Farmer takes stock of local love scene

COOPERS Shoot farmer Murray Deane will watch the third television series of The Farmer Wants a Wife, but the single 20-year-old prefers to stay out of the limelight when it comes to looking for love.

“After watching some of the last series I thought it was a good way for farmers out west to find a lady,” Mr Deane said.

“The social scene is better around this area, so I don't think local single farmers will find it too difficult to meet their match.”

Mr Deane, who works at the Lismore saleyards, said his four hectares at Coopers Shoot took up most of his time.

“Working as a farmer keeps me busy, but I do hope to find someone nice to settle down with,” he said.

The Nine Network is now casting farmers for the third series of The Farmer Wants a Wife.

The show, which is not a competition, follows the story of Australian farmers meeting new women, exploring new relationships and trying to find their soul mate.

Producers are searching nationally for farmers aged between 25 and 45 who are looking to find love.
