Cover girl for “Modern Wheelbarrow” magazine?
Did you hear the one about the Bavarian farmer’s daughter who posed for a calendar? No, really, she did. Every year a bunch of farm chicks pose for a Young Farmers’ calendar, which is an immediate sell-out.
Katharina, one of the models, explains that the purpose is to show how modern the industry is. “The calendar shows today’s farming – not what it was like in the old days,” she says.
I get it. That must be why our photos and video from the shoot show the models in a wheelbarrow, posing with cows, chopping wood with a big ax – all that newfangled farm stuff that shows they’re not building Roman aqueducts anymore.
