Earlier we've looked at starting off in Survival mode, plus simple combat. Now we look at a more refreshing aspect of Minecraft: Food!

Food

Ever since the hunger bar was added to Survival mode, food has tripled in its role. Having no food will slowly decrease your hunger bar and eventually eat into your own health. As covered in "Getting Started", it's one of the most important parts of Minecraft itself.

Types

  • Pork: Obtained from killing pigs. Raw restores 2 hunger bars; cooked restores 4 hunger bars.

Farming

Farming is one of the easiest and most consistent sources of food in Minecraft.

Things to remember: 

  • Wheat can only be planted on Farmland
  • Although seeds planted on hydrated farmland will grow faster than those on non-hydrated blocks, non-hydrated farmland will still grow wheat eventually. 
  • Any source of water must be within 4 blocks for the wheat to grow.

General Growing:

Wheat crops will only grow under the following conditions:

  • If there is at least 9 (light) level above them (not necessarily sunlight).
  • If there is at least one block of space above the height of the fully grown crop (transparent blocks count as empty).

                          Cycle of Wheat growth. Wheat will only return items(wheat, seeds) after it

                          reaches "0x7".

To farm wheat, you first need seeds, which are obtained by destroying wild grass.

A hoe is needed to till the soil.

There are many different ways to harvest wheat, such as using water, or pistons. Here's an example:

Though it says 1.7, I believe it works for 1.0 also.

So explore different ways to farm by yourself! It provides the greatest opportunity for learning.

THE END!
