How to Meet Single Farmers

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

You can even use our advanced search function to search for single male and single female farmers from across the UK and Ireland.

However, if you are looking for additional ways to meet single farmers are some other suggestions:

Young Farmers clubs

When we conducted our Kissing Poll last year, it came as no surprise that the most common answer to ‘Where did you have your first kiss?’ was ‘At a young farmers do’ and it’s not just teenagers who can meet their farmer match through the groups. Young Farmers isn’t just about parties and kissing, they also organise competitions (stock-judging, tug-of-war and flower arranging to name but a few), training and an AGM, which are all great ways to meet people who share your interests. The only catch is that the groups are aimed at people aged from 10-26.

Farmer’s balls

Often organised by Young Farmers clubs and other farming organisations including the NFU, farmer’s balls are to farmers what nightclubs are to city-dwellers. Get a group of friends together, get your best clothes on and get ready to dance the night away. Keep in mind that farmer’s balls aren’t singles events, but get ready to ask a cute farmer for a dance when the night gets into full swing.

Through work

If you work in profession like agricultural sales or as a vet, you’ll have a head start when it comes to meeting farmers. What could be a better pairing than a vet and a farmer?  However, it’s not always a good idea to mix business and pleasure, especially if your manager has put a ‘no dating the clients’ clause in your contract.

Rugby matches

Another sporting way to meet farmers is to join a local rugby club. In my experience, local rugby matches are real community events and you can almost guarantee that there will be a self-appointed match-maker there trying to fix you up with someone, whether you like it or not. Join in the post-match ‘analysis’ in the bar to meet new people, hopefully including single farmers.
