With more than 9,000 female farmers in West Virginia striving to develop and maintain sustainable farms and agri-businesses, this conference will help recognize and embrace the impact of women on West Virginia agriculture. As women continue to be an integral part of agriculture and agri-business in West Virginia, it is WVU Extension’s responsibility—as part of WVU and its land-grant mission—to help fulfill the needs of women farmers and all West Virginians.

Objectives:

  • West Virginia-specific projected costs and revenues for agriculture products compiled and shared
  • Agri-women grow more confident in farm and business abilities
  • Innovative business-farm relationships formed
  • Supportive statewide network built and sustained
  • More women farmers’ voices heard and valued
