`farm out’

“When you `farm out’ work to someone, what you are doing is getting the person to do it.” “So if I have too much work, I can farm some of it out to a colleague or to an outsider.”

Examples: “The new company that my dad works for farms out a lot of work to consultants.” * “When I become the boss, I am going to farm out all my work.”

It is also possible to farm out people. When you do this, you are sending someone to work for somebody else.
