Of all the mobs in Minecraft, villagers are perhaps some of the most unique and useful, so we'll see how to breed them. They are arguably the most complicated mob in the game to successfully breed, so this guide will aim to simplify things a bit so you can be one of the successful ones. Before you begin, be prepared to spend a lot of resources on this endeavor.
How to raise villagers
The first thing you need to know about breeding villagers is that there is a soft limit to the number of baby villagers they can make, which is based on the number of beds in the village. To put it simply, there must be an open bed in the village/area where you plan to raise them. An open bed must be accessible by villagers to be valid, this means there must be open blocks above the bed and they must be able to access them. Filling an open room with a bunch of beds can satisfy this condition as long as you can walk to each one. Once there are no more open beds, they will no longer be willing to breed.
Once the village area is prepared with beds, you will need to ensure that the villagers in question have food in their inventories. They must have either 3 pieces of bread, 12 carrots, 12 potatoes, or 12 beets to meet this requirement. Once that's done, the next step is unfortunately completely based on luck. Once all the conditions are met, villagers will randomly enter mating mode after a while and produce babies. This will also consume the food they had, so they will need more if you want them to continue spawning.
