Editor's Note: While my family is a few generations off the farm by now, I've always appreciated rural life. In 1997, my friend Patricia and I started work on our 1999 Bachelor Farmer's of Ireland Calendar. Not a money maker...and I have a stack or two still in my basement but it was an awesome experience doing our part to turn around the fate of Ireland's family farms. To our credit, Mr. June found a bride and he was the only one who really was in it for love. :-)
