Back in July we wrote about farmer’s wife Lorna Sixsmith who was looking for funding to publish her book entitled ‘Would You Marry A Farmer?’, which was inspired by the success of her humorous blog post ‘Advice to those considering marrying farmers – 9 Tips’. We are pleased to announce that Irish Farmerette Lorna did achieve her target and that the book is now available to buy online.
Lorna has kindly given us a copy of the book to give to one lucky Muddy Matcher and you’ll even find a paragraph about Muddy Matches in the book!
About the Book
We were fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy of the book as part of Irish Farmerette’s virtual book tour and have been engrossed ever since.
Without giving anything away; if you’re looking for a fluffy romcom with bunnies, breeches and a Mr Darcy type waiting around the next corner you’ve come to the wrong place. What you get with ‘Would You Marry A Farmer?’ is a genuine, funny and warm insight about what it’s like to be an Irish farmer as well as an eye-opening view of what it’s like to be married to an Irish farmer. In fact you get the whole journey from how to interpret a personal ad written by a farmer, through to how to spot a mammy’s boy, what each type of farmer does for living and what it’s like to move from a large town to a rural farming community.
So if you’re looking for a Christmas treat for someone who’s farming obsessed, a single friend looking for love or a partner who thinks that an annual holiday is just what city folks take, this is the perfect present for them.
How to Win a Copy
For your chance to win, just email us with your name and your funniest agricultural joke. The joke doesn’t have to be original, it just has to make us laugh or groan.
Only one prize will be awarded.
Entries must be received by Monday 6th January 2013 and the winner will be announced on the news page.
The Book Tour
Check out the Irish American Mom’s blog tomorrow for the next stage in the book tour.
ITV’s Countrywise is looking for a farmer from South Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire or Norfolk to take part in the latest series of this extremely popular countryside show.
They will be featured in a small section of one episode which will look at the challenges farmers face in meeting a soulmate due to long working hours and isolation that often comes with the job and leaves little time or opportunity for love.
The volunteer farmer, who can be male OR female would have to be happy to appear on camera and chat about how difficult meeting like minded people can be.
The programme makers would also like to complete the story by filming the farmer on a date……
It will be a fun day’s filming in August and you never know – it could be a success story in the making!
To find out more please contact Emily Burndred from ITV on 0161 952 1079 or email@example.com
Farmers Weekly are looking for rural couples to speak to them about their relationship for a new series in the magazine. Whether you’re in a new relationship or have been together for years, they’d love to hear from you.
The articles will be light-hearted and not too intrusive, so you won’t have to reveal anything too much. Questions will include how you met, what you love about your partner and what makes countryside love different to love in urban areas.
If you’d like to see your name in print, email Tim Relf at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
