Join your Minecraft world and find a plot of land where you’d like your farm to be.


Map out how large you’d like your farm to be by placing a fence around it. (You can find a variety of different fences in your inventory)

Making a fenced area



Now that you have a farm, you need water before you can plant carrots. Dig up the land and pour a water bucket into the hole. (Farmland that is 4 blocks or less away from the water source will be irrigated).

Dig hole for water


Now its time to prepare the farmland for the carrot seeds. Take a wooden hoe from your inventory and till the land. You’ll notice the tilled land becomes a dark brown as it begins receiving water.

Prepare farmland


Obtain a carrot from your inventory and you can begin planting it on your tilled farmland. Sit back and wait for your carrots to grow.

Planting in your area

Pro tip: Include torches around the perimeter of your farm so your crops can grow at night as well!
