Women in Farming
The Women in Farming network was created following requests from women living and working on farms and related industries. They recognised the value of connecting with people in similar situations, using the opportunity to learn from each other.
Since its initial set up in 2013 the network has grown from strength to strength providing opportunities for women to learn from each other, build contacts and offer support to their fellow members. Many of the issues affecting women in farm/rural life and business are shared by others. The Network has the spirit of collaboration at its heart, encouraging positive outcomes.
What we do
The group supports women in farming in a variety of ways:
- An opportunity to build contacts and lasting friendships.
- Identify relevant inspirational speakers to bring positivity and ingenuity to our Annual Conference
- Meet four to five times a year with a range of breakfast, lunch and evening meetings with timings and content to appeal particularly to women.
- Constantly adapting and moving forward by supporting valuable training and information to progress and diversify in the industry.
