Challenges and Opportunities for Women Farmers

Friday, January 31, 2014 // Margiana Petersen-Rockney

Did you know that 39% of Massachusetts farmers are women, compared to only 14% nationally?

A few of these amazing women met at the Beginning Farmer Network of Mass (BFN/Mass) Fall Forum in November and became energized about working together to address the needs of women in agriculture in Massachusetts. As this group coalesces we want to get a sense of the challenges and opportunities facing women farmers and others in the field. Please take this short survey and forward it widely!
