How To Build an Efficient Iron Farm Tutorial | Minecraft Java 1.16 (The Nether Update)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Iron farms in Minecraft 1.16 – The Nether Update (Java Edition) have changed. In this tutorial I show you 3 different iron farm designs, each with their own pros and cons. We also walk through all the details of how iron farms work so you can create your very own design. One of these iron farms could be the most efficient iron farm possible in 1.16. If you want a simple design that’s good enough for most players or would like to push the boundaries, I have the information and designs for you. Why not try to design your own iron farm and be as inventive as you can?

🚨 1.16.2 Update: 🚨

Iron Farm Update in 1.16.2: The designs shown in the tutorial still work fine in 1.16.2 but you may find that when the villagers wake up they just stand on their beds rather than going back to the normal block they all stand on. I’ve just tested it and it seems the easiest fix is to add a glass block above the pillow end of each bed leaving an air block between the bed and the glass. That makes that spot invalid for villagers when they wake up. The method I used was to block the line of sight of the mob that is scaring the villagers so they can sleep at night time. When they are all in their beds, add the blocks and when they wake up they all go to the normal spot. I’m also seeing reports of golems not going through the portals in 1.16.2. It seems there were some changes to portals and how they link in this version. I need to do some testing to see what the best fix for this is. Hope that helps. There are various bug reports about portal linking in 1.16.2 and so for now I’d advise not making the portal based farm.

    Me: Builds the most efficient iron farm.
    My friend: *joins server*
    Also my friend: Where is all the obsidian?!
    Me: Gone, reduced to atoms…

    Hi, I built the second farm design, and it was only working at night in my survival world. I then tested it using the world download and it still only works at night.

    Can anyone explain this? Did iron farms change in the 1.16.4 update?

    I’m planning on trying to figure out carpet mod so I can see what might be wrong, but I haven’t gotten to that yet.

    Bro this video is so helpful

    I think one thing you missed is the minimum area required to spawn a golem. I don't know for sure but it's 2×1. If we can make a small spawning platform, we can push the golem into the lava faster.

    If you add magma blocks under the lava, does that increase the rate at which the golem dies?

    Does this work for 1.16.4

    The explanation of spawning mechanics is so useful when you want to build a building around the farm without getting to close to the villagers so iron golems will spawn. Thank you!!

    on the second one, you didnt show the collection system

  12. IgnitingStone January 24, 2021 at 12:01 pm - Reply

    Could you add nether portals to the first design and kill the golems in the nether?

    Awesome vid and great explanations!

    On design 2, from my testing pacifying the pillager is unnecessary. He will just bob up and down and not shoot, probably because his line of sight keeps getting broken.

    does this work in 1.16.5?

    Villagers can sleep in the nether? Unfair

  17. Prakhar Rathore January 24, 2021 at 12:01 pm - Reply

    Will this work on 1.16.4 since villagers need to sleep, and how will they do it in nether?

  18. Callum Bradford January 24, 2021 at 12:01 pm - Reply

    Does this work on the nether roof? I assume yeah?

    I mined out all that obsidian and placed it down before realizing that the third build doesn't work anymore… 6 hours wasted.

    My friend killed the pillager without realising it was pacified…. So the next time I spawned the pillager (with crossbow), it didn't kill my villagers cause it was too far away from the villagers to be in the range of attack maybe. (Design used…. Similar to 2nd)

  25. Justin McReynolds January 24, 2021 at 12:01 pm - Reply

    Ok, 2 questions, 1. Can you use a cauldron of water (since water cauldrons work in the nether) to bob the enemy up and down?

    2. Does it have to be a pillager? Can you use a Zombie, or Piglin?

  26. Luca Manzonetto January 24, 2021 at 12:01 pm - Reply

    Does the last design work if you are on top of the nether?

  27. Chewbacca4Days January 24, 2021 at 12:01 pm - Reply

    for the first design if u show all the villigers a zombie at the same time will they all spawn a golum.
