It depends on what you want to get out of it.

Light farmers walk for longer intervals trains grip endurance (particularly with dumbells) and CV endurance while heavier farmers walk over short distances builds grip strength, core strength and power.

Heavy farmers walk is pretty taxing so I wouldn't do it more than 1-2 times a week.

A good goal to start with would be to work up to bodyweight in each hand although you'll need proper farmers walk bars for that as grip would be a big issue on dumbells.
