German TV crew films Farmer Wants a Wife at Toodyay Market

REALITY TV came to Toodyay last month when a German video crew visited the September 18 Farmers Market to shoot local scenes as a backdrop for the popular international hit show Farmer Wants A Wife.

Cameras and microphones recorded Toodyay resident Tom Kress and two German contestants stroking rescued animals, surrounded by curious onlookers.

Crew members were reluctant to talk because they said it was “confidential”.

However, one said they worked for German TV company RTL and travelled all over the world doing similar work.

Australia’s SBS Channel advertises Farmer Wants a Wife as an international German language TV series.
