    I’d have to laugh at this I met my husband across his mother s table she had a b and b I was bored waiting for my friend so she said I could go feeding calves with himself we just got on straight away nine yes later still together it was never the farm the problem it was the long distance from each other

    Farmers daughter and farmers wife!!! Said I also wanted to marry someone just like my dad, and I did. Old fashioned, hard working farmer. Farming is not a job it is a way of life!

  3. Love it, my friend married a farmer (about 35 yrs ago) he picked us up from work in a Range Rover when they weren’t a fashion item & hardly anyone had one.

    I met my husband driving a tractor to Paris for charity. We have been married for 34 years and nothing changes . The farm still comes first every time, holidays are a rare treat, and the dog spends more time with him than I do. I wouldn’t change it most of the time. But to survive you need to be strong of mind and body, self contained,resilient and have understanding friends.

      Haha our dog is mine so thankfully it is me she sees more of. Holidays are overrated 😉

      There’s a few on Facebook. I just searched farmer’s wives but check out Ladies and Livestock too 🙂

  6. My husbands cousin is married to a farmer and half the time she has to do things by herself as her hubby is so busy in the fields, on the farm or with the animals at work. I imagine being married to a farmer can be quite difficult but obviously well worth it.

    I met my farmer at a church Youth Club. What most impressed me? He had a car! Well, an old Mini Van.
    Fifty One years later we’re still together (minus the Mini Van).
