In this article of my beginners guide, I will show you how to build a simple sugarcane farm. A component used to make books and bookshelves and then used with an enchanting.
- Let's start with the farm, dig out a trench of 10 blocks.
- Place your pistons facing towards the trench.
- Place your observers facing the same way.
- Place a row of building blocks behind the pistons and place a row of Redstone dust on top of it to connect it all together so all pistons will fire at the same time.
- Now dig another trench 2 blocks deep right below the pistons.
- Fill it with water and then cover it back up with a layer of dirt.
- Plant your sugarcane and then box up the outside of the farm. I personally like to use glass as it makes it look a lot better and easier to see what is happening inside the farm.
- The automatic collection system: In this case, it's very simple and for each cart, there is a powered rail on each end, which is powered by a Redstone torch.
- On this side, we have some chests with a hopper going into it and this hopper collects the sugarcane from inside the minecart.
