Have you ever worked down on the Farm?

Within farm laborers, there was a difference in conditions between those workers who ‘lived in’, ie at the farm they worked, and those who were ‘day laborers’ and had their own cottages. Farm servants who ‘lived in’, were usually hired for six months of the year. They were paid their keep, plus a lump sum agreed when hired, at the end of their term of agreement. Most were young, and the vast majority were unmarried.

Do you think Farm workers lifestyles have changed today?
