We all know the challenges facing farmers across our nation, and it is becoming more important each year that we work together to strengthen the face of agriculture. 

As this conference has evolved, we have grown together over the past few years. We are eager to keep moving women in agriculture forward with another great line up of farm tours and sessions.

On behalf of West Virginia University and WVU Extension Service’s Agriculture and Natural Resources unit, the Women in Agriculture Team invites you to the 6th annual West Virginia Women in Agriculture Conference.

Learning Objectives:

    • Education: Find information easily obtained, retained and understandable from discussion-based teaching experiences at the conference
    • Collaboration: Learn how to more effectively connect with other producers, funders, service providers and governmental representatives
    • Leadership: Understand the importance of developing leadership skills and sharing them to increase successes in the agriculture and natural resources industry
    • Economic: Adopt strategies that will lead to improved efficiency and increase small farm and agribusiness sustainability in West Virginia

      A complete list of the schedule, speakers, sponsorship information and activities will be published in the summer. We look forward to seeing you in November!
