Howdy! Do you love The Bachelor and Love Island but think they need a little less "can I pull you for a chat" and a little more "come milk a cow with me"? Well then you'll LOVE Farming for Love -- CTV's new dating show starring five farmers looking for love. 

In Farming For Love, five Canadians searching for their soulmates open up their farms – and their hearts – to a group of urban singles. As they live and work together, daters must adjust to a new lifestyle, and immerse themselves in a series of challenges, group activities, and intimate one-on-one dates with the goal of finding their one true love.

Get to know the five elegible farmers below and tune into Farming for Love Sunday, May 28 at 7pET on CTV.


Age: 34

Hometown: Abbotsford, BC

Type Of Farm: Berry and Agritourism

A 3rd generation farmer, Farmer Gurleen runs and lives on a thriving agritourism business with her entire family. With Farmer Gurleen, her parents, her brothers, and their partners all under one roof, their household is hectic, fun, and always loud! Farmer Gurleen is looking for someone who is not afraid to get their hands dirty during the day - then dress up and enjoy some laughs over dinner and a glass of wine at night.

What is your favourite music, musician, or band?

Some of my favourites are Frank Ocean, City and Color, Bruce Springsteen, and Megan Thee Stallion. I’d say I listen to 20% rap and 80% soft pop/soft rock.

What is your favourite movie and why?

My favourite movie is Rocky. I love Sylvester Stallone and I grew up watching Rocky movies with my dad.



Age: 33

Hometown: Gibons, BC

Type Of Farm: Equestrian Centre

Farmer Ashleigh is a bubbly, fun-loving horse trainer with a passion for animals and the outdoors. Before her grandfather passed away when she was 10, he bought her a horse -- igniting a passion that would drive the rest of her life. After a 10-year relationship fizzled out, and living through a pandemic, Ashleigh has been single for the last four years. Now, she’s looking for someone independent and kind with a great sense of humour. She’s more than ready for love, she just needs the right guy by her side.

What is your favourite music, musician, or band?

Everything. Rap and country. Right now, my favourite songs are "Fall in Love" by Bailey Zimmerman, and "Boppin" by Ktlyn.

What is your favourite movie and why?

I don’t have a favourite movie, but I have favourite TV shows. I really like Yellowstone, Letterkenny, and The Kardashians. When I want to watch something that really chills me out, SpongeBob…still.


Age: 25

Hometown: Chemainus, BC

Type Of Farm: Dairy

Not everyone would give up a professional volleyball career to be a dairy farmer - but that’s exactly what Farmer Doug did! He lives and works on his family’s sweeping 300-acre, solar-powered farm, and can’t get enough of it. Tall, goofy, and athletic, Farmer Doug may be young, but he’s seen many of his friends get married already. He’s looking for a wife who is smart, a travel companion, and wants kids. Farmer Doug is ready to start a family, but he needs to meet his partner first.

What is your favourite music, musician, or band?

When it comes to music I’m pretty easygoing. Some of my favourite artists are Morgan Wallen, Harry Styles, Coldplay, Kygo, Jake Owen, and The Weeknd.

What is your favourite movie and why?

Hot Rod. It’s just a hilarious movie where I can sit back, relax, and not take things too seriously. Always puts a smile on my face. 


Age: 32

Hometown: Comox Valley, BC

Type Of Farm: Livestock and Grain Farmer

Farmer Dave is a self-made success with not one, but two farms. After growing up in Wellington, South Africa, he helped move his entire family over to Canada and set up a thriving agricultural business they now run together. Farmer Dave is passionate about regenerative farming (using low carbon practices), and has thrown his whole self into his career. Now that his business is off and running, he’s ready to look for a kind-hearted woman with a dark sense of humour to complete his life.  

What is your favourite music, musician, or band?

I don’t really have favourites, I pretty much like any good music. I have been on a country kick recently (I’m a farmer and I’ve got cows so, why not?).

What is your favourite movie and why?

Comedy specials are my go-to. Anything that lets me unwind, and relax with a few laughs. 


Age: 25

Hometown: Keremeos. BC

Type Of Farm: Winery

As a second-generation wine producer, where Farmer Charley’s from, it’s always wine-o'clock! Growing up on his parents' winery made Charley ambitious from a young age. He created his first signature Rosé while still in high school -- and it was the first wine to sell out that summer. He also has dreams of expanding the business. Whether it’s hiking in the mountains or a last-minute fishing trip, Charley is spontaneous, adventurous, and looking for a partner who loves the outdoors. Farmer Charley is currently building himself a home on 8 acres, and is looking to fill it with love, kids, and family - he just needs to meet his future wife first!

What is your favourite music, musician, or band?

I like most new music, classic rock, 40s swing, and roaring 20s tunes. I have so much music and my favourites change with my mood, but my overall favourite has to be Johnny Cash.

What is your favourite movie and why?

There are so many good movies to choose from, but my all-time favourite movie is The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Growing up I really enjoyed the old spaghetti westerns.
