Where do I get the villagers to start off an iron farm

I am building an iron farm and have almost completed it, when it struck me!
Where do I get the villagers from?
The simple answer is, go off and find a village, but I don’t really want to be wandering around for miles looking for a village, then have to take them back by some means.

What I was wandering was, is there an easier way?

  • How to get back to original spawn when in creative and spawn resets?
  • Condensed Mob Names in Scoreboard
  • Minecraft crashes on launch with EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION, Problematic frame: ig4dev32.dll or ig4dev64.dll or ig4icd32.dll or ig4icd64.dll
  • Where can I find chests in Woodland Mansions, and what can I find in them?
  • In my first game I spawned on a small island. What do I do next?
  • Can I transfer Minecraft from a computer to iOS?

    Just wait around at night time for Zombie Villagers. Then cure them. You need to find two to get a breeding pair.

    So you need

    • two splash potions of weakness
      • 2 bottles
      • water
      • netherwart
      • fermented spider eye
      • brown mushroom
      • spider eye
      • sugar
      • gunpowder
    • two golden apples
      • 2 regular apples plus 18 bars of gold
    • patience to wait around at night long enough to find zombie villagers

    Once you find a zombie villager, you will want to trap him in a cage and put a roof over him, so he doesn’t die before he is done being cured. Once he is trapped hit him with the weakness potion, wait, and make sure that you hit me by the potion effect animation. Then feed him the golden apple. Then wait.

    Since you have to be out at night you need a nice open area where monsters can spawn. You will probably also need some equipment to kill the mobs you aren’t interested in. With a little luck you can usually corral a couple in 2-3 night cycles.
