Longwood farmer seeking love on TV

By Geoff Adams

A 39-year-old Longwood farmer named Will is one of the new contestants in the television series Farmer Wants a Wife.

Will, according to his profile, has travelled extensively, enjoys extreme sports and the company of animals, and has not been able to find a long-term partner.

The Channel 7 profile says the cattle and sheep farmer is looking for an honest, independent, light-hearted, fit and healthy woman.

“I am honest and energetic, love a party, but I also very much enjoy my downtime. I much prefer to be outside than indoors, I love almost all animals, I’m just a pretty normal, down-to-earth bloke really,” his profile says.

Will also describes himself as easy-going.

The 2020 Farmer Wants a Wife program recently concluded, with only two matches out of the five that started.

The show attempts to find matches for up to five men, starting from a field of about 40 women.

Other farmers in the new series are from Orbost, NSW and Queensland.
