How much do farmhands make? How much do you usually pay per hour? Does that include health insurance? Do you give bonuses? I'm wondering what the average rate is.

It's usually 11 bucks an hour. This is the average. True wages are going to vary by location, cost of living, the generosity of the farm owner doing the hiring, etc....

This is largely unskilled labor so most people, on both sides of the fence if you will, know what they're getting into.
