Up until this point in development, all levels had been fairly dark and closed in. We wanted to do something different, open, brightly lit farmlands that players could explore.

Minecraft Dungeons Guide Book

The Pumpkin Pastures is the third location in Minecraft Dungeons. This level is unlocked after completing Creeper Woods. Upon loading, there is a chance that a secret is generated that grants access to Arch Haven. If it is available, it will appear in the first half of the level in a ship. It is not necessary to complete Pumpkin Pastures to finish the main story. Captured here in a secret location is the Mystery Merchant.


THE LAST HOMELY HEARTH – The Illager raids have reached the once-quiet fields of Pumpkin Pastures. As the Villagers were dragged off in chains and everything burned, it seemed all was lost. But one village still stands in the chaos. That last homely hearth remains a beacon of hope, but they need our help!

In-game description

The Illager raids have roasted this once lush land to ruin. Only one village remained unspoiled in this corner of the world. Make haste, Hero! You must warn the Villagers there of the battle to come. You are their only hope.

Opening Cinematic

Pumpkin Pastures used to be a prosperous and peaceful land, where pumpkins grow among trees and grassy fields. The villagers mostly live closer to the village center. There were windmills that grounded the farmer's harvests, treasures in the village building, and a village bell that lies at the heart of the village. The Villagers have also constructed a ship by the water's edge in Pumpkin Pastures, where they might have used it to transport large quantities of pumpkins to far-off lands.

The Illagers have raided this fertile land to chaos. Most of the villagers were captured and forced to leave behind their horses and treasures. Only one lone village which somehow remains unspoiled. Heroes need to warn its Villagers of the impending danger marching toward them by ringing the bell. As soon as the bell sounds, the Arch-Illager will appear and summon a horde of dangerous mobs in order to thwart the heroes' progress.

You did it! And the Villagers of the Pumpkin Pastures go on to fight another day.
