All About: FarmHer
According to the USDA’s most recent census report, the number of women-led farms has tripled over the past four decades and remains one of the fastest-growing groups in the united states. Today females make up 32% of the farming workforce and are almost one million women strong. Despite these powerful statistics, female farmers have often gone unnoticed in farm imagery…until now. “FarmHer” focuses its camera lens on women in agriculture through the eyes of photographer and tv host Marji Guyler-Alaniz, who takes viewers coast to coast on a journey capturing the story of women and their connection to the land through her camera.
Each episode features a glimpse of agriculture through a unique lens: the female perspective. The women of “Farmher” are passionate and determined to make a difference in the lives of their families, communities and around the world. Some have been through tragedy, others have seen victory … but all of them are connected through their love of agriculture.
FarmHer is working to change the way people perceive a farmer by sharing the stories of the women who live and lead in agriculture. women have always been an important but mostly unseen aspect of agriculture. In recent years, women are rising to the forefront of agriculture in so many ways; as owner/operators, landowners, workers, mentors and much more.
