In the base game, Minecraft encourages players to farm and become self-sustaining. However, it can get quite boring to keep planting the same crops over and over again. That’s where this list of Forge farming or food mods come in!

This guide will go through mods available for Minecraft Fabric that adds either new crops, food, or farming mechanics to Minecraft. While most add a multitude of new culinary treats, there is one mod below that lets you create your own custom food items. So whether you’re hosting a survival multiplayer server or you’re playing alone, you’ll find a mod that opens up your world even more!

Note that the game versions available may change since the time of publishing. Most photos were taken using BSL Shaders and Optifine in 1.16.5.

1 – AppleSkin

By squeek502

Game Versions: 1.12, 1.14, 1.5, 1.16, 1.17

By default, hunger and saturation is hidden, but with AppleSkin that changes. The main features of this mod are the addition of food value information to tooltips and visualization of saturation, hunger, and exhaustion on the player HUD.

2 – Croptopia


By thethonk

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

If you’d like to add more farming to the world but don’t want to include a multi-file mod (see below), then try Croptopia. This mod adds over 200 new food items, plus plantable crops and trees. Paired with the Patchouli mod, your server can also have a recipe book for their culinary adventures!

3 – Mystical Agriculture: Refabricated

By AlexSa1000

Game Version: 1.16

Have you ever needed a resource but just didn’t want to have to go mining for it? That’s where Mystical Agriculture comes in. Now you can just grow resources with crops! This mod adds a bunch of resource crops, tools, armor, and fun blocks to add a unique mechanic to Minecraft. It even integrates with other mods like Applied Energistics 2, Industrial Revolution, Tech Reborn, and more!

4 – Plant In A Jar

By cool_mineman

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

As the name implies, this mod allows you to grow any Minecraft plant inside a 1x1x1 jar. While it might not appear to have practical use, you can use them to farm for resources. Plus, it makes for fantastic decoration in a build!

5 – Sandwichable


By FoundationGames

Game Versions: 1.15, 1.16

This is a mod that does more than you’d think based on the name. While, yes, you can create your own sandwiches (and make them as tall as you want), it also adds multiple new food mechanics to Minecraft. You can make cheese, use a toaster, extract salt from ocean water, and even make pickles! Sandwichable is a great mod to add to a multiplayer server or a singleplayer world!

6 – Croptosis

By LordDeatHunter

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

While singleplayer worlds allow players to speed up crop growth via tick speed, that’s not possible in a multiplayer world. Croptosis adds four new fertilizers and fertilized variants of dirt, farmland, and sand, that help crops grow 2x the normal rate.

7 – Farmer’s Delight

By NewHoryzon

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

If you’re a farmer who prefers the vanilla game experience, but also crave slight variety, then Farmer’s Delight is for you. This mod expands on Minecraft’s farming and food items with the addition of more meals, a way to improve soil, and even some gear to help with adventuring!

8 – Improved Hoes

By Furgle

Game Versions: 1.12, 1.16, 1.17

One of my biggest pet peeve with hoes is that even if you upgrade them, they don’t really do much. Improved Hoes fixes that by making farming with hoes quicker and easier. Each type of hoe has a tiered range of blocks that it can till, harvest, and (for some) replant crops!

9 – TacoCraft

By ffrannny

Game Versions: 1.15, 1.16, 1.17

Who doesn’t love a good taco? Now you can make one inside Minecraft! With over ten variations of tacos to try and the crops to make them, TacoCraft is a great food addition to any game.

10 – Ignis Fatuus

By cool_minerman

Game Versions: 1.16, 1.17

While this can’t be fully considered a farming mod, it fits the aesthetic enough to be on this list. It’s a simple-to-use mod that allows players to carve their own pumpkins into any design they can dream up!
