Farmers pose naked for calendar and charity

Male & female Scottish farmers strip for calendar supporting mental health.

By Andrew Joseph,

Scottish farmers sure aren’t skittish.

In an effort to raise money to help a charity that deals with rural community mental health concerns, young Scottish farmers volunteered to strip naked for cheeky poses in the Young Farmers Naked Calendar 2022.

Done during the warmer months of June thru October 2021, the farmers bared all (sorta mostly – no Full Monty) for the RSABI, a Scottish charity dedicated to the relief of hardship and poverty amongst people who have depended on land for their livelihood.

The charity was founded as the Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RSABI) in 1897 to mark Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and in recognition of the deep agricultural depression at the time.

Of the £12 (~CDN $20.50) calendar cost, 80 percent will go to the RSABI, with the remaining 20 percent going to help run events for young farmers.

Organized by the Lothian and Peeblesshire Young Farmers Club in Scotland, keeps it clean in its back-to-nature photos of the farm workers in their environment—but covered with, for example, seed bags and saddles. The farmer models—male and female—range in age from 22-27.   

Some of the RSABI charity work, is working with those who have mental health issues within the rural ag community—the Young Farmers Club noted it had seen some of its own members go through difficult times.

We are taking students out to southern Manitoba to Hespler Farms! Farmer Wayne will teach students how he plants and cares for his potato crop and why potatoes are such a unique crop to grow. Teachers, check out your AITC Dashboard for Math'd Potatoes, a potato-themed classroom resource to pair with this tour video. Thank you to Peak of the Market and Penner Farm Services for making this event possible.

I am not sure? I hope to raise $5,000.00 going door to door for my annual "Walk for Alzheimers" for Grey/Bruce and Huron Counties before the end of May. This would give me a grand total of $100,000.00 in 12 years of collecting for Alzheimers but I never ever thought of "a new twist" - I am not sure? I have to admit though 40 years ago when my wife & I started raising money through charity slo pitch ball tournaments you are always looking for something new.
