Where to Get Brown Mushrooms in Minecraft

Like many things in Minecraft, there’s a good handful of ways to secure some Brown Mushrooms. The most common way is by finding a giant brown mushroom and breaking its blocks. These can be found either in Mooshroom biomes or scattered across Dark Oak forests. Breaking these blocks without a silk touch tool can yield a few Brown Mushrooms for yourself. Other ways include finding them in caves naturally, trading for them at a Wandering Trader, or shearing a Brown Mooshroom (though it’ll turn into a Cow if you do this).

As for its uses, Brown Mushrooms are used in several recipes. They can be used to help create Fermented Spider Eyes, Mushroom Stew, Rabbit Stew, and Suspicious Stew. It can also be turned into a giant Brown Mushroom with bonemeal, making a renewable source. Finally, it can be used in a Composter to make more bonemeal. Otherwise, it can make for a nice little decoration when placed in a Flower Pot.
