Farm women are making a difference from coast to coast. The American Agri-Women Show is a series by, for and about farm and ranch women. American Agri-Women (AAW) is the national coalition of farm, ranch and agribusiness women, with 58 affiliate state and commodity organizations nationwide. In this half-hour series, AAW brings a weekly topic of concern to farm, ranch and agribusiness women and shares information about how to manage risk in agricultural operations. Each show features expert advice on that week's topic and includes a visit with a farm woman who is addressing that issue in her farming operation. Farm women from Oregon to North Carolina are featured on the show.
Topics include marketing your commodities; evaluating new enterprises, such as agritourism; promoting agriculture; agricultural labor issues; educating students and policymakers about agriculture; managing risk through crop insurance; business planning; accessing farm credit; and resources for women in agriculture. The series is sponsored by the Risk Management Agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The host is award winning farm broadcaster and AAW member Kathy Patton Strunk.
