41 Funny Farmer Names (+ Tips for Creating Your Own)

Farmer gathering potatoes from his crop

Though today’s world is more focused on technology than a traditional agricultural lifestyle, farmers still play a huge role in our daily lives and culture.

In the U.S., there are around two million farms, and 98% of them are operated by families.[1]

Each farm in the U.S. grows enough food to feed 165 people annually[2] — so every individual farm and farmer is very important!

While the work of farmers is essential to life, farming doesn’t always have to be serious. In nicknaming, gaming, or character-building, it can be great to use humor to describe farmers and farm life.

Below, we have the list of more than 40 funny farmer name ideas, plus tips to help you come up with your own additional options.

How to Create Your Own Funny Farmer Names

If you haven’t yet found the perfect farmer name, we have some tips to help you generate more ideas with your own creative spin!

  • Think of farm tools, animals, and crops. These make great starting points for finding the perfect farmer name. For example, if you love to eat corn, you can come up with a name related to it — like “Corncob Clyde” or “Mr. Husk.” Or, if horses are your favorite farm animal, you could choose the name of a famous horse, such as “Hidalgo.”
  • Tailor the name to your own sense of humor. Your funny farmer name should, above all, be funny to you. Do you have a clean, classic sense of humor, or are you more self-deprecating? Simple names like “Bob Evans” (after the restaurant) will be funny to some, while others will prefer more obscure references or sarcastic names.
  • Get inspiration from popular culture. There are plenty of books, films, and songs about farmers and farm life. If you have any particular favorites, you can use them to inspire your farmer name. Examples from our list include “Uncle Henry” and “Aunt Em,” both inspired by farmer characters in “The Wizard of Oz.”
