Gentleman farmer

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A gentleman farmer is a landowner who has a farm (gentleman's farm) as part of his estate and who farms mainly for pleasure rather than for profit or sustenance.[1][2]

The farm can vary from under ten to hundreds or even thousands of acres, and may produce any number of types of grains, poultry, or other livestock. A gentleman farmer employs labourers and may also employ a farm manager, and the farm is usually not the chief source of his income. He generally has his own private income, works in a profession, owns a large business elsewhere, or some combination of the three.[3][4][5][6]

Some notable gentlemen farmers include James Roosevelt I, the father of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt; Dwight D. Eisenhower, who retired to a farm near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania after leaving the White House; George Washington, who farmed at Mount Vernon; Winthrop Rockefeller, son of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. who moved to Arkansas in 1953 and established Winrock Farms on Petit Jean Mountain; James Jefferson Webster; who owned multiple business and served in the Rockingham County local government; Frederick Hinde Zimmerman;[7] Frank C. Rathje; and William Locke Allison, known for Allison Woods, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.[8]
