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, such as Cliegg, his son Owen, and the latter's wife Beru.
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.
