Tired of city life? Looking for love? Ever dreamt of your own story on an African farm? Then tune into kykNET on Monday, 14 July at 20h00 when the candidates of the channel's new reality show Boer Soek ‘n Vrou will be announced.

kykNET has selected 10 single, energetic and dynamic farmers from 200 entries to participate in the show. The candidates will be introduced on Monday night, as well as in next week’s issues of Landbouweekblad and Huisgenoot.

Based on the international reality format Farmer Wants A Wife, the show aims to matchmake couples with the idea of everyone hooking up - preferebly in pairs of two.

The key matchmaker of show will be Elma Postma, who'll also be presenting.

Elma's already met all 10 farmers and seems impressed.

“I think there is a farmer for every woman’s taste," she says. "There are true gems, hidden all over our country. They are handsome, intelligent and have hearts of gold.”

Theo Erasmus, kykNET’s general manager, says Boer Soek ‘n Vrou will bring a new dimension to reality TV. “We would like to find a life partner for each of our farmers. This series will be filmed with compassion and we believe that these farmers’ search for someone to love will enthrall viewers."

Following Monday night’s introduction, single South Africans will have two weeks to write a romantic loveletter to the farmer of their choice.

The closing date for the letters is 28 July 2008. Based on the latters they recieve, each farmer will choose 10 potential partners who they'll get to know better through the show.

Entry details will be available from Monday night on and in Landbouweekblad and Huisgenoot.

The introductory show will be repeated on these days at these times:

Tuesday 15 July at 14h00
Wednesday 16 July at 09h30
Thursday 17 July at 00h30 and 18h00
Friday 18 July at 13h30
Saturday 19 July at 07h00

The idea of a man in khaki short with soccer socks and Catterpillar bootes and long untidy beard is just not appelling.Haai man!

It sounds like some of you ladies don't know boere men at all......they may wear kakies and be strict, however they carry their woman on their hands and will not think anything of being called to the kitchen and peeling patatoes, or changing a napy....where continental men do!!
