February 14, 2011 A website I couldn’t help but share today, Valentine’s Day, whose sole purpose is to connect farmers and down-to-earth singles. It’s called FarmersOnly.com and was started by Jerry Miller in 2005.
“FarmersOnly.com is the brainchild of Jerry Miller who has done marketing and public relations for thousands of farms and ranches across the country. While talking to one farmer, Jerry made quite a discovery.
“Recently divorced, she expressed her frustration of how difficult it was to meet someone new,” Jerry recalled.
“I’m ready to give up!” She said. “How am I going to meet someone working on a farm all day? I already know everybody who lives around here… which isn’t many people! Maybe I’ll try online dating.”
She signed up on one of the biggest national dating sites soon after their conversation.
A month later, Jerry asked her how her luck was with online dating. She replied, even more frustrated, “The men who have been contacting me don’t understand the lifestyle of a farmer,” she told Jerry. “They don’t have a clue!” This would later lead to the site’s slogan. “City Folks Just Don’t Get It!”
