Farmers are the ultimate outdoor workers. Farm shirts in technical fabrics offer a range of features to keep you comfortable, protected, and productive every day.

Shirts for farmers that work for you during your workday

The best shirts for farmers are the ones that have been designed and developed for the outdoors. What you wear affects how you work. The best shirts for farmers feature advancements in clothing technology that are a match for the farming lifestyle, look and feel good, and can be used for work and play without a second thought. The range of shirts from The Safari Store have been designed, developed, tested, and refined to be trusted by men, women, and children around the world for the outdoors. Never has a range of shirts been a better fit for farmers and their daily requirements and challenges when it comes to their work wear.

Top 3 Things to Look for in Farming Shirts

  1. Fabric Features for the Outdoors: The best shirts for farmers have features for the outdoors that will make a difference to your day. Things like built-in UPF50+ and anti-insect properties form the foundation of any farmer's sun and insect protection strategy. Anti-bacterial, moisture wicking, and quick drying features are ideal for the hot and sweaty nature of farm work - helping you to stay cool, dry, and comfortable as you move between tasks. Not only does this help to keep you cool during hot and sweaty tasks, but it dries quickly to avoid chill as you cool down.
  2. Farm Life by Design: Look for farming shirts where thought has gone into the practicalities of the design. For instance, we all know a long-sleeved shirt is essential for the outdoors, but sometimes you need to roll them up to get down to business. Double roll-up sleeve tabs prevent sleeves from unrolling and getting in the way or covered in muck. Sunglasses are great for the glare, but tucking them into your collar can result in scratched and damaged shades. Sunglasses loops mean you can take off your glasses and take a closer look with extra peace of mind around your glasses. For warmer weather or active work tasks, look for vents as this increases breathability and airflow, helping the fabric to dry.
  3. Work it in Work Clothes: The diversity of the days is one of the great things about farming. Pick shirts that fit the part no matter what the day holds for total wardrobe convenience. The best shirts for farmers are the ones you can wear in the field, in the barn, and while you work on manual farm tasks - but that look good everywhere you go. Farmers want to grab and go when it comes to their work garb. By selecting stylish work shirts, you have the extra assurance that you look good for town trips, meetings, and social occasions.

Men's, Women's, and Childrens Fashionable, Functional Shirts for Farmers

Shirts in shifts: long sleeves, rolled up sleeves, and farming T-shirts: The leading recommendation when it comes to farm clothing advice is to dress in layers. While a long-sleeved farm shirt is the top recommendation as a core layer, variety is the spice of life and it's worth having a selection of different long-sleeved farm shirts and T-shirts to choose from every day. Mix and match the best shirts for farmers from our specialist outdoor work wear and clothing bestsellers.

How BUGTech™ farm shirts stand out from other shirts in the industry.

  • Insect defence AND moisture wicking: The anti-insect treatment used by many clothing brands has the unfortunate effect of affecting the breathability and moisture wicking capabilities of the fabric. We have sent our shirts for lab testing to ensure our farm shirts' anti-insect treatment doesn't mean a compromise around wicking. Wicking plays a critical role in moving sweat and moisture away from the skin to keep you dry and cool - and we firmly believe you should have the best of both worlds as you work.
  • Tested in a lab, tested again outdoors: Our farm shirts are lab-tested for efficacy, but field testing is the best way to gauge how well a shirt works in the field. At The Safari Store, our BUGTech™ and MaraTech™ fabrics have been extensively tested and have evolved to become the fabrics that they are today off the back of outdoor wearer tests and experiences.
