There are tons of blocks and materials in Minecraft that players need to gather to craft and build. Hence, automatic farms are a great way to gather those resources without breaking a sweat. Without a farm, you may have to do all the work like gathering crops or slaying monsters yourself.

There are some really crazy auto farm set-ups out there

If your goal is to get a truckload of a certain item, then building a farm is a far better way to go. These builds may take some effort to set up but will save you hundreds, if not thousands, of hours. Let's take a look at the top 5 farms in Minecraft that you can do right away!

#1 Wheat Farm

The automatic wheat farm is one of the classics in Minecraft, having countless updates and improvements over the years. You can use wheat in recipes for tasty baked goods, such as bread, cookies, and cake. Instead of having to personally plant and harvest wheat, here's an idea of a farm that will do all the hard work for you!

#2 Hostile Mob Farm

Mobs in Minecraft drop experience points as well as certain items after they die. Hence, slaying hostile mobs is an exceptional way to level up and gather items along the way. The two most applicable ones are bones and gunpowder, which have many usages in the game.

#3 Iron Farm

Iron is the second-best material for armors and weapons in Minecraft, just after Diamonds. It's also used in countless recipes, yet, collecting it can be a very time-consuming process. Traditionally, you would have to find iron ore, mine it, create a furnace, smelt it to get the final iron bar. However, there's a quicker way to do it as demonstrated in the video below.

#4 Honey Farm

Make your way into the honey business with a unique set-up of an automatic farm. Aspiring Minecraft beekeepers can now sit back and rejoice, as the production is reduced down to just one single step. Check out the way to optimize a Beehive into pumping out the sweet liquid gold!
