Dear farmers of reddit,
I hope this message finds you well. My name is SnuifDuif, and I am a Dutch high school student working on an assignment for school. Specifically, I am doing an assignment on starting a farm in another country, and I hope that you guys could help me with that. The question I am asking you is:
How does farming work in your country? Is it difficult to start a farm in a different country? How did you manage to do it? What was the process of starting the farm? And are there any (major) differences with farming in the country you moved away from? If you said yes to the last question? what are those differences?
If you did not start a farm in another country, it would be really helpful if you could answer the next few questions:
How does farming work in your country? Is it difficult to start a farm in your country? How did you manage to do it? What is the process of starting a farm in your country? Are there any (major) differences with farming in your country with other countries in the world? If you said yes to the last question, what are those differences?
I understand that your time is valuable, and I would be really grateful for you to answer these questions. Thank you for considering my request, and I look forward to hearing from you.
With sincere gratitude, SnuifDuif
I'm working on an audio/animation project and am looking for people willing to share some memorable (good or bad) work stories. I figured if anyone would have some memorable moments it would be farmers so if anyone has any stories they want to share PM me. (can keep everything completely anyone if that's preferred as well)
We are five Electrical and Electronic Masters students from Queens University Belfast, and we would appreciate some help from any sheep farmers.
We have come up with a product EweAlert that is a wearable device with advanced sensors paired with an app. It monitors key metrics like body temperature, ECG, movement patterns, and contractions in ewes approaching labour. It will mean timely notifications when the signs of labour are detected.
Now, here's where your expertise comes in! We're conducting a survey to gather insights that will refine our solution. We would appreciate responses from any farmers with sheep. Your input is priceless, and we'd love for you to take a moment to participate.

What is the average price per MT I can expect to pay for Premuim Alfalfa Hay (half cut, wrap) of approximately weight 117.200?
Hey farmers, what’s something you wish newbies knew?
My neighbors installed a scarecrow recently as part of Halloween but I didn't even know it was there until tonight when I went outside in my front yard and was so spooked out when I saw a man standing still with a dark face and long hat under my neighbors night lights. I actually had my phone in my hand and was gonna call the cops when my neighbor went out doors and started changing things on the man which made me realize it was a scarecrow. I was genuinely spooked out so the discovery that it was an object made me cringe in disbelief That said I gotta ask since its a modern trope in fiction that scarecrows are useless and are just there for comedy value on TV and movies. Are scarecrows actually effective at scaring animals away and protecting crops in the process? Because of how creeped out I was by my neighbor's scarecrow and was really gonna report to the cops a trespasser was around, I assume that these objects really worked at protecting crops despite what modern fiction shows?
My parents have owned their house for over 10 years now in the countryside which has a couple fields in which they rent out to one of our local farmers.
The farmer had a rent arrangement from the previous home owners and had asked my parents to continue with the initial arrangement which they agreed to.
To my knowledge I believe that the farmer pays a total of $300 to rent out two fields
My sisters and I believe that my parents are undercharging the farmer and we are curious to know what the average rental cost is
For reference we live in Canada, ON
Hello everyone! I am an Entrepreneurship student. In my class we are researching the idea of a farming selling application that can bridge the gap between farmers and buyers. If y'all can fill out this survey and give any feedback that would be amazing! Thank you!
So a few months back I had worked on a farm for a day and was exposed to a lotttt of dust from hay. I felt sick for the next like 3 days and then felt fine. However, a few times since and more lately, I’ve had these random attacks where my lung gets super itchy and I have a cough/feel short of breath ( may be overthinking I’m anxious). I try to do my research but I don’t really understand how farmers lung works. After just being exposed one time I can develop chronic farmers lung and possibly die? Or can you only get chronic farmers lung from many exposures. Idk how this works and it’s possible these “attacks are from many other things but, this kind of concerns me. I won’t die due to one exposure to hay dust months ago when I’ve mostly felt fine right? Right?!
I’m writing a short story for my writing class and my character is a farmer, is there any farmer/ country slang you guys may know of ? I want to make the character’s voice that of a farmer and make it believable !
Farmers and mankind must stop torturing and murdering defenseless animals.
Farmers have been using animals for their own advantage for thousands of years. It must stop now. They have abused, overworked, underfed, and brutally slaughtered these animals. We must rise up and put a halt to these inhumane acts. Farmers are Murderers.
Hello. I am a nutrition and dietetics graduate student at Metropolitan State University of Denver and need more farmers, farm workers, food rescue workers, and volunteers to take an online survey on gleaning educational materials shared from outside sources gathered on a website. The purpose is to provide educational materials for volunteers and farmers to help facilitate comprehension, recruitment, and participation in gleaning practices mainly in the state of Colorado, but input from out of state is highly useful, too. Our goal is to eventually create standards for practice. This is the survey: https://msudenver.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cSWk47QfTddO3dQ
Please, let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you all for your time and consideration.
I have a cabin farm deep in the woods of wisconsin and a giant tobacco barn on the property thats probably 200+ years old, my grandpa bought it in the 60s and was an amateur farmer on the land in the 60s/70s-80s or 90s and i dont think he had any reason to have/grow hay as it was just his second farm. We have records of the house and I am pretty sure it was vacant in the 50s and a good part of the 60sand partially through the 40s. I dont think the farm animals my grandpa had in his lifetime were ever on the cabin land, we have a very old wooden hay trailer in the barn thats been protected and it still has old hay in it and the upstairs has hay scattered all around the whole thing as well. I am wondering how long hay can hold up and not turn to dust because i am really curious to know if the hay belonged to one of the previous occupants who was apart of a long lineage of two families who lived on the land for over 100 years. That would be very interesting to me. There is a chance my grandpa did have hay just for burning or had a cow or pony/horse on the land as well. Im just curious to figure this out
wanna volunteer in the US or canada or europe. if you know something real text me please .
