Who is a Farm Worker?

Farm workers are those who assist with the production of crops and livestock on farms (aka agricultural labourers). They are primarily hired on a seasonal basis and usually work long hours with little or no days off during their period of employment.

The job requires hard physical labour as well as a lot of physical risks that come with living closely to livestock such as pests and toxins. Farm work is quite demanding both physically and mentally, but is not just any job: it is an opportunity to contribute to a sustainable lifestyle.
