Exploring Low Wage Work in the Farming Industry
MetadataShow full item record
Frame, Stuart P.
Farm work encompasses a variety of different jobs. When I worked for a farmer and farm market owner in Rochester, my tasks ranged from picking corn and berries to sell in the market, hoeing weeds in the pumpkin patch, and irrigating and helping plow the fields and maintaining the orchards. I very much enjoyed, as did my interview contact, certain aspects of farm work. It is very fulfilling to spend the day working outside with one’s hands. The variety of tasks that a farmer engages in from day to day also helps to keep the job fresh and engaging.
