Raid farming is a means to obtain items dropped by raid mobs (pillagers, vindicators, witches, evokers, and ravagers). Farms can be made from a village with a spawning platform for the raiders, or be made at a pillager outpost. In Bedrock Edition, a raid farm also yields special items dropped by these mobs during raids: emeralds, enchanted books, iron tools, and iron armor (of which half have enchantments). In Java Edition, getting Hero of the Village has the additional benefit of making some resources renewable, especially clay.


Broadly the components of a raid farm are:

  • a village (1 bed and 1 villager are sufficient)
  • a surface on which the raid is forced to spawn (the ground, or an isolated surface above)
  • a way to funnel or guide the raid mobs
  • a killing area; that is, mob grinder to kill the mobs, or a holding area for the player to kill them and earn experience as well as loot.
  • a way to get Bad Omen again, so that the next raid can start:

Video example[edit]

This is a basic raid farm that can be built early in the game with minimal basic materials; it works in both Bedrock and Java editions.
