How to get wheat in Minecraft

The Minecraft Overworld has an abundant amount of wheat that you can get by breaking grass. Tall grass is quite common and drops wheat seeds when you break it. Thereafter, you can make your own wheat farm in Minecraft.

Ruins and Desert House chests also have a high chance of dropping wheat but to be fair, farming is the easiest and most efficient way to get it in the game.
