We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Wheat is an item primarily obtained by farming.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Wheat can be found in 35.3% of dungeon chests and 35.3% of woodland mansion chests in stacks of 1–4, in 57.9% of igloo chests in stacks of 2–3, and in 93.7% of village two-room house chests in stacks of 8–12.

Farming[edit | edit source]

When a fully grown wheat crop is harvested, it will drop 1 wheat and 0 to 3 seeds. The wheat crop has a total of eight stages from the time it is planted until it can be harvested. If the crop is harvested before it is fully grown, it will only drop seed(s).

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Ingredients Crafting recipe
Hay Bale


Usage[edit | edit source]

Food[edit | edit source]

Holding wheat in your hand causes cows, sheep, and mooshrooms that are close by to follow you, until you stop holding the wheat or create too large a distance between them, thus leading them to lose interest.

Wheat may be used to breed cows, sheep, and mooshrooms by first herding two of them together and then using the wheat on them to begin "Love Mode."

Wheat can heal a horse 1 (Half Heart.svg) health or lower its temper by 3% when attempting to tame it. It can also decrease the time it takes for a foal to grow by 20 seconds.
