documenting the rise of women in agriculture

What are people saying about the podcast?


"This podcast deserves binge listening." - Real Food Films

From iTunes:

"I'm loving this podcast so far. It's nice, as a female farmer, to hear other stories of different obstacles farmers face and how these women are finding their own unique solutions. I look forward to future episodes!

"A fun and interesting podcast for those interested in food production and the challenges of farming. As a male, I haven't found any "female focus" off putting; it's been light. Subscribed!"

"Thanks for this...great conversation for understanding the obstacles and opportunities for women in farming."

"Love this podcast for its fresh perspective on farming and food in general. Very approachable and great chemistry!"
