Welcome to Extended Farming!
Extended Farming is a new mod that enchances the farming aspect of Minecraft. I have always found it boring that there are so few crops in Minecraft. This mod will change that, pluss provide new farming tools like a watering system and other machines.

  • New Food:
    • Roasted Beans
    • Roasted Peppers
    • Roasted Carrots
    • Baked Peas

  • Blocks to support crops while growing
    • Bamboo Sticks
    • Nets

The mod is still beeing worked on and more features will be added every few weeks. 
Current planned features
These are just new ideas I have to improve the mod, even though it is listed here, does not mean it will 100% sure be added. 

  • More crops
  • Plates with food, made with the new crops
  • Greenhouse
  • Mobs
  • Fruit trees
  • Spices
  • Fertilizer
  • And more stuff you guys think of

So what is in the mod?
The mod contains a few blocks and items. We'll look at them here:

The Blocks
What would a farming mod be without new crops?! So therefor this mod also adds new crops. Most of them will grow just like vanilla crops, while others will require more work. The mod will add common vegetables, but also more unknown crops and spices. The currently added crops are:

Beans are a common crop. They only require the support of bamboo sticks and will, like vanilla crops, grow in 4 stages: Seed, little plant, purple flowers, beans! Once harvested you will get some beans and some beans seeds. A bean can also be crafted into 2 bean seeds. 


Peas are common crops, which seeds can be found in village chests. They require Bamboo sticks and nets to grow. When harvested they will drop Peas and pea seeds. Peas can be crafted into 2 Pea seeds. They grow in 4 stages with yellow flowers. 


Chilli Peppers:
Chilli Peppers are a bit more rare than peas. They are found in Jungle Temples and require Bamboo stick as support. They grow similair to bean and will drop Chilli Peppers. These can be crafted into two seeds. 

Sugar Beets:
Sugar Beets are a more effiecient way to gather sugar. They grow similair to carrots, and when harvested one sugar beet can be crafted into 2 sugar. The beets can be planted on both farmland and in the nether, but have no special nether drop. You will need to find some dungeons to obtain them. 
Beets grow similair to Sugar Beets, and when harvested it will drop a beet. In the Nether it will even drop a Roasted Beet. You can use 6 Roasted Beets to craft yourself a BeetSoup, similair to the one in Minecraft PE. You will need to find some dungeons to obtain them. 

Those are the blocks, now lets take a look at all the items:
The Items
Extended Farming Items:
Extended Farming also adds new Items to the game. There aren't many of them, but they are important. Most items will be food or seeds. 

Crop Support Items:
These Items are required by some crops for them to grow. Currently added crop support items:
  • Bamboo Sticks
  • Nets

Most food is harvested directly from crops, but in later updates I will also add complete meals with meat and vegetables. Currently added food:
  • Beans
  • Peas
  • Chilli Peppers
  • Sugar Beets
  • Beets

  • Roasted Beans
  • Baked Peas
  • Roasted Peppers
  • Roasted Carrots
  • Roasted Beets

All are harvested from their own crops and cooked(Or harvested in the nether, with a lava sprinkler system)

Craftable meals:

There aren't many yet but here is the list:
  • Beet Soup, Crafted with 6 Roasted Beets above a bowl.

Not much to explain here. Most seeds are found in vanilla generated chests, like villages, temples, mineshafts and the bonus chest at startup. All seeds can also be crafted using their crops.

Currently added seeds with location:
  • Bean Seeds, in villages
  • Pea Seeds, in villages

Extended Farming also add a few new tools to the game. These are all special tools, that are used for farming. 

Quartz Hoe:
This special hoe is made using quartz, and can only be used on Soul Sand. It will turn it into farmable Soul Sand. It has about the same strength as iron, ca. 200 uses. 

Tractors are very usefull machines while farming! They make big tasks like plowing your fields easy. Just craft yourself a tractor, fill it with coal and attach a plow. Then you drive over the field and watch the plow do all the hard work. Even though the tractor is a bit expensive, and definitly a mid-late game machine, it will revolutionize your farming experience!

Tractors, how do they work?

First of all you will have to craft yourself a tractor, just look below for recipes. After you have crafted yourself a tractor, simply place it down by right clicking. It will now remember you as the owner. 

The tractor now only responds to you, and no other players, so there is no stealing other peoples tractors or attachments. To drive the tractor, you will have to add fuel to it. Simply right click while holding coal to add fuel. Now that it recognizes you, and has fuel, its time to start driving! To get on the tractor, you just right click the chair part. And you drive with the wasd keys and your mouse. 

Every tractor also has its own little inventory, usefull for storing seeds and tools, but also your attachments.

With these items you can make your tractor do hard work for you.

The Plow:
As the name suggests, this attachment will make the tractor plow the field for you. This can save you a lot of time since you no longer have to right click each block with a hoe. To attach the plow, Shift+right click the back of the tractor while holding a plow. After plowing, you will have to take the plow of again, do so by shift+right clicking while holding a wrench. The plow will also remove tall grass during the plowing. Newly plowed soil will be a bit moist, so you have a little time to plant stuff before it turns back into dirt. 

The Mowdeck:
The mowdeck is basicly a lawnmower. You can use it to easily get rid of tall grass and flowers. Just like the plow, it is attached by shift + right clicking. You can only have one attachment at the time, but they are easily switched out using the wrench. 

