Poll: Are you happy with your work-life balance?

British farmers work tirelessly around the clock to produce the nation’s food and take care of the countryside.

An extensive Farmers Weekly survey has found that the average farmer is working more than 65 hours a week – and the busiest farmers are working in excess of 100 hours.

But many are not taking enough holidays, taking on average just 11 days of annual leave. Meanwhile, one out of two is not doing any form of exercise outside of farming.
