5 best Minecraft farms for survival

#5 - Bamboo Farm

Players can burn bamboo as fuel in Minecraft. Automatic bamboo farms are simple and easy to build. Fuel is required to cook food and smelt items. Players can connect a bamboo farm to their furnaces to make a semi-automatic smelter.

#4 - Villager-based Automatic Crop Farm

Villagers are one of the best mobs in the game. Players can turn an unemployed villager into a farmer by placing a composter near him. Farmer is an unusual villager compared to other villagers in Minecraft.

A farmer can plant seeds and harvest crops. When his inventory gets full, he harvests the crop but drops it on the ground. Using this mechanism, players can create automatic crop farms.

#3 - Iron Farm

Iron is a versatile resource in Minecraft. Players can use villagers to create automatic iron farms. When a group of villagers are scared, they spawn an iron golem for protection.

Players can use a zombie or pillager to scare villagers. Make a dedicated spawning platform for the iron golem, which leads them to a death chamber. Iron farms come in different sizes and designs with varying efficiency.

#2 - Raid Farm

Players can make a simple raid farm and get access to totems of undying. YouTuber Mysticat showcases an easy-to-build raid. This farm produces lots of emeralds, crossbows, and totems of undying.

The only requirement to make this farm work is a pillager outpost. Players have to kill the patrol chief, the guy holding the banner, to trigger a raid.

#1 - Zombie/Skeleton XP Farm
