Description

This stamp pays tribute a physically hard and difficult job in this era: farming. This job was frequently performed by women.

Female farmers helped to cultivate the land and to care for animals. They also looked after the children and took care of the whole farm.

The work of a woman farmer was physically demanding. In those days there were no farm machines to assist the families who worked in the fields.
