I would use the NOC job description below:  It would also fall under the Express Entry system, I'm just not sure if it would fall under federal skilled worker , or federal skilled trades.  Maybe someone else can comment on that, or perhaps there is a specific stream for farmers.  There is a lot of information on cic.gc.ca, have a read and see what you can find.
