* SpiderRobinson's ''[[Literature/CallahansCrosstimeSaloon "Did You Hear The One About..."]]'' plays with the trope. A time-traveling con artist poses as an "intergalactic travelling salesman", until his scam is revealed by [[TimePolice time cop]] Josie Bauer. Josie mentions that her father is a noted science-fiction author, and at the end of the story lets it slip that he's writing a new Literature/{{Riverworld}} novel. So she is indeed a Farmer's Daughter. Creator/PhilipJoseFarmer to be precise.

* In "The Last Laugh" in ''Plop!'' #4, the farmer's daughter happens to be a freckled, pigtailed cute blonde in overalls and absolutely nothing else. Too bad the traveling salesman in the tale fails to realize that it isn't the ''daughter'' her father is worried about when he warns said salesman to stay away from her...

[[spoiler: She turns out to be a murderous psychopath, who seduces him into meeting her alone, then cuts his head off with an axe as a "joke".]]

* [[Characters/FriendshipIsMagicApplejack Applejack]] and Apple Bloom are the epitome of this, being the daughters of the Apple Family. However, the only mother they really know is Granny Smith, their parents either being far away or deceased; also the go-to getup for anyone engaging in Pony {{cosplay}}. ** [[Characters/FriendshipIsMagicPinkiePie Pinkie Pie]] and her sisters ''technically'' qualify as this, given that they grew up on a rock farm...though it applies more to the other Pie girls than Pinkie by the time the show starts.

add comment about Roal Dahl.
Added DiffLines:
* Roal Dahl's short story "The Visitor" has a nasty twist on the old "traveling salesman / farmer's daughter" tale.

* Near the end of ''StubbsTheZombie'', the traveling salesman aspect comes to play when it's revealed that [[spoiler:back when he was alive, Stubbs slept with then Farmer's Daughter Maggie Monday, thus [[LukeYouAreMyFather making him the father of Andrew Monday]]. He was soon afterwards shotgunned by her father.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': Chris befriends one who's such a tomboy that [[LadyLooksLikeADude Chris mistakes her for a boy]], ending up with quite a bit of confusion on Chris' part when they kiss. When she finally reveals that she ''is'' actually a girl (thanks to seriously CompressedHair underneath her ballcap) it leads to a [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Crowning Moment of Funny]] when she suggests to a relieved Chris they go make out, and he promptly responds with an enthusiastic "Yes, sir!"