The Tractor Sprinkler:
This is a more mobile version of a sprinkler. Just fill up the tractor with water by Shift+right clicking while holding a bucket of water, and attach the sprinkler to the tractor. When you drive across dry farmland it will water it and it stays wet for quite a while!

The Tractor Seeder:
Using this attachment, you can plant a lot of seeds really fast! The seeder can be used for all crops that don't require support blocks: Wheat, Potatoes, Carrots, Sugar Beets, Beets. Simply add some of the seeds/crops in the Tractor inventory, and drive over farmland with the seeder attached!

The Harvester:
Harvest all crops that don't require support blocks, by simply driving over them! It will drop the items, ready for you to pick them up. It will only harvest fully grown crops, not the ones that still need some time to get ready!

Enough chit-chat, lets take a look on how to make one:
You will need a bunch of parts to get a tractor:

  1. 4 Wheels, crafted into 2 driveshafts
  2. A body
  3. An engine
  4. A chair
  5. A SteeringWheel
  6. A Chest

Underneath are screenshots of all the recipes, so you better start mining iron :P

Extended Farming also adds animals to the game. There are few of them at the moment, but more will be added. There will be farmable animals, which you can use as a resource for food or materials, but also less usefull animals like moles and rats. These are the currently added animals:

Goats are mainly there for that farming feel and some food. They can be milked with a bucket, to obtain Goatmilk. This has the same effect as regular milk, for now. When killed, a goat will drop some goat meat, which you then can roast in a furnace. It also has a minor chance of dropping some white wool. 

Goats are very stubborn, but will follow you around if you hold a carrot. If you feed two goats a carrot each, they will make a baby goat :D

A lot of showcases :D Thank you everyone!





#6, Spanish or something :p:



I really hope you will enjoy this mod! Feel free to leave feedback in the comments below and remember to leave a diamond. Bugs and glitches can be reported here, on my site, or in a tweet and I will solve them as fast as I can. Also leave suggestions to new crops and features and Ill add them to the planned list!

Awesome mod. Just one problem. It messes around with Galacticraft blocks. Since I installed this mod the sealable Kinesis pipe block wont connect to pipes and wont place on first click. I can live without that block. lol. Thanks for the awesome work.

This is a really good mod - diamond for you! You should update this one rather than Lots O Mobs in my opinion, I think it's a much better, more creative mod with more potential. I just have one problem - the goats do not spawn. At least put in a spawner egg for them please.
Glad you like it. The problem is that this mod is more complex as well. LotsOMobs is my first mod, and it mainly consists of simple features. I learned modding with it. Once I understood the basics I could make something more complex. So therefor I try to use LotsOMobs for learning 1.9 before I get into Extended Farming. But at the moment Mojang kinda ruined modding, and I also have limited free time. So little has been done

Hey buddy! I thought I would reccomend some things for the tractors. 

1. An option to make it so that people on your team can use your tractors too

2. Ability to run over enemies with tractor (This wouldn't be that hard to make at all, just check that the entity hit is not the driver, and multiply the damage by the speed)

Any plans for 1.8? This is a truly fantastic mod!

EDIT: Just looked through the comments to find out I posted the same thing a while ago........ ^-^'
Great Mod!!!

I have a Question:

when I ride with the mower, the seeds will drop in the inventory ?
The seeds are destroyed by the mower :(
You need to add a fertilizer attachment for the tractor!  Using Bonemeal from the Tractor's storage
Add corn as a food and crop!

I have a question do have the map from Atlantic craft I would love to look at it
Wow, cool this mod should be more popular
this looks like a cool mod i for one will be downloading it and trying it but from what i got from the info on this page, the sprinklers(water) is kind of pointless .... other then looks cuz mc already has it so 1 water block in the center of a 9x9 area has full effect, what im saying mc on its own has water blocks water farmland up to 4 blocks away. On that note i myself take advantage of this and build 9x9 farmlands ontop of one another as it is and use the center water block as a elevator going up and down.
again what i just said is not hating on the mod just pointing out that it might need the range of it extended it from being 9x9 to at least 11x11 range to be of better use then normal MC workings.

but everything els in the mod seems like it is of great use, great work on it
Completly forgot about that... I might oncrease the range or something, but Ill think of a solution for sure
Somebody needs to port this to 1.8. This is perfect! :D

There the cutest things ever ;-;
I got an improvement idea: The sprinklers should put out fires surrounding them, when powered. Then I could use it for an airfield, I built. Another cool thing would be if you could place them on vertical walls and ceilings. I mean then you could build a farm without wasting the space for putting down the sprinklers, they would just hang there and water the plants. Also this would be nice for a fire sprinkler system.
I can add the feature to put out fires for sure. The wall mounted sprinkler sounds pretty cool too, but will have to wait a while, because Im really busy with school. But Ill add it on my to-do list
THanks for your Reply! Good luck in school!
Crashes on start please help i also posted on official website
fixed had to downgrade to java 7
Hmmm... I will look into that

One thing I think would be nice in this mod is a ranch hand for hire, that can drive the tractor.
It is not very likely that I will make that. I don't want this mod to turn into another automation mod
Thank you for the harvester and planter, but could you make the harvester a self-propelled harvester in the next update, thanks
Im not going to make automatic machines, I find those boring...
No I mean you could drive -for example- one of these not make the harvester do the work for you.

Being a fan of farming simulator this is pretty cool, diamond for you sir.
One more thing I think you need to add: A button that you press to lift up the plow, sprinkler, etc.
