The second annual 'I am FarmHer' event included 160 amazing ladies from 21 different states. The three-day event was a success but if you could not make it to Kansas City, read below for the recap.
Stephanie Steele is a FarmHer of many talents. She balances being a wife, mom, sweet corn FarmHer and professional in the ag industry working at Ag Connections, helping customers with their land management software.
Family is everything. They are there for us at the beginning and end, and throughout the twists and turns and mountains and valleys in between. At the end of a twisty turning gravel road near Danville, Kentucky I met a family that is there for each other, and a young woman who, with the support of that family is ready to take over the world.
Back in the first year of my FarmHer journey, I set up a little booth at a women’s agriculture event in my home state of Iowa. It was a blast, showing the photos, selling a few shirts and mostly talking to the women farmers at the conference about who they were, why they do what they do and the importance of showing the world the important role women play in agriculture.
I recently met a woman who I have great respect for and can now call a friend. She is a woman. She is a mother. She is a mentor. She is a leader. She is the president of a very large organization. She is following her passions and dreams. She is changing the world.
