Win a Copy of ‘Would You Marry A Farmer?’

Thursday, December 05th, 2013

Front cover for Would You Marry a FarmerBack 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.
