Farmer Wants a Wife is due to return next year for season 11, with a crop of six new farmers trying to find the woman of their dreams! Hopefully this year gives us more success stories — like Farmer Neil and Justine, and Farmer Alex and his runner-up Henrietta.
While concrete information is sparse as we’re still months away from the premiere, we’ve pulled together everything we know now about the return of Farmer Wants a Wife in 2021.
Who are the farmers looking for love on Farmer Wants a Wife season 11?
The farmers already announced for Farmer Wants a Wife 2021 are Farmer Matt, a 26-year-old beef and fodder farmer from Victoria; Farmer Pete, a 29-year-old grain and forage crops farmer from Queensland; Farmer Rob, a 40-year-old sheep and cattle farmer from NSW; Farmer Sam, a 24-year-old sheep and crops farmer from NSW; Farmer Will, a 39-year-old sheep and cattle farmer from Victoria; and Farmer Andrew, a 30-year-old sheep farmer from NSW.

Who are the women looking for love on Farmer Wants a Wife season 11?
The cast for the upcoming season of Farmer Wants a Wife has not been announced, as applications are still open! With 25 babies and nine marriages as a result of the series, it feels like the dating show for someone looking for a long-term, committed relationship!
Who is hosting Farmer Wants a Wife season 11?
Long-time host Natalie Gruzlewski returns for season 11 of Farmer Wants a Wife. “I’m so excited to guide another crop of hard-working Aussie farmers in their search for true love,” she said “As Australia has seen, our farmers and ladies wear their hearts on their sleeves and it’s a privilege to be a part of their life-changing love stories.”
If we expect a format like this year’s, each farmer will meet eight women in the premiere, and choose four to take back to their farms.
How will Farmer Wants a Wife season 11 be different to season 10?
When Farmer Wants a Wife was renewed for 2021 in August, Channel Seven’s Network Programming Director, Angus Ross, promised a “scaled-up” season. The show is expected to include “dream overnight dates, luxury country getaways and spectacular group get-togethers”. Eureka Productions co-CEO, Chris Culvenor, said the season will “ramp up the romance in an even bigger and bolder season” — is it too much to ask that we dial back the drama?
When and where is Farmer Wants a Wife season 11 filmed?
We can expect Farmer Wants a Wife to be shot at the farmers’ country properties — Matt’s is in Orbost, Victoria; Pete’s is in Kingaroy, Queensland; Rob’s is in the Snowy Mountains of NSW; Sam’s is in Canowindra, NSW; Will’s is in Longwood, Victoria; and Andrew’s is in Delegate, NSW.
This year, the first episode of the season, where the farmers met their eight potential partners, was shot in the Hunter Valley of NSW. A farmer’s ball was also shot in Sydney, with the show calling out for extras.
In the application form, contestants were told they would need to be available for six weeks of filming from October to mid-December, with a few extra days in January (presumably for the reunion!).
How has filming for Farmer Wants a Wife season 11 been impacted by coronavirus?
It’s not yet known how Farmer Wants a Wife will be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. State border closures may cause a problem for Farmer Pete, who lives in Queensland, while COVID-19 restrictions in Victoria are likely to affect Matt and Will, as well as any Victorian women thinking of applying for the show. The application form notes that quarantine costs for successful contestants will be paid for by production.
When will Farmer Wants a Wife season 11 premiere?
It’s not known if Farmer Wants a Wife will premiere at a similar time as this year, in late July, or if it will run earlier in the year, in April, when season 10 was originally scheduled to start, before being pushed back due to COVID-19. This year, the show aired on Sundays at 7 p.m. and Mondays at 7:30 p.m on Channel Seven. Stay tuned for updates!
