Jobs For The Kids.

True North

Livestock Farmer

my lad is earning himself a nice bit of money at various farms, all ok of course because he’s over 13.

But we are struggling for our youngest, who’s busting to get out there and earning. Farm work isn’t what’s required and all other enquires yield the same response: “we only take on kids over 16”. I think it’s an insurance problem.

Anybody else found a nice little earner for their rugrats?

Cheers, Pete.

Could she sell to passers by?

What about some wildflowers? Plants like lavender or bluebells?

Don't know if you have much passing trade but it could be a good summer gig for a kid at that age, along with some eggs?

Her own farm shop enterprise? I'm suggesting this as this is my own goal too!


Arable Farmer
I have a step daughter and two stepsons. The daughter liked chickens and really wanted some so I got 70 spent layers fro a friend at a local Hutterite colony. Skinny roadrunner looking chickens but boy can those things lay. Couldn’t get enough eggs to sell as everyone wanted free run eggs so I got 130 more. Ended up selling so many eggs she was making 200$ a week from egg sales. Sold them via local buy and sell advert
