What does a Farmer do?
As a farmer you produce and sell food such as fruit, vegetables, milk and eggs, depending on your specialisation. Either you grow plant products or you work with animals and offer animal products. For the latter, you know about animals and take care of them. That means you feed them, water them and clean the stables. Depending on the animal you keep, you may have to collect eggs, milk cows and even slaughter animals. Selling your products to customers is also an important part of your work.

- Stamina and physical ability
