Colter Bay Village is a small farming village nestled in the mountains of northern New York State.
The community’s small community, which boasts an average of two residents, has been a fixture on Fox Sports’ Minecraft show, “Farm Heroes,” since its inception in 2015.
The village’s members are part of the Farm Heroes Community, which has grown from its small community to more than 20 farms and eight of the 11 members of the farm’s Board of Directors.
“It’s kind of a strange experience for us to have a community of people that really care about farming,” said Adam Johnson, one of the members of Farm Heroes.
“I don’t think there’s a better place to be as a newbie or a new person to farm than to farm in our community.
It’s really easy to get started.
It doesn’t take a lot of time and we’ve done it a few times in the past.”
In fact, one member of the village even had the opportunity to start his own Minecraft farm, but declined.
“We don’t have any experience at all farming in our house,” he said.
“Our house has a whole bunch of things that aren’t farmable.”
One of those things is the local water source.
“The only way we can get water to our crops is to have it at our farms,” Johnson said.
But even with a limited supply of water, Farm Heroes is still making a difference.
“For us, it’s a lot more rewarding to have someone else do the hard work and put in the work,” Johnson continued.
“And it’s kind and fun.
I really like that it’s like that and it’s not like the world of farming.
I think that’s the biggest thing that makes it special.”
While Johnson is an avid Minecraft player, his farm’s members also have a love of the outdoors.
“They like going to the lake and they like hiking and fishing and the like,” said Johnson.
“Those are the kinds of things I really enjoy.
That’s why we started this farm.”
The farm is part of a larger Minecraft community, where members grow a variety of crops, and share their creations on the popular Minecraft community Farm Wars.
For Johnson, it has been an amazing experience.
“Growing crops is fun and I really appreciate the people who do it,” he added.
“There are so many good people that are out there and they really make the world a better and happier place.”
Johnson and his fellow Farm Heroes members have had the pleasure of working with a number of talented Minecraft players.
“As a Minecraft community we are always trying to make it better and we have a lot to learn,” Johnson explained.
“But we have the best of the best and it has given us a lot.”
