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."

Just call Ryan the hot horse whisperer.

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.
