Adding value to your business may prove all-important in the years ahead as agriculture moves into a new era.
In our all-new Spring season of Talking Heads episodes, the Women In Farming Network brings you more fascinating insights from rural women at the helm of diverse businesses in the Yorkshire countryside.
The series, first launched last Autumn 2020, shares honest accounts of entrepreneurialism and all the challenges along the way, from a varied collection of rural voices across the county.
It’s a chance to hear real-life accounts of what it takes to realise ambitions, overcome obstacles and even some tips on who you might to turn to for help along your own career journey.
Self-shot on-location, these short episodes are captured in a refreshingly raw format by individuals who have kindly given their time to support Women In Farming.
Each episode is shared first with members of the Yorkshire Women In Farming Facebook community before going out to a wider audience via the Yorkshire Agricultural Society website and social media channels.

The WIF network is supported by YAS and the Yorkshire Rural Support Network. The Network brought forward its plans to launch a membership-only Facebook group in April 2020 to better connect rural women as the coronavirus pandemic disrupted social contact.
The group offers a communal space for rural women with backgrounds in farming, food and the countryside to share advice, offer support and build friendships.
