Food is a necessity in the world of Minecraft, allowing you to feed your character and keep exploring the world. No matter the source, a steady amount of food must be farmed to keep up with the demand, especially when playing with others. This can become tedious at times, as there are so many items to locate and farm, especially when adding other food mods. Introducing Farming for Blockheads, a Minecraft mod that aims to streamline the farming process for both plants and animals. Whether it is automatically feeding your mobs, upgrading your farmland, or purchasing seeds from anywhere, this mod simplifies the overall experience. This is made even easier with the Apex Hosting panel, which allows you to quickly upload mods to your server. With this in mind, we have created this tutorial to help you get started in your farming adventures.
