How to make an iron farm in Minecraft?
Below is the step by step guide to making an iron farm in Minecraft:
Step 1: Firstly, the farm can be made on a 5×5 footprint so players need a 21×21 grid to make it un-spawnable.
Step 2: Once you have your grid ready, you have to move to the center of the 5×5 grid and place a Shroomlight or Glowstone in the center block.
Step 3: Now you have to spread the three beds evenly and vertically over the light source. The middle bed should cover the light-making block. and then you have to place the double chest on the top-right side of the bed but still within the 5×5 grid.
Step 4: After that players need to place a hopper on the right side of this double chest.
Step 5: Place a second double chest to the right of the first double chest so that it also covers the hopper.
Step 6: Place a final hopper on the right side of the second double chest.
Step 7: Keeping the beds upright, you have to remove the block above the head of the leftmost bed. Place the stone slab in the hole left.
Step 8: Now, take the temporary wool block and then place it on the block where the slab is placed.
Step 9: you have to build a three-block-high wall around the chest and hopper. And also build a block-high wall surrounding the beds, then you have to follow that wall with a row of glass blocks on top of that same wall block.
Step 10: Fill in loose spaces within the grid by placing an inverted stair block near a space not covered by a wall or glass pane. And also add another layer of blocks on top of the glass.
Step 11: Use six spruce trap doors to cover the top opening of the constructed structure. and you have to place five fence pieces lengthwise along the sides of the trap doors.
Step 12: Now place wooden stairs facing each other right next to the endpoints of the fence. and build the fence three blocks high on each side, but placed lengthwise first.
Step 13: In the middle of the three-block-high fences, place three trap doors and activate them.
Step 14: Now, cover the top of the fence with trap doors. Continue to lay the trap door until it covers the entire floor area, such as the ceiling. And place two blocks vertically from the three trap door hoppers under the ceiling. Also, place two blocks vertically from the three trap door hoppers under the ceiling.
Step 15: Place a lava bucket between the trap doors on the fence and the doors on the roof. and also place two water buckets on the stair steps.
Step 16: Now back at the base plane, place the rails to the perimeter of the 21×21 grid, from the opening in the wall. Lastly, place a dirt block and an oak leaf block on top of it. Make sure the piece of rail next to it is the powered one.
Step 17: On the side of the dirt block opposite the powered rail, you have to place a lever. and wait for evening time by opening the bedside walls, nearby villagers must flock to the beds.
Step 18: Now fill the area not spaded with the Oakleaf blocks. Once the zombie is close enough to the minecart on the powered rail, throw the switch and the minecart will propel the zombies to the sleeping villagers.
Step 19: After that, you have to remove the temporary wool block. then iron balls will begin to rise on top of the structure. You can choose to replace the rail blocks with leaf blocks too.
Step 20: Now you have to wall the Minecart zombie in with the villagers, and the farm is complete. and then open the chests at the Minecraft player’s leisure and harvest the iron inside.
