Farmer Wants A Wife reveals first female farmer for 2022 cast

Channel Seven has introduced a fresh crop of farmers ready to find love, when the third season of Farmer Wants A Wife returns in 2022.

And for the first time since the show was rebooted by Channel 7 in 2019, a female Farmer is joining the search for the 'one'.

Farmer Paige from Cassilis, NSW, is set to appear alongside hopefuls Farmer Ben, Farmer Benjamin, Farmer Harry, Farmer James, and Farmer Will.

Paige is a sheep and cattle farmer and a first-generation farmer. She knew she wanted to be a farmer at age 15 and set out to make it happen. She’s described as independent, confident, warm, chatty and full of determination.

Her ideal partner is honest and driven and shares similar interests like horse riding and camp drafting.

Standing 5’9” herself, Paige prefers guys who are taller. A fellow farmer would be convenient but she’s happy to teach someone new, after all, she came from the city.

Paige is the first-ever female Farmer to appear on the show since it was rebooted by Channel 7 in 2019. Prior to that, Farmer Jenny Blake appeared on season three of the show back in 2008 when the franchise was aired on Channel Nine.

Joining Paige is Farmer Ben, from Wingham, NSW. He is a dairy farmer who wears his heart on his sleeve.

Ben believes in old-fashioned romance and hopes for a long-lasting partnership like he has seen in his parents and grandparents.

Farmer Benjamin is a sheep farmer from Guyra, NSW, and is a a self-proclaimed agricultural enthusiast with a penchant for the ‘creative’.

Crossing the border into Victoria, Dairy farmer Harry, from Kyabram, has a bachelor’s degree in Agribusiness and is currently pursuing Certificate III in Regenerative Agriculture.

Farmer James is a sheep farmer from Tarnook, Victoria. James believes that love is a feeling that grows and flourishes over time. His ideal partner is easy-going, enjoys a laugh, likes to be challenged and doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty. Bonus points if she can drive a tractor.

And Farmer Will, from Berriwillock, is a broadacre and sheep farmer, and describes himself as an upbeat and positive person who loves staying fit and healthy. Family is a very important part of Will’s life.

He is looking for someone who is confident, has respect for themselves and has space for someone else in their life. Will is caring, supportive and respectful of his potential partner’s ambition and choices.

Applications to take part in the show and potentially find love with one of these farmers are now open. Farmer Wants A Wife 2022 will feature five of the six farmers mentioned above.

Host Natalie Gruzlewski will return for the upcoming season, along with surprise addition Samantha Armytage, who joins in a guest role.

Growing up on a farm and now married to a farmer, Samantha believes she is perfectly qualified to help Natalie guide the farmers to find love.

The 2021 season of Farmer Wants A Wife was a massive ratings success with scandals dominating both on and off the screen.
