Fox has announced Ryan Black, Allen Foster, Hunter Grayson and Landon Heaton will be the four farmers looking for love when the network's new revival of Farmer Wants a Wife premieres with a one-hour episode on Wednesday, March 8 at 9PM ET/PT.
Hunter is a 31-year-old cattle and horse rancher from Watkinsville, GA. He works on a 200-acre ranch and attended college at Northeastern Oklahoma and Athens Technical College.
Hunter's interests include team roping, free dive spearfishing, and singing in his band "Hunter Grayson & The Hat Creek Band."
Ryan is a 32-year-old horse trainer and breeder from Shelby, NC, who currently resides in Gastonia, NC. He works a 44-acre ranch.
Ryan attended University of North Carolina at Charlotte and enjoys training and competing horses as well as designing and building homes.
Landon is a 35-year-old cattle rancher and farmer from Alva, OK, who currently resides in Stillwater, OK.
Landon tends to a 300-acre Cattle Ranch, a 300-acre farmland, and a 40-acre farmhouse property.
The Oklahoma State University grad likes to bow hunt, cook, and train retrievers.
And Allen is a 32-year-old cattle rancher from Williamsport, TN, who currently resides in Santa Fe, TN.
Allen, who works a 200-acre ranch, studied at the University of Tennessee at Martin. He's an avid hunter and fisher who also enjoys riding horses and driving ATVs.
Fox's Farmer Wants a Wife revival will follow the four farmers as they each host a group of single women who chose to "leave behind the comfort and convenience of city life for the charms and challenges of country living," according to the network.
The reality dating show, hosted by singer and actress Jennifer Nettles, will begin with the farmers and women meeting each other and mutually selecting one another.

The women will then be invited to experience life on their respective farm.
The Farmer Wants a Wifebachelors will teach their bachelorettes real skills for working on a farm -- including tending to the land, feeding cattle, and baling hay. The women will also learn business operations.
"For the ladies, the reality of this way of living may beg the question: how far are you willing to go for love?" Fox has teased of the show.
"Together, with the hope of finding their ever-after, they endeavor to discover the beauty, humor, trials and romance that come with finding the one."
But The CW's version of Farmer Wants a Wife -- which only starred a single farmer, Matt Neustadt, a corn, wheat and soybean farmer who lived in Portage Des Sioux, MO -- failed to draw viewers and only lasted a single season on the network.
The reality format, owned by Fremantle, has enjoyed far greater success overseas, however. Local editions have aired in 32 countries over the years and resulted in 180 marriages and 410 children, according to Fox.
Farmer Wants a Wife is the latest in a series of early 2000s American reality shows that have been revived in recent years, joining a list that includes Joe Millionaire (revived by Fox), The Mole (Netflix), Paradise Hotel (also Fox), and Temptation Island (USA Network).
Fox had announced it was reviving Farmer Wants a Wife and that Jennifer would serve as the show's host in December.
"Bringing the worldâ€™s most popular dating show to FOX requires a superstar host to match," Fox Entertainment Allison Wallach said in a statement at the time, "and we found the perfect pairing in Jennifer, a multi-talented entertainer who's a little country, a little big city and huge on heart and humor, making her the perfect choice for wrangling romance in the heartland."
Farmer Wants a Wife is being produced by Eureka Productions, which was also behind Fox's recent The Real Dirty Dancing reality series that featured The Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron and Netflix's The Mole revival, among numerous other reality TV series.
