An event for young women in agriculture

Proudly sponsored by


Women play many important roles in agriculture as scientists, researchers, ranchers, care takers, and producers, just to name a few. At FarmHer shining a light on these women is our mission and we know it is important that they are celebrated for their accomplishments, are given a platform to share their stories and are able to inspire others through connection. 

As our way of helping connect, inform and inspire the next generation of women in ag, we bring you Grow by FarmHer.  Grow is a series of events designed to inspire and empower young women in agriculture to take an active role in the industry.   These events, suggested for young women ages 15-23 with an interest in agriculture, will feature inspirational and informational experiences as a group as well as meaningful one-on-one connections with women ag leaders.  At Grow by FarmHer, young women will get a real-life look at what they need to do to be successful ag leaders, while gaining the encouragement and making the connections that are pivotal to helping them Grow in agriculture. Register for an event today to join your peers, be inspired, learn and Grow your future in ag!


Why You Need To Attend

We want each attendee to have a positive, fun learning experience at each Grow event. These events are packed full of inspirational and knowledgeable speakers, networking opportunities, and valuable learning adventures. Attendees will also receive a limited edition Grow by FarmHer T-shirt.

Connection Point

Networking is important for women of all ages.  Our goal is to connect you with women leading agribusinesses and ag operations. The Connection Point will give attendees the opportunity to visit with these women at their connection point booth.

Women Leading the Way Luncheon

Attendees will enjoy some time to connect one-on-one with a successful woman in ag during lunch!  With a focus on connecting agribusiness professionals with young women in agriculture, all attendees will enjoy lunch with a woman making a difference in  agriculture.
