We all the farming and ranching is 24/7 kinda of job! Chris Soules aka Prince Farming from The Bachelor gave us a look into what the “dating” scene is for a farmer in rural Iowa! Personally I’d love to live on a farm in the middle of know where!
But unfortunately for most ladies that’s not always the case.
So this morning I was flipping through Facebook when I came across an article on AG Daily talking about dating a farmer. It was awesome and so true.

If you ever hit a rough patch, know that you’re not alone. All relationships take work, but dating a farmer can have special challenges. Here are a few of those challenges and how to overcome them, with a few tips of advice:
