Farmer gets creative when proposing to his girlfriend

CALEDONIA, NY (WCMH) — A New York farmer got creative when he popped the big question to his girlfriend.

Dan Stein and Leslie Hamilton are both farmers that began their love story almost two years ago.

“We actually ended up meeting at the local John Deere dealer in Avon. We ran into each other there by accident,” Hamilton told WHAM-TV.

After their romance blossomed, Stein decided it was time to pop the question. So he hopped onto his combine, drove out into his soybean field and put his farming skills to the test.

“Usually you go straight back and forth in a row. I just got really creative and artistic and wrote letters instead of going straight back and forth in the field,” Stein said.

“He was like I don’t know if you can read that, but this is what it says. and I was like Oh my god and he got down on one knee,” Hamilton said.

The two are planning on getting married in 2018.

“I just wanted to do something special for her. It didn’t really matter who saw it and how much recognition I got for it. I just wanted it be special for her,” Stein told WHAM-TV. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
