people get a lot of mileage out of conflating "farmer" with "the CEO of an agribusiness company worth millions"


@InternetEh we have a similar problem over in the UK where they say "fisherman" instead of "obscenely wealthy ceo who is emptying the ocean at unsustainable rates"

As a UKian involved in food growing - its the same here.
Most people would think different but within the industry the farmer is the person in charge of the operation. Generally the person that owns or rents the land. Scale doesnt come into it.
If they are big they may employ one or more farm managers.
Most employ farm workers / labourers at least some of the time and/or get agricultural contractors to turn up with their flashy modern tractors, sprayers, harvesters etc. @InternetEh
