Meet Ben Andrews. He’s a farmer from Herefordshire, U.K. who reached out to Queerty after seeing our post about the secret world of gay farmers.

“I was born and raised on a farm,” Ben tells us. “I work with my parents on the family farm my great grandfather first started.”

Ben and his husband John have been together for 12 years and live on his family’s 450-acre farm, where they rear beef cattle and grow kale and lettuce.

Thanks to social media, Ben says he’s met “quite a few” gay farmers.

“I’ve actually made contact with more gay farmers all over the world on Instagram than in real life,” Ben says. “It’s amazing how many of us are out there!”
