Colonial life depended a lot on farming. Nine out of ten people lives on small family farms. Days were long and filled with lots of hard labor. Work done on the farms were cutting wood, feeding animals, clearing land, tending crops, building fences, making furniture and tools, gathering eggs, spinning thread, weaving cloth, sewing clothes, making candles and soap, cooking, cleaning, and caring for babies.Instead of going to the store like we do today they made or raised everything they needed.

The farm life was undoubtedly not an easy life.
