- n. One who is not a farmer.
To secure a steady supply of high-quality fruit, Mr. Singer leased land in three central Japan prefectures and now has nine koshu vineyards, a huge landholding for a nonfarmer in Japan.
Membership (as a proportion of nonfarmer workers) peaked at about 32% in 1955, and entered a long, steady decline, counterbalanced in part by a growth of unions in the public sector (inclusing hospital workers, police, corrections guards, firemen, municipal workers and postal emplopyees.)
