"Bean was a turkey-and-apple farmer. He kept thousands of turkeys in an orchard full of apple trees. He never ate any food at all. Instead, he drank gallons of strong cider which he made from the apples in his orchard. He was thin as a pencil and the cleverest of them all." - Fantastic Mr Fox

Along with Boggis and Bunce, Bean appears in Roald Dahl's 1970 children's story, Fantastic Mr Fox. He is one of three farmers plagued by the cunning Mr Fox, who regularly raids Bean's farm in order to feed his family.

It is Bean that comes up with the farmer's plan to capture the Foxes, and it is because of him that Mr Fox loses his fine tail. But even Farmer Bean is no match for Mr Fox, as he soon finds out...

The 2009 animated film version of Fantastic Mr Fox, directed by Wes Anderson, have Bean a first name - Franklin. The character was voiced by actor Michael Gambon, who also played Albus Dumbledore in the final six films in the Harry Potter series.
