Farmer Wants a Wife star Paige Marsh reveals she did NOT grow up on a farm, but that leaving the big city was the best decision she ever made – even though ‘it’s hard to meet someone’

Farmer Wants a Wife star Paige Marsh spoke about her unusual journey to become a sheep and cattle farmer during an interview on Sunrise on Friday.

The 27-year-old, who was joined by fellow farmers Ben Scowen, Harry Lloyd and Will Simpson, told hosts Natalie Barr and Matt Shirvington that she had only been working the land since 2017, when she moved from Brisbane to Cassilis, in central west NSW.

Although she said moving to the countryside was the best decision she’d ever made, living so remote made it difficult for her to meet the right man.

‘I didn’t grow up on a farm. So I’m from Brisbane. I moved to New South Wales in 2017 and worked at the station there [ever since],’ she said.

Paige, who has five men competing for her heart on Channel Seven’s dating show, works as a station worker on a 12,500-acre estate and couldn’t be happier.

In a recent trailer for FWAW, Paige said she loved her job and certainly “didn’t leave it,” meaning her winning contestant must be willing to leave city life behind.

When Matt, who is filling in for Sunrise host David Koch, asked if it was harder to find love as a farm woman, she said it was easier — but only in theory.

“Technically, you would think it was easier for me because there are generally more men in the industry, but we’re starting to see more women coming through to work in [agriculture]which is great,” she said.

“Anyway, it’s hard to meet someone when you’re in the countryside,” she added.

Fellow farmer Ben has more than just to look out for when he sets out on a journey to find love.
