Organic Farmers

Work Environment

Farmers work from dawn to dusk, rain or shine, and will work even longer hours during plantings and harvestings. If they run a small farm with few staff members, more of the responsibilities will fall to them, making for longer days and little, if any, time off. Much of their day is spent outside working the land, but they also spend some time indoors addressing the administrative side of the business, which can include conducting Internet research and reviewing and paying bills, among other tasks. They may spend some time traveling to participate in farmers' markets, conferences, and workshops.
