people get a lot of mileage out of conflating "farmer" with "the CEO of an agribusiness company worth millions"

It's a very strange linguistic problem, I suppose brought on by the economic reality that the only way to profitably farm is to own as much as you can.

But like, you wouldn't call the CEO of Tyson chicken "a butcher"
