Farm women are generating a cultural tide in American agriculture that is moving management, assets and opportunities to a new wave of farmers across the country. At Annie’s Project, farm women become empowered to be better business partners or sole operators through networks and by managing and organizing critical information.

Annie’s Project is a discussion-based workshop bringing women together to learn from experts in production, financial management, human resources, marketing and the legal field. There’s plenty of time for questions, sharing, reacting and connecting with presenters and fellow participants. It is a relaxed, fun and dynamic way to learn, grow and meet other farm women who are both experienced and beginning.

Whether beginning or experienced, understanding the five areas of agricultural risk, knowing how to analyze agricultural spreadsheets and other necessary skills are vital.
