Lonely farmers now have dating site

FarmersOnly.com, launched just over three years ago, has quickly become the place for farmers, ranchers, and down-to-earth people who relate to the agricultural lifestyle to meet their match. In the last three years, membership has risen from 2,000 to over 100,000 members.

“There have been countless successful matches made on FarmersOnly.com. In fact, there have been at least 75 marriages since FarmersOnly.com began,” said founder Jerry Miller. “At a recent farm show in Minnesota, I met three couples who got married after meeting on the site. However, none of them had contacted me, so there are likely many more marriages that we don’t even know about yet.”

Miller is a partner in a public-relations firm that works with over 4,000 farms and ranches across the country. While talking to one farmer, Jerry made quite a discovery.

“Recently divorced, she expressed her frustration of how difficult it was to meet someone new,” Jerry recalled.

“I’m ready to give up!” she said. “How am I going to meet someone working on a farm all day? I already know everybody who lives around here, which isn’t many people! Maybe I’ll try online dating.”

She signed up on one of the biggest national dating sites soon after their conversation.

A month later, Miller asked her how her luck was with online dating. She replied, even more frustrated, “The men who have been contacting me don’t understand the lifestyle of a farmer. They don’t have a clue!” This would later lead to the site’s slogan, “City Folks Just Don’t Get It!”

Being in marketing, Miller wanted to see if there was a need for a new site specifically for single farmers. “I talked to farmers and ranchers all over the country and discovered they all had the same problems. They already knew everybody in their immediate areas. They didn’t have enough time to socialize. When they did find time, they didn’t want to hang out at a bar. They wanted to find someone who understood their lifestyle,” he said.

“The need for this new online dating service became very clear and six months later, I launched FarmersOnly.com.”

Despite the name, FarmersOnly isn’t limited to just farmers. However, those who become members must be down to earth and respect farmers and ranchers and understand their lifestyle.

This is kind of humorous. I am sure that some farmers may have access to the internet but the concept of "finding love" online doesn't seem like it would suit your average lonely farmer. Seems church related social ... More ›
