Iron Ore Farming Method Procedure

|3||Break rocks on the island|
|4||Repeat steps 1-3 the next day|
1. Use Axe Or Shovel To Hit Rocks
Dig Holes Behind Yourself
If you dig 2 holes behind yourself in a formation like the one in the above picture, you'll be able to get 8 hits off quickly without being knocked backwards!
3. Break Rocks After Eating Fruit
After you've eaten any Fruits, you'll be able to break, instead of just hit rocks, when you use your axe or shovel. One rock will respawn per day, so while you don't need to worry, you also shouldn't break all the rocks on your island.Read Here About Rock Respawns In Detail
