The Farmer is a full-bodied Muppet who appears in The Tale of the Bunny Picnic. The surly Southern-accented farmer tries to protect his produce from the rabbits, and threatens his rather mistreated dog if he lets any get through.
Although ironically, the Farmer is allergic to bunnies, he still intends to make a stew out of them. In his own words, "the only rabbit that doesn't make me sneeze is a stewed rabbit." Bean Bunny is later able to use the Farmer's weakness against him.
