Farmer Wants a Wife is a reality television series that matches farmers with potential partners. The show originated in the United Kingdom in 2001 before being picked up for adaptations in multiple countries around the world, including Australia, Germany, Norway, and the United States.

The format of Farmer Wants a Wife involves a group of farmers being introduced to a group of women from the city. Each farmer gets to select their favorite women to take back to their farms and continue dating. The women experience life on the farm and at the end of the season, the farmer chooses one woman to continue a relationship with.

The Australian version of Farmer Wants a Wife premiered in 2007 on the Nine Network. Hosted by Natalie Gruzlewski, the show has run for ten seasons as of 2022. Applications are open to women across Australia and New Zealand to date the farmers. The women spend around one week on the farms before the farmer selects his final choices to continue dating. At the end of the season, each farmer reveals whether he has found love and proposes to his final pick.

Farmer Wants a Wife provides an inside look at life on Australian farms. Viewers get to see remote rural properties and the day-to-day operations involved in running them. The show highlights the challenges farmers face living in isolated areas with a small population pool to date from. Women from the city experience riding motorbikes, mustering cattle, and other tasks required on farms.

A major focus of the show is overcoming preconceived notions about farmers. The women are initially surprised by the handsomeness and eligibility of the male farmers. And the farmers get insight into what modern professional women from urban areas are looking for in a partner and life.

At its core, Farmer Wants a Wife is about making love connections. The show manages to blend romance and the search for a soulmate with an educational look at outback farm life. It highlights the importance of hard work and dedication required in agriculture. And it shows that love can bloom even in the most remote locations. While not every farmer finds everlasting love, the series has led to several marriages, babies, and lasting relationships.

Farmer Wants a Wife is a series that is currently running and has 12 seasons (57 episodes). The series first aired on April 30, 2008.
