Even in survival mode, Minecraft gives you tremendous control over your world. You can grow forests, blow up mountains, enter new universes – there’s not much you can’t do. You also have control over the game’s NPCs.

If you want to make more villagers without having to wander around to find a new village, you can find villagers together. It may sound strange, but it is an efficient way to increase the population of a city, or even build your own city. Here’s how to breed villagers in Minecraft, either manually or with an automatic breeder.

Benefits of Breeding Minecraft Villagers

Here are some endless benefits of breeding villagers in Minecraft:

  • Villagers in a specific area automatically spawn Iron Golems
  • Different types of villagers can help you get different types of business deals (as well as discounts).
  • If you have enough farmers, you can create more than one automated food farm
  • Villagers like the Librarian can provide rare items such as Enchanted Books, which you can use for the Best Sword Spells, Best Trident Spells, and more.
  • Aesthetically, your base can be more colorful and active with villagers

Why Are Minecraft Villagers Not Breeding?

Maybe the Minecraft villagers are not breeding because you haven’t provided proper food, housing or privacy in the house. Villagers need privacy and plenty of food to breed so they can enter love mode.

In Minecraft, you can’t just feed villagers by wishing them to breed. You also need to provide a place for living and a bed. And the whole process is explained below
