I first saw this concept on a YouTube video Mumbo Jumbo, Frilioth, and others. But these designs are villager based designs and I just can't keep those pesky villagers to stay put. So... I decided to take a more semi-automated approach. Something that was a little easier to do in SMP and could evolve as the player's fortunes grow. Quite honestly, you only ever need so many Beetroots...

The system is still manually planted, but has a convenient water harvesting mechanism, and can easily scale to what configuration you want. It can funnel the entire harvest into our modular sorting system, which in turn is designed to sit on top of an item retrieval system. The system includes a stackable module for every type of crop (only limited by how tall you want to make it) as well as the different animal.

The animal farm modules are an integration of several youtube artists work. I may remove or redesign the animal farm module. Currently, it is installed in Digger's World as a separate machine and not part of the main farm. But, we don't really use it.

It was an exercise in could I... and we do use it in our SMP world.

"It was an exercise in could I.."
Always a vailid reason… :D

That said, monoculture farming is needed for villager-tech; if one goes with manual planting, intercropping (growing crops in rows with DIS-similar crops adjacent) will increase the yield from a given footprint [qv. https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Tutorials/Crop_farming#Growth_rate ] as will manual harvesting with a fortune tool (carrots, potatoes, and netherwart only – avoid for wheat & beets except in the unlikely event one needs the seeds; silk touch axe recommended for melons).

The stacked version does have a small footprint for what it contains and would make a nice focal point for a base, but my inclination is to favor the higher effeciency.

If one is space constrained (as on a land-claim or small plot server), adding a small tree farm on the roof seems like it might be a useful addition….
