Longford farmers are being challenged to follow hot on the heels of the Calendar Girls and the New York Firefighters as organisers of the Irish Farmer Calendar once again call on farmers across the Country “to man up, go topless and pose for the 2013 edition in association with farming charity Bóthar”.
Christened ‘agri porn’ by Ryan Tubridy, the calendar has attracted orders from the US, Australia, Britain, Germany, Poland and France and has gained an international audience “hungry” to see the charms of local farms.
The 2012 calendar featured hunks of agricultural pulchritude from all over Ireland. Resplendent with their farmers’ tans, they appeared in their full (or at least topless) glory along with horses, a duck, a pig, designer wellies and toy tractors, following the photo shoot on farms in Co Wexford.
Calendar organisers want to hear from Longford’s finest farmers now. “We want them to come on board for 2013 and have some fun in the process,” a spokesperson added.
