Women in Farming
The Women in Farming network came about at a request of women who lived and worked on farms and in agricultural related industries who felt it would be useful to meet people in similar situations to build contacts and friendships and to learn from each other. The network is free to join and meets four to five times a year with a range of breakfast, lunch and evening meetings in addition to the annual conference in October which sees inspiring speakers from relevant industries and brands talking about their own experiences.
The main aim of the network is for women to learn from each other, build contacts and offer support to their fellow members as many of the issues affecting women in rural life and business are shared by others. The mood is positive and the outcomes successful.
