It also claims to already have more than 300,000 active users dotted about the globe – 51% women and 49% men.

The app, he says, was developed out of his personal experience of growing up on a farm, living in a city, and dreaming of meeting what us Irish might dub ‘a lovely girl’.
Dissatisfied with the apps available, Ma says he developed his own, which he launched on the Apple Store.
As the percentage of country dwellers using mobile technology increases, rural singles are increasingly turning to online dating, according to Ma.
Founded just last year, Farmers Match claims to have an equal ratio of men and women users.
Yes, love is amazing and can do great things for you in life and I LOVE my farmer with every ounce of my being. They spend the majority of their day in a tractor cab, eating on the go, and get very little sleep. Your farmer is as close to being "one with the land" as they come. Farmers are community players and they DO help out a neighbor in need. Farmers understand the struggle and are always willing to help a fellow farmer in need. You will learn so much about the ins and outs of farming, even from just dating a farmer.
But that doesn't change the fact that some days, it is hard and a lot more reality filled than e Harmony wants us to believe. The "tanned" part might only apply to their forearms. That doesn't equate to "fit, toned, and tanned".) 3. Embrace it and soak up as much knowledge as you can! Dating a farmer will teach you independence and strength.

It takes a lot of planning because the grocery store is miles and miles away and guess what, you can't just stop there after work, it takes constant cleaning because your house is always dusty or your farmer is always tracking in mud or dirt, it takes doing some of the dirtiest laundry you will ever do in your life because your farmer comes home covered in manure, and it takes learning to do things on your own without your significant other because guess what, he/she will be gone a lot. Even though we can plan out our year on paper, there is a lot of uncertainty in farming.
A new app ‘Farmers Match’ aims to make dating easier for country singles.
Derek Ma, who is based in Silicon Valley, claims the app has already approximately 200 Irish users.
Features include Spark, whereby users swipe left to pass on a potential match and right to indicate a good match. A ‘moments’ feature allows “special points in time to be shared”.
When you live in a rural area, meeting people can be a challenge.
