How to make a Composter in Minecraft

If you are making your own village in Minecraft you will need a few job blocks. A composter will ensure your village will have a farmer. The composter recipe is very simple and does not require much investment to make. Composters can be used to make a bone meal out of plant materials, such as tall grass, saplings, and crops.


Items you need to make a Composter in Minecraft


- Seven wooden slabs (Any wood will work)

- Crafting table


The recipe used to involve fences and wooden planks but it has since been changed into the slab recipe it is today.


The recipe to make a composter requires seven wooden slabs. You can mix and match whatever wooden slabs you have to make a composter.


You will also need the 3x3 crafting menu of a crafting table to make a composter.


How to Make a Composter in Minecraft?


In a Nutshell:


To make a composter, place seven pieces of wood around the outside perimeter of the crafting GUI, such that it forms a U shape, leaving a blank space in the middle square, as well as the 2nd box in the first row. Now simply click the composter to collect the block out of the crafting table and drag it into your own inventory.


Step-by-Step Guide(with Pictures):


Here is the step-by-step pictorial guide you need to follow to make a Composter in Minecraft:

That’s all! Your composter is ready to go.


What can you do with a Composter in Minecraft


Composters can be filled with various plant materials such as flowers, carrots, saplings, and tall grass to make a bone meal. Each plant material will raise the level of the composter until it reaches the top. Once it does, it will drop a piece of bone meal for use.


Using composter in Minecraft


As you fill-up the composter you will notice green sparkles similar to when you bone meal crops or grass. Different “tiers” of plant material will yield a different percentage for the composter. Higher quality plant materials like pumpkin pie or cake will fill a composter up almost completely. Whereas simpler plant materials like seeds or leaves will yield less.


You can also assign villagers certain jobs as long as they are not nitwits and their profession is not locked in. An unassigned villager will seek a nearby job block and as long as the conditions are met they will become a farmer villager.
