“The Idaho Farmer,” created by local artist Terry Lee, was commissioned by The Jacklin Family and donated to the City of Coeur d’Alene “in recognition of the Idaho Farmers who produce seeds, food and fodder from the prairies, meadows and gentle slopes of North Idaho.” The statue is located next to the extremely popular “American Worker” statue, also created by Terry Lee, and donated to the City of Coeur d’Alene by Dean and Cindy Haagenson.
