I frequently get comments like “But you don’t look like a farmer!” And, to be honest, this assumption makes me even more proud that I am a farmer! The agriculture business is changing, and more and more women like myself are leading the charge.
I recently came across this beautiful website called FarmHer.com. Run by Iowa native Marji Guyler-Alaniz, FarmHer is dedicated to showcasing all the amazing work women are doing in the agriculture sphere. As she states in her mission statement “FarmHer is about documenting women in agriculture… When people see an image or idea regularly, they come to believe that it is way that things actually are. By infusing images of women in agriculture into farm imagery we can change the way people perceive a farmer.”
This is certainly a cause I can get behind! Browse the website for beautiful, candid photos of life on the farm, and of the female farmer warriors who get to live that life with me each day!
