    Before you dismiss this as another n00by "HOW U MAK MONEE!???!" post,

    How do you make real money? I own a cocoa farm that yields around 2,500 ECD per harvesting. And it is quite a long harvesting, spanning from 15 to 20 minutes. I try to refrain from diamond tools due to cost; preferably, I use a stone axe that I freely craft in the wild.

    Then, I hear people having farms that produce 20K an hour....

    20K AN HOUR! Holy shmoly! How the heck do you get that dough?

    20k/hour is like the max number players can make from farming or mining with star tools such as a melon sword or eff 7 pick.

    I have a coco farm that is 100x100x29 it can produce $140k+/harvest but it takes some time to replant... a long time but its worth the trouble at the end :p

    I usually find that making a completely horizontal farm is best, 1x4x30+. You grab a diamond axe and just charge straight through those ripe cocoa fruits. It's the replanting that gets you.

    There is a cocoa farm I have access to that I can make just over 10k/hr on a regular basis (includes replanting/regrowing), so your numbers are pretty much in line with the norm.
