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.

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 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 β€œtiers” 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.

Congratulations! A composter is a simple block which can turn leftover seeds, grass, and surplus crops into bone meal. They can also help you assign the farmer profession to villagers. A farmer will grow food for the village and give them the food needed to make baby villagers.
