Agriculture and Horticulture Workers

Farm labourers and greenhouse workers may be involved in wild animal husbandry, raising domestic livestock like dairy cows, horses and poultry and in the collection and marketing of eggs, dairy and meat products and in planting, cultivating and harvesting field crops like vegetables and fruits.


  • There are no specific educational requirements for general farm and greenhouse workers, but a high school diploma and/or a diploma or degree in agriculture is useful. On-the-job training is often available.
