The Irish Farmer Calendar 2020 - which features a selection of farmers, to raise money for charity - is now available to purchase.
The calendar - now in its eleventh year - features hunks of agricultural charm from Kilkenny, Carlow, Dublin, Limerick, Tipperary and Down.
Resplendent with their farmers’ tans, they appear in their full (or at least topless) glory along with a goat, horses, a chick, dogs, fish and pumpkins.
The calendar - which supports Bóthar - was shot on Corballis Farm, Donabate in Dublin, The Hazel House Craft Café and Pet Farm in Tibradden, Rathfarmham in Dublin and Nore Valley Park Pet Farm in Kilkenny.
Bóthar enables families and communities worldwide to overcome hunger and poverty and to restore the environment in a sustainable way.
They specialise in improved livestock production and support related training and community development and educate the public in Ireland about global poverty.
The calendar series has previously beaten One Direction, Conor McGregor and Justin Bieber in the calendar charts and achieved international recognition with ‘Irish Farmers’ the book, published by McMillan (Dan Brown, Jackie Collins publisher) in the US.
Christened “agri porn” by Irish television’s Ryan Tubridy, the calendar has received orders from the US, Australia, UK, Germany, Poland and France, Hong Kong and South Africa, according to its creator.
Creator of the calendar series, Ciara Ryan, says that interest in the calendar this year is far exceeding previous years and the feedback has been tremendous. “The first order for the 2020 calendar came from Alberta, Canada, which was followed by orders from the US, Japan, Russia, UK, Italy and France,” she said.
The calendar can be purchased here.
