Ryan is one of the four farmers looking for love. Giddy-up, y'all, because we're going to learn a lot more about what makes Ryan such a catch, on and off the farm!
Let's start with the basics — Ryan, 32, is a third-generation farmer who wants nothing more than to lasso up the love of his life on Farmer Wants a Wife.
So where is Ryan from? Where does he live now? What does he do specifically for a living on his farm? What's his idea of chivalry? Let's find out all the details.
Where is 'Farm Wants a Wife' star Ryan Black from? Where does he live now?
Ryan hails from the town of Shelby in North Carolina. According to a report from Axios Charlotte, Ryan's family owns a wide assortment of farms across the state of North Carolina.
The Farmer Wants a Wife star currently resides in Gastonia, N.C., which is just about a half-hour drive from Ryan's hometown of Shelby.
Ryan told Axios Charlotte that it's not a challenge for him to find women to date in Charlotte; however, he wisely noted, "There’s a certain attraction to cowboys. The complicated part is finding the connection instead of infatuation."
What does 'Farmer Wants a Wife' star Ryan Black do for a living?
He studied at UNC North Carolina, and currently specializes in training and breeding horses on his — get this — 44-acre ranch. What's better than a man who loves animals?
A man with a big ranch, that's what! (Not that that's the top priority when searching for a spouse, of course! True love is better than spacious acreage!)

Ryan does view himself as a chivalrous man, telling Axios Charlotte, "One of the most chivalrous things a man can do, it may sound deeper and it’s really not, is listening. Just listening and paying attention goes a long way,"
His favorite first-date spot outside of the farm is The Eagle Food and Beer Hall in Charlotte, on the strength of their maple bacon alone.
