Harvesting our Potential: Training Women Farmers

Through Harvesting Our Potential: Training Women Farmers, WFAN will train 10 aspiring women farmers to become successful businesswomen. Two indicators of success for future farmers are farm experience and business planning. Training will address both of these and a third component that is critical for women: a supportive network of other women. By training a cadre of the next generation of women farmers, WFAN will not only address the disparity between men and women farmers in Iowa. It will address food insecurity in Iowa through entrepreneurship. Funded by IWF and Hills Bank and Trust Company.
