An acre can of course be any shape, but traditionally was 1 furlong by 1 chain (660 ft x 66 ft). However a furrow was maybe 9 inches wide, so that would mean 88 times up and down the field. That gives you your 11 miles, and that's without walking to and from work from home, and from the farm to the fields and back. They were hard old boys.
