A gentleman's farm is a largely historic term for a property, of varying size, that is owned by a farmer traditionally known as a gentleman farmer. A gentleman farmer is the largely historic term used to describe a country gentleman who has a farm as part of his estate and who farms mainly for pleasure rather than for profit. His acreage may produce any number of types of grains, poultry or other livestock. The estate can vary from under ten to hundreds or even thousands of acres. The gentleman farmer employs labourers and farm managers. However, according to the 1839 Encyclopedia of Agriculture, he "did not associate with these minor working brethren". The chief source of income for the gentleman farmer was derived not from any income that the landed property may generate. He invariably had his own private income, or worked as a professional and/or owned a large business elsewhere. Or all three.
