Women in Ag: Female Farmer Perspectives

What comes to mind when you picture a farmer? Odds are you imagine an older white man driving a tractor through rows of corn. This may be true to a degree, but we know this is not representative of the Ag industry as a whole. For our November Speaker Series, we welcome Andie Donnan of Sandhill Farm and April Prusia of Dorothy’s Range who will join us to talk about their farm operations, and their experiences as women in the field.
