A Farmer runs a primary production business producing goods for sale to market. You might be employed in a range of farming industries including livestock, fruit and vegetables, crops or dairy products. Farmers are involved with all aspects of operations from planting and cultivating to harvesting and getting products ready for sale. Your daily work will vary but might involve operating farm machinery, maintaining equipment, irrigating and fertilising, monitoring the health of livestock or liaising with customers.
Being a Farmer is a physically demanding role and you’ll need to be capable of all kinds of manual labour. You’ll spend most of your time outdoors and have to work in a range of weather conditions. Farmers need to be flexible and should be able to handle a range of different tasks during their day. It’s important that you can plan ahead and work with changing weather conditions and market demands.
