All in a day’s work?
Farmer Wants a Wife favourite David McMahon has revealed a scary encounter he had whilst going about daily life on his apple farm in Pozieres, Queensland.
Farmer David, who found love with contestant Emily on the 2023 season of the show, uploaded a picture to his Instagram stories that looks relatively innocent at first glance.

But on closer inspection, all is not as it seems.
“You’re not weed mat,” the farmer captioned the photo, with a sweating face emoji.
Slithering along a weed mat on the ground is a long black snake.
Fortunately it appears as if Farmer David got through his snake encounter unscathed.
It’s not clear if Emily was around when the snake scare unfolded, but she recently revealed that she had “survived” her first winter season on his farm.
She shared four photos from the chilly season on the farm, three hours west of the Gold Coast.
The first photo showed the couple’s dog resting in front of the heater to try and keep warm.
The second was of Emily in the car holding onto a morning coffee as her screen displayed, “Outside temp 1 degree, and the time 8:02am”.
Emily’s other photos were of the orchid and David pouring her a glass of wine in front of a small fire at sunset.
Life appears to be going well for the couple.
On August 20, Emily shared a selfie of herself embracing the farmer in a field of flowers, captioning the post, “Favourite time of the day”.
Fellow former Farmer Wants a Wife star Sophie Holcombe, who has split with her farmer Brenton, commented with a yellow heart emoji.
“I’m so glad you are both so happy, keep photos coming,” another follower said.
“You both look very happy,” agreed another.
“I was a little bit anxious that I really wanted to find, you know, my career and life here,” Emily told 7Life of the move to Pozieres in May.
“I’m just used to my routine and I knew that was going to change but I was excited to get involved with the community here.
“I was really fortunate that things kind of moved quickly, so nothing’s been really that hard.
“Everything has just gone really well.”
