Oh, Crash. The farmer's market is tomorrow and my wumpa trees won't grow for my orchard is riddled with greedy worms. If you rid my land of these pests, I'll give you this Power Crystal.Farmer Ernest, Crash Twinsanity
Farmer Ernest is a dark blue emu farmer who grows wumpa trees, raises his own chickens, and participates in farmer's markets. He lives in a small farmhouse behind the skull rock on N. Sanity Island. He appears to know and trust Crash Bandicoot.
Ernest's only appearance was on Crash Twinsanity, in which he asks Crash to get rid of a swarm of worms in his orchard. The player must use Cortex as an hammer to smash the worms in the time limit and let the Wumpa trees grow.
- There is concept art of Farmer Ernest holding a pig in the enemy gallery.
- Though he is not an enemy in the game, he is one of the many characters that, for some reason, hurt Crash on contact.
- Farmer Ernest's appearance in the game is a parody of the video game trope of a side characters asking the hero to do a favor for them in exchange for a reward (such as "Spyro the Dragon" and "Jak & Daxter").
- He is one of the only characters of the series that, as of November 2019, has not returned in any way, shape or form in Nitro-Fueled, alongside Yaya Panda, Willie Wumpa Cheeks, Rusty Walrus, Bearminator, Viscount, and the Elementals.
