This could almost be just a real-world tale, but there's a few details that set it up for a bit of fantasy horror. Most prominently, the mostly hidden otherworldliness of the landlords. It's referenced rather late, but it makes their plot to displace the farmers by offering to buy common lands even more disconcerting. If the landlords are some sort of alien being, are they truly waiting to profit from the crops, or from the farmers?

I do feel that a bit more early foreshadowing about the landlord
