A nonprofit, independent media organization dedicated to telling stories of climate solutions and a just future. I met Chris at a rock show, and after three drinks and about twice as many not-too-subtle glances, we introduced ourselves. Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one. We saw each other sporadically over the next three months or so, always in Seattle, and the evening usually ended with him slipping some organic vegetables from his farmers market stock of the week in my purse. But after The Farmer and I settled on being Just Friends, I had the chance to ask him about what romance on the farm actually looks like — over margaritas in the city, of course.

And as young people tend to be discouraged from the long, hard, and not exactly lucrative work of farming, the average age of the American farmer is only rising. As farms have disappeared and consolidated across the country, small towns are clearing out in favor of big cities — shrinking the rural dating pool considerably.

I set out to get a real idea of whether farmers encounter more or different hardships in the dating game than your average single-and-searching, and talked with six farmers of different ages, sexual orientations, and farming backgrounds and approaches across the country. Can you tell me a little bit about your experiences trying to meet women in the area around your farm? I can really focus and not be hungover all the time.

When I graduated [from college] I found a job at a ranch in Montana where she happened to be working. We hit it off pretty immediately and were kind of together that summer. My farm and my family land here means a lot to me, obviously, I decided to come back to it. But I think that the older you get, the financial reality of everything starts to set in, and what becomes more important is your ability to make a living and support yourself. So if I can prove that I can do that through doing something really innovative like this, that would be great.

I — ha, this is such a typical answer. Looking for a farmer girl read Walden by Henry David Thoreau, and I thought, yes, I want to learn how to be self-sufficient, I want to learn to grow my own food. By the end of my second week here, I was going crazy and feeling really lonely. I really needed to be around people my age — I needed someone to talk to and to make some new friends.

What would you say has been your best OKCupid experience since moving out there? And I drove out to meet them one night and they seemed really great, we got along really well. We went for a walk in the woods, they cut their own hair, I cut my own hair. No, sorry, we talked about how we each cut our own hair. So we hung out and talked, and that was really nice. Probably my worst experience would be with the person who I had the best OKCupid experience with. And so that was a bad experience.

They were pretty horrified, and they expressed anger that somebody would keep cows in that situation. They got me to question my own complicity in working with the same organization that, as a side project, also runs this CAFO. Yeah, they were upset. Do you feel like you were able to have any kind of productive conversation with them about the realities of farming?

No, no definitely not. We went to college together, he was also in the school of ag. And weirdly enough, he was the first cowboy I had ever dated. It seemed like they were all just friends, you know? It was easy to talk to him about the problems with ranching. And I think it was nice for him to date someone who got it as well.

But at the same time, breaking up because we each wanted to be on our own ranch was extremely traumatic at the time. He really, really wanted me to [move to his ranch]. I just knew that there was no way. I love traveling and all that, but this is my home, you know?

Poor guy, he gets recruited for lots of stuff. He just got his own horse last year and he never had one before. Last year was pretty fun because he got to pull his first calf, and he was kind of grossed out — it was all slimy. But he did really well. That was a short but nice piece of luck, basically. No, but she actually got pretty into it, and would come and help us weed vegetables and stuff. She was into it enough to not be horrified that I was taking her to a trailer, literally, parked next to a river.

In terms of future relationships, and looking for long-term relationships, is it important for you to date another farmer? On principle, not really. In high school, yes, I did. It was … they were fun.

There is none, I guess? Is it important to you to date somebody with an interest in and understanding of farming?

That understanding is kind of a basis, a non-negotiable. Totally, absolutely. Because I want to have a family farm, and I want to have a family on a farm, and I want to raise a kid or two on the farm. I just love farming.
