Gotta milk those yakows, gotta milk those yakows...!”— Farmer, The Precursor Legacy
The Farmer is a character in The Precursor Legacy. He lives in the northernmost part of Sandover Village on a farm where he raises yakows. The Farmer asked Jak and Daxter to get his herd of yakows back into their pen in the mission "Herd the yakows into their pen". Jak and Daxter succeeded in leading all the yakows back into the pen and he gave them a power cell.
The Farmer is a bony old man who has a large straw hat, a wooden walking staff and carries a large bundle of straw on his back, presumably to feed the yakows. He owns a ranch and a small corral where he keeps his yakows. The Farmer also grows a plot rice paddies next to his ranch. He is the closest resident to the Forbidden Jungle.
The Farmer made a cameo in the spin-off game Daxter, during a quicktime event-based minigame called dream mode, wherein he portrayed "Morpheus" from the movie The Matrix, opposite of his trainee Daxter who dreamt himself to be "Neo". Considering this was a dream, the events concerning the Farmer in this game are non-canon.
