Villagers are perhaps the most useful mobs in Minecraft. Players can assign sixteen different professions to villagers. Depending on their profession, villagers can offer a variety of unique trades, ranging from armors, tools, weapons, building blocks, foods, and more. Players can create an automatic villager breeder in Minecraft to get all the villager professions.
Building a Villager Breeder in Minecraft
For this tutorial, we will follow YouTuber Slashpixel’s simple villager breeder. This villager breeder works in both Bedrock and Java Edition. Here is a list of all the items needed to build the automatic villager breeder:
- 78 building blocks
- 3 beds
- 2 composters
- 3 trapdoors
- 1 torch
- 2 buttons
- 2 glass
- 1 Redstone torch
- 1 dispenser
- 2 powered rails
- 2 rails
- 1 minecart
- 36 carrots or potatoes
- 2 water buckets
The above video has a step-by-step guide on building the villager breeder. At first, players will have to create a perimeter for the carrot/potato farm. After building walls around the farm, players will have to place beds and create an exit system using trap doors to lure baby villagers into the water stream and then the minecarts.
Before starting to build this farm, players might want to understand the working mechanism of the villager breeder. Villagers are not simple creatures like other mobs, which can be bred by feeding food. These smart mobs only breed when there is an extra bed available and have enough food.
In this build, two farmers work on a carrot/potato farm. Farmer villagers can harvest crops and pick them up. In front of the crop farm, there will be three beds, two for farmers and one for a baby villager. After collecting enough food, both farmers breed and create a small baby villager.
The newborn villager attempts to walk towards the bed, but ends up falling into a water stream due to a trapdoor. This villager breeder features a minecart system to pull out new villagers in a minecart.
