How to build a villager farm

There are a handful of reasons someone might want to build an efficient villager farm in their Minecraft world. Perhaps, they got bored of just surviving, only to beat the Ender Dragon over and over again; they want the power of trade and need an ample supply of villagers to staff their trade rooms. Or, they have become lonely in their large but desolate Minecraft empire and are looking for company. Whatever the purpose and intent, the villager farm itself is pretty simple and will always work through the same fundamental mechanics.

As with any build in Minecraft, it’s important to remember that it’s your own creativity that brings the builds to life. This article will serve as an informative guide to help you understand what it takes to get a villager farm up and running. Of course, there is always room for customization and imagination to make the build your own.


The first two villagers

To breed any mob in Minecraft, of course, you will need two initial representatives of that mafia class. The villagers are no exception. The first step on your journey to a functional villager farm is to acquire two villagers. From this initial couple, the population of villagers will grow exponentially. There are two main methods by which one can obtain these first two.

The first, and much simpler, method is to take villagers directly out of a town. If you are lucky enough to have a town close to your intended construction site, then this is by far the optimal option. You can simply put a villager in a boat and take it to the farm. Yes, villagers can be put into boats; and yes, ships can be driven across land. Place a pot on the ground, right next to the villager’s feet. The villager should automatically be placed in the pot. If this doesn’t work, try pushing them closer to the boat. Once you’ve accomplished this, join the villager in the boat and drive it to the desired location.

Remember, however, that ships can only travel across flat land. They won’t go up a block. A simple The solution to this problem is to use a piston and lever.. Put the piston under the canister and use the lever to activate it. The canister will rise up a block and can now be pulled out of the piston. In the same way, villagers are placed in boats, they can also be placed in mining carts. So, if you have large iron reserves and want to increase your wealth, you can use mining carts and rails as an alternative to the boat, piston and lever system.

Perhaps, however, you have built your base far from any town, or high on the top of a mountain. Relocating villagers over such great distances and to such high altitudes by boat is not ideal. Fortunately, there is a second method by which you can acquire your “Adam and Eve”. Every time a zombie spawns in Minecraft, it has a 5% chance to spawn as zombie villager. These zombie villagers can heal themselves and subsequently become normal, healthy villagers. All you need to do is find a zombie villager, cast a splash potion of weakness on it, and feed it a Golden Apple. It will immediately begin to vibrate and make strange noises. Don’t worry! This means your treatment is working. It may take several minutes, but eventually, the process will complete and you will have become a healthy villager.

When you’ve captured your first two villagers, make sure you trap them somewhere they can’t get away. They love to do that.

building the farm

At this point you have successfully obtained two healthy villagers and are ready to build the farm structure. This is where his creativity and imagination are most useful. There is no one way to build a farm. As long as you meet a short list of requirements, you can build it any way you want. Here are the requirements and some recommendations for building an effective villager farm.

  • One bed for each villager + one extra bed for the next villager to occur
  • A chest to store food.
  • Gates or hatches, to enter and leave the farm
  • Lots of light sources

For the farm to be functional, each villager needs their own bed. You will also need to place an additional bed for the next villager to be produced (number of beds = number of villagers +1). However, you can always create an exorbitant excess of beds to relieve the stress of keeping track of villagers and bed counts.

Placing a chest, designated for storing food, on the farm can greatly increase its efficiency. Villagers require food for mating. You will find that having an easily accessible feed store on the farm is very helpful.

You will also quickly discover that the villagers tend not to sit still. They like to roam and roam freely. However, these tendencies are highly counterproductive and keeping them contained is a necessary part of keeping the farm running. While villagers can open regular doors, they are not capable of opening doors and hatches. Consider using one or both of these options to get in and out of the farm.

Lastly, you will need to equip your villager farm with plenty of light sources. This will rid the farm of dark areas where monsters can spawn, keeping your villagers safe. Here is a list of commonly used light sources in Minecraft that you can use to decorate the farm.

  • Torch
  • Lantern
  • Jack O’ Lantern
  • luminous stone
  • shroomlight
  • candles
  • red stone lamp
  • sea ​​lantern
  • Lighthouse
  • end rod
  • Lichen Glow

Beyond these few requirements, how you build the farm is ultimately your decision. You can build a grand magnificent building, a secret underground facility, or a fenced-in open-air farm. As long as there are enough beds, plenty of food nearby, no way for the villagers to escape, and you’ve made sure the villagers are safe from hostile mobs, building and styling is entirely up to you.

Raising the villagers

Finally, you are ready to get this farm up and running. The hard work is behind you and you are ready to see your villager farm come to life. As long as there are at least three beds (two for the starting villagers and one for the next villager), you’re ready to start breeding.

The villagers need food to mate with each other. You can use bread, beets, potatoes or carrots. For two villagers to start the mating process, they will each need 3 loaves of bread, 12 carrots, 12 potatoes, or 12 beets in their inventory. You can give the food to the villagers simply by leaving it near them; they will eventually pick up the food on their own. After a while, you will notice the villagers standing face to face. They are trading with each other and thus indicate that the mating process has begun. After a few minutes, a baby villager will appear and will eventually grow into an adult villager. You will soon notice that an iron golem has appeared to patrol the area. Fear not! Iron golems are only hostile when attacked. Now that there are three villagers, each with an assigned bed, the game has recognized your farm as a separate village. Iron golems appear to protect villagers from monsters.

There is no limit to the number of times villagers can mate with each other. As the population increases, you will have more and more villagers to breed. The only restriction, now, on how many villagers you produce is how much food you have to give them.
