Wanna dress like a country music star? Look no further than the simple style of Farm Boy and Farm Girl apparel- which country cuties Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood have both been spotted in.

The casual t-shirts, hats and sweatshirts are now available at farm stores nationwide and on the company’s website at http://www.farmboy.us.

The story behind the brand has real rural roots – Minnesota farm boy roots to be exact. The founders, Dan Adamson and Brian Goldenman, have a fond attachment to the small American farm from growing up in the country surrounded by and helping with their family farms. Inspired by great childhood memories of collecting eggs, baling hay and playing in the hayloft, they created the clothing line to celebrate America’s rural heritage.

The seeds for Farm Boy® / Farm Girl™ were planted in 1994, as Adamson, with 15 years of experience in retail design, and Goldenman, with a rich background in sales, sought a way to demonstrate their affection for the American Farmer and display some pride in their own farming connections.

They launched their shirts at a booth at the 2002 Minnesota State Fair and the popularity has grown from there.
The clothing line currently includes tees, sweatshirts, hats, boxers and gift items, but hopes to grow with jeans, sportswear, dress clothes, activewear, underwear, accessories and fragrance for men, women and home.

Interestingly the Farm Boy website includes links to 4-H, FFA and the Minnesota, North Dakota, Iowa, and South Dakota State Fair websites. How’s that for authentic?

The company also currently has a campaign seeking “authentic farm boys and farm girls” for fashion photos and a future calendar. Entrants must be 18 years or older. For more information visit http:// www.farmboy.us or e-mail star@farmboyusa.com.
