* Almanzo Wilder in Creator/LauraIngallsWilder 's ''Farmer Boy'' personifies this trope. Justified, as it's the story of Wilder's youth on a horse farm. This also makes him (somewhat) the DistaffCounterpart to young Laura in the other books in the series.

The CallToAdventure is very much {{downplayed|trope}}: it's only to go west to the wild frontier (for more farming), and occurs long after the book ends.

** Other ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games' Links come close. Though not farmers, they often live a fairly simple life before something draws them into the adventure (for example, two have been apprentice blacksmiths and another was an apprentice train conductor). Only the [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda cartoon]] and direct sequels start out with a seasoned adventurer.
