rock starlets in agriculture: farmher

3

Modern Farmer, which by the way is a GREAT agricultural magazine, shared a story about a new TV show, its inception, and origins.  “FarmHer” will begin airing 26 episodes this September, featuring women like Colorado farmer Jennifer Edwards, who started a food truck that uses her farm’s bounty, and Pam Lunn, an urban goat farmer in Florida.

Women have always been an important but mostly unseen aspect of agriculture.  In recent years, women are rising to the forefront of agriculture in so many ways; as owner/operators, landowners, workers, mentors and much more. 

FarmHer was founded in 2013 to begin to change the image of agriculture – to include women in that image through photographs and stories.  It quickly became clear that women in agriculture not only appreciated FarmHer, but they needed it.  And they asked for more. 

Today, FarmHer has grown into not just a gallery of images that are changing the way people perceive a farmer, but also into an online community built just for women in agriculture.  This community is a place where this imperative group of women can experience stories about others like them.  A place where they can connect with and learn from others in a safe and positive environment.  A place where women rise to the forefront of agriculture. 

Join the journey and be part of the FarmHer movement today!
