An Organic Farmer operates a farm that does not use chemicals like pesticides or herbicides when producing fruit and vegetables or grain. Organic livestock farmers use only organic feed and don’t use things like hormones or additives when raising their animals. An Organic Farmer will do a range of daily tasks to keep a farm running effectively. You might be planting or harvesting crops, tending to livestock, irrigating your produce or making general repairs around the farm.
Organic Farmers spend most of their day outdoors and you’ll need to work in all sorts of weather conditions. The work is physically demanding and you’ll put in a lot of hours. You’ll need a passion for organic farming and a strong understanding of how to keep your organic certification. Organic Farmers will need to be good with animals if you have livestock and you’ll also have to be ready to work with various farm equipment.
There is one course available for people who want to become an Organic Farmer.
