North American Guidelines for Children's Agricultural Tasks (NAGCAT) Guidelines


Children can grow up right before our eyes and each child has unique characteristics that develop over time. Because every child's growth and development is different, these recommendations for children's agricultural chores are not based on age.

By using these guidelines you can match up your child's growth and development with the requirements of different farm chores. Ideally children and teenagers will gain meaningful work experience with less risk of farm related disease or injury.
