Whether it's International Women's Day or just a regular day, we
love celebrating women in agriculture. Women in agriculture might
seem like a minority, but the numbers grow every year and they are
a force to be reckoned with. Today we are celebrating women in ag
with some of our favorites:
Sara: A corn and soybean farmer in Minnesota,
who believes it's okay for women to farm...and to wear makeup!
Rebecca: Single mom, Texas farm girl and
children's book author. Losing her husband tragically has led her
to a second passion for writing. She is quite an inspiration.
Katie: Married to a seventh-generation farmer,
Katie farms in Illinois, raises a family and advocates for
Krista: Also known as the Farmer's Wifee,
Krista is a mom, dairy farmer and advocate for farm women and farm
Shauna: Shauna and her husband, a fourth
generation farmer are keeping the tradition alive by raising the
5th generation, their teenage daughter and son on Farver Farms in
Kaitlyn: After spending her childhood in
agriculture, she is now farming in Texas with her husband.
BreeAnn: BreeAnn is no stranger to skepticism
as a woman in ag, but she faces it head on as a part of her
family's business, Brinkley Auctions, Oklahoma's largest tractor
and farm machinery auction!
Sarah: A nurse in Canada married to a farmer,
Sarah found her voice advocating for ag and raising her two
(soon-to-be three) kiddos. When she is not at the hospital, she
helps her husband's family raise wheat, canola and peas.
Kelly: Kelly and her husband farm in Northern
Indiana, which is a dream come true after growing up on her
father's horse farm. Kelly likes to get in touch with her tomboy
side and play in the dirt. When she isn't farming, Kelly is
photographing old barns.
Tracy: Tracy is a custom harvester from
Nebraska who spends all of harvest season traveling the country
with her family/harvesting crew.
