FarmersOnly is a niche dating site that aims to help rural dwellers find dates with singles who understand their lifestyle and uphold the same values. FarmersOnly, launched in , was conceptualized to bring together people who enjoy "wide open spaces and blue skies". Setting themselves apart from the city-dwellers in "high heels, blue suits, and taxi cabs", FarmersOnly came up with the tagline "City folks just don't get it!

Farmers are unique in the respect that it's more difficult to move location because of the nature of their work and they can't really travel in search of a partner. Mark says famers' lifestyles are also a major obstacle when it comes to arranging dates. Even the weather can put a last minute damper on social plans. He's not the only one who's experienced challenges when it comes to finding love and farming. He says it's especially trying in the summer when there's silage and hay to be made.
She didn't believe me and thought it was a ridiculous excuse," says Eli.
Dating site just for farmers
The main problem, he says, is that many people have a preconceived idea that all farmers are "old and bald" so they don't believe that he's a beef farmer at his age. First-generation farmer Nicole Caldwell moved from New York City to "the middle of nowhere" when she inherited her uncle's property in upstate New York. She says moving from NYC to a place where families have been established for more than years made for an unusual dating experience, often one that left her feeling like she was occupying a space between two worlds — "too city for the country, too country for the city".
She tried out FarmersOnly. Most of her Tinder matches happened when she made her way back into the city to work or see friends. She's now living with her current boyfriend, who she met in a bar and "bewitched" into moving to her area.
It seems if you're a farmer looking for a Tinder date, you'll need to be willing to go the distance For year-old Hannah Blackmer — a farmer in central Vermont — distance has been a major problem in her Tinder game. I live in a very rural area which makes it pretty difficult to meet people, let alone young or single or suitable," she says. Hannah also finds her schedule to be an obstacle as she works around 65 or 70 hours a week, so even if the first few dates go well, it ends up being a "catch me if you can" situation.
But, she remains hopeful that she'll meet a "dashing and single human who lives relatively nearby". The good old fashioned organic route to finding love is still proving most successful for those in the farming community. But online dating shouldn't be territory reserved exclusively for the benefit of city dwellers.
