Q: does (peasant) mean (farmer)?
A: Peasant is considered a person of low social status, at least modernly. Usually back in older times it was a poor farmer, whose only way of economic income was to rent land and farm as much as possible, later on they would either sell what they made in the market, or would keep it to feed their family. Now a days the association with poor people has stuck, and now is used to call anyone that one considers to show low socio-economic behavior (someone that yells in public places, rude, unsophisticated). Of course this is a bad thing to call someone a peasant, and is something that only rude rich people say.
