A bachelor farmer. More specifically (without going into that whole "unmarried agrarian worker" thing), an elderly man, usually of Scandinavian descent and usually residing in the northern US plains, who has his work (usually farming) and not much else in his life. Stereotypically, he's dour, quiet, and may seem angry or sullen to others. Bachelor farmers are a disappearing breed, for obvious reasons.
