American farmer's daughter looking for love in the UK

@davieh3350 Davie's original post was shared around social media to where I came across it and this forum is kinda fun! At age 41, I find myself in a position of looking for a new adventure. Never married, wanting to leave my office job in a wholesale tree and shrub nursery due to a change of ownership after working there for 15 years, maybe crossing the ocean might be what I need! It would be cool to see where my Clun Forest sheep were originally created - any Welsh men reading this? I thoroughly enjoyed visiting North Yorkshire years ago (during the foot-&-mouth disease tragedy), and there's nowhere in the UK that wouldn't thus interest me. Sometimes I think I must live too close to the city, and that's why I haven't found a farmer husband. (Indianapolis) There's still plenty of farmers in the UK, right? Maybe smaller farms, but I'm looking for lifestyle, not vast acreage.
Anyone interested in getting to know an American? My parents still maintain an Angus herd they started before I was born, but with my brother to take over, I've always worked off the farm. That allowed me to attend college in the sagebrush country side of Montana, spend a year as a zookeeper, even a couple months as part of a custom wheat harvest crew on the western Plains. Have settled on my own few acres with a handful of sheep and my full time job for 15 years, and it's just time for new friends and new adventures!

I really do hope that you find what you're looking for. Speaking as a "mature" woman I know only how hard it can be to find the person you most want. There are some good guys on here, really. Don't give up on American guys tho, they can be real darlings, at times, you never know... You may meet someone near to you someday, who is everything you could wish for. Ofc no relationship is or can be perfect, but they can be real beautiful at times. I wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart! :)

Thanks for the encouragement! I was too shy when I was in college in Montana to talk to any of the rodeo guys then, and now I think I'm in the wrong area - within a half hour of Indianapolis - to find an unmarried farmer. Farmland's getting built up fast, too, turning into businesses and subdivisions - depressing. Landscape industry is thriving, and a few landscapers have caught my eye, but I can't flirt too much because they are customers. I don't really care what country I find someone in, but just feel that perhaps now it's time to look a little farther afield! :)

I think it's great what your trying to do, I think everyone needs to get out of their comfort zone and try something new from time to time. I my self am in the U.S (kansas) and I am making a move to New Zealand in the same hopes as you, trying to find someone and a change of scenery. I wish you luck on your journey and I hope you find someone soon!.

Written by John Swire

Shepherds are being urged to feed newborn surplus lambs more good quality colostrum during the crucial first 24 hours of life because up to 80% of UK sheep producers may not be feeding enough.

According to results from the annual Volac Lamlac surplus lamb rearing intentions survey, carried out at the end of 2019, only 20% of shepherds plan to feed the industry recommended...
