    ha ha i think what your refering to is people who just naturally big and unusually strong. in highschool people jokingly called me a farmer becuase i was this big dude from the country... even though i wasnt a farmer.

    lol Farley's right. There were a lot of farmers at my high school and we all said they had farmers strength because they were so strong from bailing hay and doin farm work which does make you crazy strong because you've been doin it for so long.

    It doesn't even have to be a big guy. Farmer's strength can be anyone, but more often than not, they know how to use their muscle. Using them everyday farming compared to an office job, it becomes a little easier for the smaller farmer to be as 'strong' as another. As you can guess, I'm definetely a farm kid.

    I was raised on a farm
    Get up 500 am eat big ass breakfast
    go work
    noon eat big lunch go work
    500pm eat dinner go work
    sunset stop work take shower go to bed and repeat.
    you eat as much as your gut can hold cause you will burn it up
    its a lot of hard work & does make you strong as hell for your size.
    the only prob is everyone else in you area is a farm kid too so ya have to be strong. just to keep up with them in sports
