The Farmer’s Daughter

The TV version of Little House on the Prairie’s Laura Ingalls Wilder was earnest and cutesy, but a little bit more real than another farmer’s daughter, Daisy Duke from The Dukes of Hazzard who appeared as a one-dimensional sexualized character. Modern Farmer describes the image of the farmer’s daughter as either wholesome or tempting as the “Laura-Daisy Complex” and talked to some real farmer’s daughters beyond them being a male profession’s female relative.
