Abstract: Well-being of farm workers is necessary in order to foster farming sustainability. We contribute with the research on well-being, exploring on what extent farm-level features influence farmers satisfaction with their work and with their quality of life, using a data sample of 1099 farms in nine European countries. Results suggest that satisfaction with the farm work has a significant and large influence on the satisfaction with the quality of life. Farm-level aspects such as working time, age of assets, financial situation of the farm and social engagement significantly influence farmers satisfaction with farming but their joint effect explains less than a quarter of it.
