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.

We rolled into the tiny town of Oneida, Illinois, not quite sure what to expect.  I was looking for Beth Rylander, the FarmHer behind Feed Mill Fabric and Quilting.  What I found was nothing like what I had imagined.  Sure there was an old feed mill, but inside was row upon row of beautiful printed fabrics in every color under the sun.  Outside was an old grain elevator converted into farm storage and all of it, run by the FarmHer.

A few years back I spent my days working in insurance.  Then I quit.  Yep, I was a quitter, but I needed a change in my life, I needed a shake up to figure out what was next.  Shortly afterwards, I started a photo project to highlight the role women play in agriculture.  Well, that grew.

If you have ever found yourself willingly wearing a blue corduroy jacket, you probably have shared the same life changing experiences that I have (and are extremely proud of it!). These experiences defined my career path, my sense of responsibility, and my dedication to serving others.

I never set out to be a TV Host.  I still don’t introduce myself that way when people ask what I do, and probably never will.  I am a photographer, business owner, wife, mom and woman that is desperately trying to keep all of those balls in the air.  On top of that, I just happen to have a TV show, that is an extension of the work I have been doing for nearly four years now, shining a light on the women of agriculture.
