The Farmer (also named nicknamed Mr. X in the Shaun the Sheep movie) is the possible owner of Mossy Bottom farm where the whole scene of Shaun the Sheep takes place
He is a typical farmer, but not very smart, even though he has solved quite a few problems during the show. He goes about his daily business unaware that his sheep are anything but normal animals - and Bitzer is determined to keep it that way. However, there have been many close calls. He was a re-sculpt of Mr. Hugh from Stage Fright. The Farmer is described like a every-day farmer who tries to survive with his farm and all the animals on it. Strangely, he seems to be able to fix any damage made to the farm because of Shaun and the Flock, though he does show outrage over the damages caused sometimes. He always tries to shear his sheep and when he does, they run away from him (seen in Fleeced)
Background Not much is known about the farmer's background, but it is revealed that he has lived on his farm ever since he was a child. His family, may have owned the farm for generations as seen on a shelf above his fireplace which shows photos of (in respective order); him and Bitzer along with The Flock, his father alongside a unnamed dog (maybe Bitzer's father) and sheep, and his grandfather.
As shown in Who's The Caddy, the Farmer was once a prized golf player. The photo also shows that Bitzer has been on the Farmer's side for his entire life as he was just a puppy at the time. He also wore an Afro-like appearance, which may indicate that he was a good dancer back in the 80s. He has a real twin brother who is into "new age" music. In the episode "Karma Farmer", the farmer leaves and put his brother in charge of the farm. The animals aren't aware this is not their usual farmer and don't understand why he acts so strangely until the real farmer comes back and show them an old picture of him and his twin brother. Personality The Farmer is an oblivious and clumsy gentleman. He has a like for different things, which The Flock also want to do. He has several flaws, but above all, he is a caring and devoted farmer. He always speaks in mumbo-jumbo and uses rather action to communicate.
Hobbies The Farmer has over the course of the series been shown to have several hobbies, the most notable of which is his love for his tractor. The Farmer has shown particular outrage when his tractor are either destroyed or damaged.
The Farmer has also been shown to enjoy tending his garden, and has shown an particular interest in flowers.
Prior to the show, the Farmer was also a prized golf player, with Bitzer being his caddie. It is unknown why The Farmer quit as a golf player, but it could be that he took over the farm at the time and could not find time to spare to maintain this hobby. His Afro-like appearance in the same episode also indicates that he was a renounced dancer back in the 80s.
