My sister is good at thinking up marketing angles and she said to me recently, “Farming is the new sexy!” And I got to thinking that yeah, farming is damn sexy. Muscle, sweat and dirt… it doesn’t get much more alluring.
But sometimes when you’re juggling a busy farm schedule it can be hard to keep it sexy enough out there, so I developed this list of tips to help our fellow farmers keep it hot.
1. Tan Lines
2. Crack Appeal
4. Derma care
5. Muscle Tone
When you have a farm to run there’s just not time to sit around looking pretty. The sexy-farm-girl archetype is so completely ridiculous - a woman in cutoff jeans lounging in a hay pile and definitely not pulling her weight around the farm. I think not.
The upswing? I think our culture actually is progressing to the point where farming could be the new sexy, because the new sexy could be about becoming capable and strong and tackling life head on. It could be about working hard to accomplish something that seems impossible at the onset.
And the new sexy could definitely be about loving your body because of what it can do, not how it measures up to a airbrushed idea of beauty. My suggestion for women everywhere: less fashion magazines, more compost pile turning!
