Hourly rate on a farm?

I've got to quantify my hourly rate for work done on the farm. Clearly, this is not possible as its for fun, no profit is involved, and the question makes no sense.

So, is there a going rate for agricultural labour ( for fencing, pipe laying, installing water troughs, etc)?

If not, what's the minimum wage? I could use that at a pinch.

For what purpose is the question being asked?
If it for a funding application, put it as minimum wage (or less) and still show no profit.
If for insurance, then whatever it costs to hire someone to do it for you.

Funding.

And, even though I fall below the level for grade one, because it's my look out, I'm grade six. 9.14 an hour. Shocked

Well, you would only earn a 1 less as a shelf stacker at Tesco. Laughing

Yes, but that would take my soul, too. Wink

You hear that, Rob, you're on nine quid an hour.

Only 9 votes an hour...

They were happy with a figure of around a tenner an hour, although I could also use a quoted rate from a local contractor, even if I didn't use him.
