"Luke's just not a farmer, Owen. He has too much of his father in him."
―Beru Lars, to her husband Owen[src]

Owen Lars and his nephew, Luke Skywalker, were moisture farmers.

A moisture farmer or vapor farmer was an individual who operated a moisture farm, using vaporators to harvest excess humidity in the atmosphere. On sun-scorched worlds like Tatooine, most settlers of the desert were moisture farmers.[source?] Notable examples included members of the Lars family, Cliegg, his son Owen, the latter's wife Beru.[1]

Moisture farmers built their homesteads to be partially buried in the ground, as this protected them from wind and heat and kept the residence cool.[2]
