• Reasons to LOVE being a FarmHer

February 05, 2018

Valentine's Day is near and LOVE is on everyone's mind! No matter whether this love is for that special someone, a furry friend, or your family, everyone can agree that the feeling of LOVE is contagious. That's why we, here at FarmHer, want to share why we LOVE you! 

1)   You have the greatest friends.

FarmHer is all about women supporting women, and that’s what comes with the title of being a FarmHer. You always have your favorite ladies on speed dial when you need a little inspiration, advice, or a good laugh. 

2)   “Hot mess” days are accepted.

We all have those days when your hair doesn’t get washed and your makeup doesn’t get done. Remember, your crops and livestock don’t care! As long as you’re feeding and taking care of them, they love you no matter what you look like.


3)   Hard work is HOT!

Nothing is more attractive than a woman that isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty and take responsibility around the farm. Although resting and vacation seems nice, it's also great to be able to go from heels to boots in three seconds flat.

4)   You make a difference.

FarmHer Erin Brenneman said it best, “I wanted to have a place where I could make a difference and have a sense of pride after each baby animal I am able to bring into the world." Not only are you caring for animals and doing your part in feeding the world, but you are raising a family with strong morals and values.


5) We have the cutest clothes.

The FarmHer and RanchHer line is made specifically for the fashion forward, working woman. No matter the season, the online store has the shape, style, and color for you! 


6)   Your opportunities are endless.

Agriculture is full of open doors just waiting to be explored by those who have a passion for the industry. You can be in the field of: communications, nutrition, conservation, sales, human resources, reproduction, accounting, daily care, and the list goes on and on. 


7)   Be proud of your stereotype.

Farming is not a man’s job; it’s a person’s job who is willing to put in the time and effort to feed our hungry planet. Thank you for paving the way for other women to feel proud of the work that they do every day on their farms. FarmHer Emily Erikson said, “As a woman, I am not out to prove that I am better than others, I’m here to do my job.” And if you love what you do, it's one of the most fulfilling jobs in the world!

Throwback Brewery has to be the most unique brewery experience I’ve ever had and behind the barn doors are two FarmHers with a vision.  Just off of a busy road in North Hampton, New Hampshire you will find the old farmstead, updated with a new twist.  Annette and Nicole had no background in brewing, other than enjoying a cold one with friends.  They also had a love of all things local and clearly, good food fits within that.

While 2017 was a whirlwind, I know I will always remember receiving an e-mail saying I was awarded the first scholarship to the national 'I Am FarmHer' event, so graciously sponsored by Brenda and Bob Haney.  I’m just a young FarmHer from nowhere Kansas, I never would have imagined I would be so lucky to have received the scholarship over hundreds of women that would soon connect me with so many amazing ladies from across the country.
