How to get Wheat in Minecraft

Intro


Of all the crop items that you can acquire in Minecraft, wheat is among some of the first and most versatile that you can get.


wheat is among some of the first and most versatile that you can get. 


Not only can it be made to create a cheap and easy access food item, but it can also be used as a pathway to other food items that you would desire and can fill a greater amount of saturation. Here in this article, we shall discuss how to obtain wheat and what it can be used for.


How to acquire Wheat in Minecraft:


In a Nutshell:


To get Wheat in Minecraft. Find Land with Water. First, you need to find an area of land that has water. Hold a Hoe. Next, you need to select a hoe in the hotbar so that you are holding it in your hand. Then Hoe the Land, plant the seeds, fertilize it with Bonemeal. Finally, harvest the Wheat and pick up the Wheat.


When it comes to actually acquire wheat you have different paths to choose from in terms of reliable sources. The first and one of the easiest avenues before you is through breaking grass blocks. Almost all types of grass blocks will have a chance of dropping at least one wheat seed that can be used to your discretion.

Another source is from wheat itself, which if fully grown can give you at least three wheat seeds to use, increasing the amount of crops that you can grow per yield if you are smart and patient with your harvests. If you want to skip growing it entirely and waiting patiently for yourself to grow more, you can go to farmer villagers and trade for wheat itself instead.


A novice farmer will have a twenty-five percent chance of carrying wheat in their inventory for trade and will give you twenty units of wheat for a single emerald. Wandering traders will sell wheat seeds as well if they are available so keep your eyes peeled for them if they are in your vicinity.


Livestock Effects


When it comes to handling farm animals, wheat can be used to herd cows, mushrooms, sheep, and goats. When holding the item in front of them, they will follow you because wheat can be fed to them like a food item.


Livestock Effects


When it is fed to the aforementioned animals, it can help accelerate the breeding and assist in the growth of baby animals if enough units of wheat are given to them. If you have a livestock farm, having a wheat farm is a must to increase the output, yield, and potential of your farm.


Food


Finally, we come to one of the main uses of wheat itself: Food. Below is a list of items that you can create with the crop and what other items you will need to finish the food selection:


  1. Bread: 3 units of Wheat
  2. Cake: 3 buckets of milk, 2 units of sugar, 3 units of wheat, 1 egg
  3. Cookie: 2 units of wheat, 1 unit of cocoa beans


Conclusion


Without wheat, your ability to have your own self-sustaining base of operations is going to be extremely difficult without such a valuable crop. It can function as both a source of food as well as a useful tool in managing your herd of animals that are a part of your livestock. It’s so versatile that it can even heal horses and llamas if fed to them! Be sure to take advantage of such a useful crop in survival or you’ll definitely be filled with regrets.
