The Agricultural Revolution



The Agricultural Revolution is a mod primarily focusing on giving the player a wider variety of food stuffs, and some additional cooking appliances for processing these new foods to make them more beneficial to the player. There is also an additional buff (with lots more planned) and other bits and pieces to make the Minecraft cooking and farming experience more realistic.


WARNING: if you are planning on updating the mod from 0.8.9 or before to 0.9 it will not work on old worlds
