Dating for farmers only
One success story promoted by Farmers Only is about a woman named Elizabeth, a teacher from Alabama, who met her love match, Artie, on the site in 2012 and moved to Colorado last year to start a life with him.Farmers Only did not release the couple’s last names for privacy reasons.“My friend was on there and told me about it and I thought it just narrowed it down to a type of person that I would like to spend my life with,” Elizabeth said in a press release.
It's an online love story that Farmers Only founder, Jerry Miller, is hoping to see more of in Canada."There's two different types of people," Miller says from his office in Pepper Pike, Ohio."There's people in the major cities in the corporate rat race.

Or the animated American Gothic couple saying, (him) “We used to be lonely…” (then her) “until we met on Farmers Only.”Perhaps it’s the homespun feel of the commercial that has been airing across Alabama in recent months, but the initial reaction from viewers is typically: “We’ll see posts (on social media) where people say, ‘I didn’t think it was real but I checked out the site and it is real,’” said Jerry Miller of Ohio, founder of the dating site for farmers and “down-to-earth” people.
And its purpose is right there in its slogan: “City Folks Just Don’t Get It.”Miller said the site, which he founded in 2005, has more than doubled in membership in the past year, reaching “well over” 1 million subscribers nationwide.
