In case you missed it, the P-D's Gail Pennington had an update in her column on Matt Neustadt, the St. Charles County farmer who was featured in the CW network show "Farmer Wants a Wife" last summer. The show was filmed in Portage des Sioux, where he courted "city women" on camera and ultimately chose fan-favorite Brooke Ward as his bride.
Gail says Ward moved into an apartment in New Town in St. Charles for a couple of months but then returned to Texas. Neustadt continues to farm, and he'll again participate in the Big Kahuna Celebrity Bartender Challenge, set for July 23 at Side Pockets in St. Charles. Last year, Brooke was by his side.
