What is Annie’s Project?

Logo - Annie's Project - Empowering Women in Agriculture

Annie’s Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational programs designed to strengthen women’s roles in the modern farm enterprise. Working with partners across the United States, Annie’s Project helps female farmers build viable and sustainable farm businesses by:

  • Providing tailored training, taught by local experts, and resources to meet the needs of women in your region
  • Offering small class sizes focusing on topics such as risk management, budgeting, business planning, marketing, farm and food safety and more
  • Encouraging networking opportunities

WVU Extension Service is pleased to partner with Annie’s Project to provide West Virginia’s female farmers with the training, skills and support to build a successful agricultural business. For more information, contact Dee Singh-Knights.
