Farm and ranch women are generating a cultural tide in American agriculture that is moving management, assets and opportunities to a new wave of farmers across the country. At Annie’s Project courses, farm women become empowered to be better business partners or sole operators through networks and by managing and organizing critical information.

Annie’s Project is a six week discussion-based workshop bringing women together to learn from experts in production, financial management, human resources, marketing and the legal field. There's plenty of time for questions, sharing, reacting and connecting with presenters and fellow participants.

Whether new or experienced, understanding the five areas of agricultural risk, knowing how to analyze agricultural spreadsheets and other necessary skills are vital. Learning them in a friendly environment where questions and discussion are welcomed allows the learning process to flourish.

Annie’s Project courses have successfully reached more than 9,000 farm and ranch women in 33 states. The next one in this area begins Oct. 9 in Flasher.

The cost is $125 per person, which includes a workbook and support materials for all sessions. A light supper will be served before each class at 6 pm. Course size is limited; the registration deadline is Sept. 28.
