We grew up on a mixed grain and beef farm in Southern Manitoba and then headed off to further our educations at university. Through various winding paths now we both find ourselves reconnected with our ag roots.
Over the past several years we have been bouncing around ag-ideas for ventures that we could start together, and in 2017 we were motivated to put our ideas into action. Farm Femmes is a result of the ideas we have been generating for years, and really, cultivating for our entire lives. We hope to use our hands on experiences, technical knowledge and a relate-able voice to showcase the unique ways women can contribute to agriculture in the 21st century. This blog site, along with our social media presence, is our way of connecting with a broader audience to showcase what it means to be an agvocate, ag-extender and FarmFemme.
If there are any topics that you would like to see us post about, please feel free to reply to this email or suggest them on our social media platforms. If you know of a great ag related event, site or agvocate, please let us know so that we can connect to them and help spread the message about women, innovation and agriculture.
