What to Wear When Visiting a Farm

Most people like to wear something that looks good and pleasing. Apart from trending custom t shirts and fashion outfits, what’s important in clothing is the comfort and chance to express oneself. When visiting a farm, it shouldn’t be the case.

Whatever kind of farm it is, it’s expected to get dirt, stains, and other reasons that can cause damage to the clothes. However, the farm shouldn’t be something that limits in wearing fashion staples. You may wear any custom T-shirts if you want, but be sure to wear in the proper way.

There are clothes that are intended for the farm. Aside from them being especially useful on the farm, they are also made for a reason. Visiting a farm could be an exciting adventure. This gives you a sense of responsibility to love nature as a whole. Today, here are some of the clothes to wear during a farm visit.

Hat

Hats should be wide and breathable. This also protects you from the scorching heat while doing a farm activity.

Gloves

Make sure to bring a pair of gloves when visiting a farm. Gloves protect your hand when plowing the field. Also, when there’s heavy work during your visit, a pair of gloves can save the day.

Slippers or Shoes

When visiting a farm, make sure to wear a pair of flat shoes so you wouldn’t have a problem if the field is uneven. If you happened to visit a farm during the rainy season, make sure to wear water-resistant shoes and rain gears such as raincoats and boots.

Long Pants

One of the most important clothes to wear is a pair of jeans or long pants. When wearing one, make sure to tuck it inside your socks to avoid insects like chiggers. Also, wear long pants that are slightly loose so you can walk comfortably.

Hiking Boots

If the farm you plan to visit needs a hike before you get there, it is better to wear hiking boots or shoes. That way, your feet will not be strained.

Flannel Shirt/Plaid T-Shirt

A flannel shirt is lighter and composed of smooth fabrics. Apart from that, flannel can be worn for a long time during hot days.

Denim Jumpers

Aside from flannel, you can also wear denim jumpers paired with custom T-shirts.  Apart from it being cool to wear, it can also protect yourself from the heat.

Other things to wear during a farm visit include:

  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Bandana
  • Sweatshirts/light jackets
  • Scarfs
  • Extra shirts and pants

Final Thoughts

It is important to wear the necessary clothes during a farm visit. When in the farm, it can’t be avoided to stay under the sun for long, plow a field, plant seeds and vegetables, pick up fruits, or visit a barn and feed the animals.

Proper attire is important because it’s not just a necessity but also protects your body from any external harmful objects. That said, make sure to pack yourself with a farm attire so you can enjoy your visit whether in the sunny or rainy season.

Organic Farming Innovation

The CSA Farms has been awarded and duly acknowledged by the Farm Alliance for our innovative organic farming methods presented on this website. With their support, we have offered our team trips to various farms, homesteads, and plantations so they can further explore, discover, and study about vegetable farming.

Additionally, we continue to develop new knowledge to share with the community. FA invites members of the Earth Association (UK) on an annual basis, so we can receive real-time consultation from fellow professionals. They also collaborate with us to provide free e-books and webinars about the food and farming industry.

Eco-Friendly Drive

Eco-Friendly Drive

In an effort to continuously promote sustainability, some farms gather junks from different farm’s partner establishments and customers then recycle them on their farm. Last year, CSA farms gathered plastic bottles to create “Ecobricks” and donated them to non-profit organizations or groups to use as furniture or construction projects.

During the previous years, CSA farms also collected food waste and used them to create compost and deliver them to nearby farms in our area. The possibilities are endless, and this project helps farms prove how important sustainability is. If you have an idea for any upcoming eco-friendly drives, please let us know!
