ClassicsFilter: looking for a Greek politician (or philosopher?) who makes an analogy between politics and agriculture.

I have a hazy memory of an Athenian political or intellectual figure who compares the practice of farming to the tradition of politics/citizenship. Part of me wants to say that he praises being a farmer in the morning and a politician in the afternoon... or perhaps it was just that politics can learn something from agriculture and vice versa. Can anyone help me place this?
