Boer Soek ‘n Vrou: Meet the men and women looking for real love

Renate Engelbrecht

The 14th season of the famous Afrikaans match-making series' farmers have been revealed and you’ll be smitten!

Boer Soek ‘n Vrou has been on the tellie for thirteen seasons now and the 14th season comes with a lot of promise.

This year’s farmers are aged between 23 and 53 and while there are farmers from across the country, most of the entrants are from the Free State. There is also a female farmer, Mary-Lou from Paarl.

Marciel Hopkins, the presenter of the 14th season says she is rooting for Mary-Lou and she is very excited to see what the outcome will be. Hopkins also says the group of farmers that have been chosen include a wide variety of personality types and every farmer is unique and special in their own way.

Hopkins says Covid-19 had a big impact on the way things were done in season 13, but the 14th season of Boer Soek ‘n Vrou is back to normal (with all the necessary Covid-19 protocols in place). While last year saw digital letters, this year allows for hand-written letters and packages.

The season will include 13 episodes, allowing viewers to follow the farmers’ journeys to finding love. As per usual, the 13 episodes will focus on the five farmers who received the most letters.
