Women Managing the Farm is a comprehensive program for farm owners, partners, and rookies. No matter the amount of knowledge about or involvement in agriculture, the Women Managing the Farm" project is specially designed for women in agriculture. Women Managing the Farm provides valuable tools and materials to address production, price, human, financial, and legal risks of farm women at all levels. This project develops and presents tools especially for farm women to increase overall support through various avenues such as comprehensive training, area networks of support and an online discussion group.
The project builds upon the knowledge that farm women do play an active role in all aspects of financial and risk management of the farm. The changing dynamics and economics of the farm operation and the farm household lead to the changing roles women play on the farm today.
The goal of this project is to prepare modern farm women with resources to enable them to utilize and manage their farm interests effectively. The project helps farm women to be successfully prepared to participate in multiple farm roles by having the training, risk management tools, and professional resources available to them.
