100% Irish beef, hoping to make its way into your kitchen very soon.

If you're a fiend for a topless man in wellies cuddling a lamb, you may have previously thought there was no way for you to scratch that very specific, agri-centric itch.

But there's no need to fret, there's an assortment of images out there for you - all neatly bundled up within the 2024 Irish Farmer's Calendar.

A consistently popular purchase among Irish audiences, the calendar is now in its 14th year and has you covered in terms of hunky men serenading sheep, bathing with horses and reading up on sex tips.

You may be thinking that round up sounds like a version of two truths and a lie, but we can assure you they all feature - As Messrs December, April and July respectively.

Frequent purchasers of the calendar will know there are certain tropes that feature every year - there needs to be at least one lad cosying up to a fluffle of rabbits, and paddy caps are usually a requisite for all participants. We're happy to report, this year's offering has delivered in all categories.


The 2024 Irish Farmer's Calendar is available to purchase now for a mere €12.99, with worldwide postage available. To nab yours, head to the Farmer Calendar website.
