Home > About us > Highlight – FarmHer
Women have always been an important but mostly unseen aspect of agriculture and in recent years are rising to the forefront in so many ways; as owner/operators, landowners, workers, mentors and much more. Join us as we bring the image of women in agriculture to life on television through FarmHer.
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.
