WHAT THEY SAY: Instead of asking what your astrological sign is, at FarmersOnly.com I ask if you raise or breed alpacas, horses, cattle, chickens, dogs, goats, rabbits, sheep, grow crops, or if you're an organic farmer, student farmer, cowboy, cowgirl, or just a farmer wanna be! How many singles sites do that?
Watch the CNN new story video about FarmersOnly.com dating service here.
WHAT WE FOUND: Free to join with a 6 page simple
registration process (you only have to complete the mandatory 3 pages if
you want) helps to get you into the database of singles and ready to
meet others that share your out-of-town, on-the-farm lifestyle. You'll
like step two, which is nothing I've ever seen before... I guess I'm an
urbanite, not a dairy farmer, someone that raises goats or any other
farming occupation. There is a "farmer wannabe" option, so you'll be
just fine if you don't live on a farm right now. Remember to, at the
very least, post your photo as you'll be reminded a few times through
the process of joining this service, people with photos in their profile
get a lot more emails... don't get shut out... ask a friend if needed to
get your face into your computer for uploading.
The final step (step 6) reveals how FarmersOnly.com works, line by line, simple computer matchmaking. So, for the most part, be honest, painfully honest, and only leave out what you'd like to remain private if you want to be meeting a lot of compatible people here, to date an possibly share your life with. The questions and answers are easily completed, don't sweat it.
There is currently, at the time of review, just over 100,000 members, which is pretty good for such a niche service as this, so take your time, send and answer emails, and don't be disappointed if it takes more than a few months to find someone you really like here.
Once you've finished the 6 steps of registration you'll need to login again, I hope you wrote down or saved your member name and password, there is an instant confirmation email sent but you don't want to wait those extra seconds, do you?
The member searches offered are rather basic, but still useful: Search by age, gender and location; search by member name and,; search using detailed options.
This is a service that is only as good as you make it.
We like the options of saving members to a favorites list (My Friends), the ability to see the last 50 members that have viewed your profile, of being able to block specific members from viewing your profile and contacting you, and pausing as well as deleting your profile from the service.
Overall, a well designed service for a specific lifestyle that has not yet been well served by the larger online dating services.
WHAT YOU'LL FIND: Straight and same sex personals. You don't have to be a farmer but don't expect too many people to move to the city for you should you find someone you really like. This isn't "Green Acres" you know. Premium membership allows you to contact other members and does not automatically renew.
Free 3 day premium membership.

Message: I have a paid membership at Farmersonly and have found the site to be an absolute scam---
They boast of a 150,000 member registration yet there are never more than 100 people online.
I wrote a profile following their guide
lines of what is/is not allowed. They removed it because I included my TRUTHFUL assessment of their site. So, freedom of speech is not allowed at farmersonly.com
Nigerian scammers have flooded the site and no matter how ridiculous their profiles are always approved , of course, to make it appear the site is huge.
They stole my money, and removed my profile. I WILL PURSUE MY COMPLAINT WITH THE BBB.
