Welcome FarmHer’s summer intern, Hannah Borg

 

FarmHer has a history of having fantastic summer interns that add value and excitement to the company and Hannah Borg is no exception. The team is excited to welcome this Nebraska native to the office this summer as the communication intern. Hannah gives some insight below on why she is looking forward to working at FarmHer over the next few weeks.

 

       1. What is your background in agriculture?


Growing up if I wasn’t riding in the buddy seat next to my dad in the tractor you could find me in the show ring on top of a horse. Still to this day, not much has changed… except now I’m driving the tractors! With a view of cattle out the front window and corn out the back, my whole life is rooted in agriculture. At Borg Farms, in northeast Nebraska, my family grows corn, soybeans, alfalfa and also feeds cattle. Also, we are currently in the process of building chicken barns to grow pullets for Lincoln Premium Poultry! 

  

 

2.Why FarmHer and what attracted you to the company?

How could I not want to work at FarmHer?! The first time I ever saw Marji speak was at Commodity Classic in 2016 and I’ve been in love with the brand ever since. I’ve always been surrounded by strong women in agriculture but have always been aware of the lack of women in agriculture represented in media. I love the community around being a FarmHer and I’m so proud to now be a part of the 'FarmHerd.'
 
 
 
 
3. What are you most looking forward to with your summer internship?

Can everything be an answer? The team at FarmHer has lined up a lot of great projects for me to work on but if I had to nail down something specific then I would have to say attending the events like I am FarmHer. I cannot wait to meet other FarmHer’s from all over and learn about their operations and hear their stories!

   

 

4. Share a quote that you live by.

Chin up. Heels down.
Let me explain. I’ve shown horses all my life and I am constantly being told, “Hannah, chin up, heels down.”  Those few words remind me to always ride confidently. When I’m in the show ring, no matter how good/bad my warm-up was, I have to have laser focus and be on top of my game. This transitions into my life outside of the show pen. I try to take on any tasks with a ‘horse show mindset’ and that is just to have fun and enjoy the ride!

We must stand up, together.  FarmHer lives within the culture of agriculture.  I have said it 100 times if not 1000, agriculture is a culture and like every culture, it needs diversity to thrive.  Diversity in color, gender, geography, age, thought, size…diversity in everything.  This is our culture and it is on all of us to stand up and speak out against all types of racism.
