|Name Translation of Farmer Smurf|
|French||Schtroumpf Paysan, Schtroumpf Jardinier|
Farmer (original French name Schtroumpf Paysan) is one of the main characters of the Smurfs comic books and the Smurfs cartoon show, who has first appeared in "Foul Weather Smurf" and has been featured until Season 9's opening episode, "The Smurfs That Time Forgot". He is responsible for growing and harvesting much of the food that the Smurfs eat on a daily basis.
In the cartoon show, he has a Down East accent, and he also gets all tied up in a turnip when talking to Smurfette. He has a genie named Gourdy, who he had found in his Smurfmelon patch. He becomes constantly frustrated when Gourdy's magic goes wrong and wishes that he would stop helping his master, but he deeply cares about him.
In the comic books, he has Harmony sing and play his off-key music in order to make it rain, and he constantly teases Fisher Smurf about his inability to catch fish. His constant expression in the original French comics is "cre vingt schtroumpfs", which means "sacred twenty smurfs" (a play on "cre vingt dieux", or "sacred twenty gods").
His character in the cartoon was voiced by Alan Young.
In the movie series
In the 2011 movie his character was voiced by Joel McCrary. Farmer appears in the 2011 movie in the opening scene, and also in the ending, when Brainy brings help from the Smurf Village to fight against Gargamel.
- Farmer Smurf is identified as Schtroumpf Jardinier in a Schtroumpferies one-page comic gag. In the Dutch translation he is misidentified as Natuursmurf, which is Natural Smurf's Dutch name.
