This reality show tracks the lives of a group of single farmers looking to meet their perfect partner.
Photos and particulars of the hopeful candidates are placed in a national magazine and interested parties are encouraged to write in. Once the 'ideal partner' has been selected, the dating process begins.
From barn dances and agricultural shows, to special rural events, the programme delves into the backgrounds of the rural 'singles', following them for the duration of an entire season. A relationship expert, a behaviourist and an image consultant are on hand to give their opinions, to both the farmers and the viewers, as to what is going right and what is going wrong. Along the way, experts help the farmers sow the seeds of love and improve their chance of finding a partner. The Farmer Wants A Wife captures the emotions, the disappointments and the successes, really turning up the heat in the countryside.
