Husbandman

A farmer; one who tills the ground.

The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth. Be ye ashamed, O ye HUSBANDMEN; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished. ( Joel 1:10-11 )
