A Day in the Life of a Farmer

Jul 11, 2018Blog

Have you ever wondered how each people’s day unfolds?

From the rising of the sun until the set of the day, farmers live a very hectic but very exciting and fulfilling life.

In a single day, farmers conduct a variety of activities, from planting, watering plants, hoeing, harvesting, and a lot more. Follow me as I take you along a day in the life of a farmer.

Rise and Shine!

A day in the life of a farmer starts very early, at 5:30 in the morning; everyone is expected to be on the farm to begin preparing for the day’s task. If the weather is a bit sunnier than the average, it is best to dresses appropriately for the weather to avoid any difficulties while working on the farm.

Once everyone is ready, they all start to move quickly to get the tasks over with. In most farms, they like to divide the entire crew into teams depending on their assigned tasks, for example; harvesting teams work together to pick up harvests, sort them together, and fill their daily orders.

Harvesting starts first thing in the morning, and then the rest of the tasks can follow. In a farm with a large crew, multitasking is a very common occurrence. There’s the washing station where farmers clean their produce and pack them in the cooler, other people may start and prepare for their day’s planting while some can already start hoeing and tilling the soil.

Farmers use various farm equipments to aid them in their tasks for the day. A disk harrow is commonly used by farmers to till the soil, this is very essential since this is the very first thing to do when planting in a farm.

Noonbreaks in the Farm

When it’s already noontime, all the farmers take a break for their lunch. Every single one of them is tired from the morning’s work and will need this break to properly function for the rest of the day.

The end of a day in the life of a farmer

After lunch, everyone’s starts to gather seedlings from their greenhouse and begins planting them. A tractor-pulled transplanter is a very important farm equipment during planting since it reduces time when planting, what usually takes a half day of planting only takes an hour thanks to this farm equipment.

For more information about common farm machines, see our previous blog entry here. At the end of the day, the farm crew gathers together and finishes their end of the day chores like collecting eggs from the chicken coops, closing the greenhouses, putting tools away, cleaning up, and other tasks that signal their end of the day.
