Jimmy Carter owned and ran a peanut business inherited from his father. They planted peanuts at one time, but by the time Jimmy took charge, they ran a peanut distribution business, buying peanuts from farmers, storing them and reselling them.

Harry Truman ran his father's farm as a young man but soon moved to the city.

Ulysses Grant ran his father-in-law's farm near St. Louis for a few years, without much success. His career was a short one.

William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor , Andrew Jackson, James Monroe, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington all owned large plantations which ,except for Harrison, they farmed with slave labor. Most of these men had other sources of income other than their farms so I am not sure you would call them farmers.

John Adams owned a farm which was probably not a major source of his income .
