Women Represent 31% of U.S. Farmers – How Many Are in Your State? – USDA

From the classroom to the farm to the boardroom, women in agriculture are helping to pave the way for a better future. As leaders, it is our responsibility to make sure the next generation of women are educated, encouraged and empowered to take on the challenges of meeting the world’s growing food, fuel and fiber needs.

To celebrate and honor the contributions of women in agriculture, USDA has released a series of fact sheets detailing the impact women have on agriculture in each state and across the country. See links to each state below.

To learn more and connect with other women leaders in agriculture all across the country, we encourage you to join our women in ag mentoring network. Join the conversation by emailing AgWomenLead@usda.gov and be sure to check out #womeninag on Twitter and on the USDA blog, our #womeninag Storify, and this video message from Deputy Secretary Krysta Harden.
