I collect food from my farms, but I would like to collect as much as possible from them. I have automatic farms on servers that you can sell your items. I was wondering if by adding fortune to a tool would allow me to collect more food.


Yes, but you will only get more:

  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Wheat seeds (only the seeds, not the main crop)
  • Melon slices

So, yes, you will get more food from collecting your crops with Fortune.

  • I was collecting, for example, my crops with a Fortune Pickaxe and they yielded more food. @Jason_

  • Remember — the seeds aren't worthless; even if you don't farm chickens, you can still drop some stacks into a composting hopper to get more bone meal, which is quite generally useful Mar 5 at 23:52

For food from mobs (animals or monsters) you need looting, for food from crops (wheat, carrots, etc) it will in fact work.
