From Wildermyth Wiki

Farmer is the basic class for all starting human heroes, as well as most NPCs, including the villagers who help defend against incursions.

Once a farmer is promoted, they become a warrior, hunter or mystic instead.

Farmers do not have any unique class abilities; most have access only to General abilities, if any at all. They can use some special abilities from a given scenario, for example Archers during incursions. They are usually armed with a pitchfork, though they may also have a bow.
