minecraft. The crop is grown using wheat seeds, which can be obtained by breaking the grass. Each clump of grass can drop 0 or 1 wheat seed.
Wheat farms can also be found in towns, which are tended by farmers. Breaking a fully grown wheat crop drops bread, which is one of the main food sources early in the game.
Player-made wheat farms are some of the most common farms in the game. This is because they are easy to build and the materials needed to build them can be easily obtained. All players need to do is collect wheat seeds, turn the land into farmland with a hoe, and right-click on the farmland to plant the wheat seeds.
This article will showcase some of the best wheat farm designs on the internet.

Top 5 Exemplary Wheat Farms in Minecraft
5) Simple 9×9 farm
The simple farm can also be called the ‘default’ crop farm design. This layout comes directly from the game’s wiki and is widely used by beginners and experienced players alike. Players must mark an area nine blocks wide and nine blocks long. The block in the middle of the area is left empty for the water to enter. Other blocks must be turned into farmland by using a hoe with the ‘/give’ command, or by going into creative mode.
4) Use walls or fences
This technique is excellent for protecting one’s farm from hostile mobs and other hostile entities that can destroy or afflict the farm. Using blocks as walls or fences to surround the farm can be very beneficial. Also, players can use the blocks to install torches or lanterns as light sources, to prevent mobs from spawning near the farm in the first case.
3) Fully automatic wheat farm
Automatic farms require little or no work once the farm construction is complete. This automatic wheat farm, designed by YouTuber Dusty Dude, is pretty simple and convenient. The layout works as follows:
- The farmland is used to plant wheat seeds.
- A farmer villager is taken to work on the farm.
- The player must ensure that the farmer’s inventory is filled at some point.
- After this, the farmer will drop all the collected wheat on the ground.
- Since the farmland is not a complete block, players can place hoppers underneath it to transfer the wheat crop to safety.
2) Semi-automatic wheat farm
This semi-automatic wheat farm skin is quite popular in the Minecraft community. Popular YouTuber Felix “Pewdiepie” has also used this technique in the past. However, the difference between his farm and this farm is that Pewdiepie’s farm had villagers re-sow the wheat seeds, which made his farm automatic. However, on this farm, players will need to replant the wheat seeds themselves.
Players will need Redstone Dust, Buttons, Dispensers, Hoppers, and Chests. The functionality is quite simple. Once the farm is fully grown, players must press a button that they have installed near the redstone circuit below the farm.
This button will activate the dispensary at the top of the farm, which will dump water onto the farm, propelling the crops into the hoppers, which will then fill the chest with wheat and seeds.
1) Compact AFK wheat farm
This easy-to-make, all-purpose Minecraft crop farm is fully automatic and has a compact design. Players can go AFK while the farm does its job. Players will need a ton of different blocks, mining carts, hoppers, a villager, buckets of water, redstone torches, powered rails, regular rails, a composter, walls, slabs, and more for this build.
The farm uses mining carts and hoppers to collect the wheat and deposit it into chests for players to collect later. Players will need to build a small underground area for chests and mining carts.
