UK farmers make more money than social media influencers after a tough year

British farmers face a tough harvest. According to the government, costs have risen by almost a third from last year, low rainfall and record temperatures have meant poor yields and labor shortages mean some crops are rotting in the fields. To diversify their income, some farmers are turning to social media. American farmers started bragging about their lives and jobs a few years ago, now their British counterparts are following suit to boost unstable incomes. Some make more money from YouTube than from growing food.

lly Harrison, a grain farmer in Merseyside, said he made £55,000 on his YouTube channel last year compared to a £240,000 loss at his farm due to poor weather and rising input prices. He expected to make “at least £8,000” from ads in October, a sum that will go towards “supporting” his farm. Harrison has expanded his online business to merchandise including branded hats and calendars printed with images of his farm.
