"I'm just a farmboy from Tatooine. One of many sand-planet farmboys. When someone comes from what's ours, they don't try it twice. We work an honest day and a long one. We're the good guys but you wouldn't want to meet us in the dark. Where I come from, when someone pushes you, you push back harder. Just like these dune worms are doing! You come at a farmboy, well... You reap what you sow."
Luke Skywalker, to Sergeant Kreel[1]

Farmers, also known as ranchers, were farm workers or owners. On desert worlds like Tatooine, moisture farmers harvested water from the atmosphere.

During the Age of the Empire, farmers on Lothal were often dispossessed of their land.

Luke Skywalker is described in the original Star Wars script as a "farm boy."
