Farmer Wants a Wife Australia 2022’s Farmer Benjamin Jackson found fame when a video he made in August 2021 went viral.
The sheep farmer from Guyra paid the ultimate homage to his aunt — who had died from cancer — by creating a stunning love heart made from, well, sheep.
At the time, Benjamin said he had felt “hopeless”, so he decided to honour her with his animals.
The video of the touching gesture went viral, making local and international news at the time, even being featured in The Washington Post.
“My Aunty Deb had one of the biggest hearts known to me,” he told the publication. “Why not try to make a heart that showed how big it was?
“I think one of the reasons it has resonated is that we all need to give each other a virtual hug.”

Prior to this, the 33-year-old shared another video, backing the NSW Blues before the 2019 State of Origin.
Before the match, he distributed his flock’s daily feed into a huge “GO BLUES” formation, making headlines across the country.
At the time, Guyra was stricken by drought, and by doing this, it had the potential to “highlight how tough it really is to a broader community.”
“State of Origin, and in fact sport in general, is a fantastic circuit breaker for everyone. For 80 minutes, you are not thinking about drought,” he told the Canberra Times.
Since then, he has also written “AC/DC”, “Kip”, and “Billie” using his animals.
