Farmer  (FARMER)

Special classifications apply in agriculture. Farmers1 or farm operators1 are those who farm the land for profit; among them we distinguish between farm-owners2, who own their land, and tenant farmers3, who rent it from a landlord. Agricultural labourers4 are persons working on the land who are employed by farmers.
