Farming refers to the systematic production of Renewable resource. It is usually used to get Blocks, Food, Experience and more things. Specific types of farming include:
 Mob Farming
- Using wheat, seeds, and carrots to breed animals, to be slaughtered for their products or used in Egg, Milk, or Wool Farming.
- Creating spawn rooms for hostile mobs, to be killed for their drops.
- Farming Villagers by creating houses, doors, or curing spawned Villager Zombies.
 Experience Farming
- Waiting at an active monster spawner for monsters to spawn. This includes mobs that do not spawn naturally without the use of spawners, notably Cave Spiders.
- Covering the dimension of The End in half-slabs except a small area to allow Endermen to spawn. It is recommended that you defeat the Enderdragon first, making the task permanent and allowing you a way out. Surround the area that endermen will spawn in end stone except a 1 block area at the feet so they can be killed. It goes best with an enchanting room with 15 bookcases for level 30 enchantments.
