The Female Farmer Project

documenting the rise of women in agriculture

the inspiration

Farmer Sarah of Oxbow Farm, Carnation WA

The Female Farmer Project came about early spring in 2013 when standing in the fields with one of my favorite farmers, Sarah Cassidy of Oxbow Farm.  I snapped a picture of her on my iPhone as she was showing me the gorgeous purple broccoli that was ready to harvest.  Over the next few days, I realized that I need to document these women farmers who are tasked with family, farm, and often an outside job, and share their stories of how they do it all, tirelessly and beautifully.  Please follow along as I share their stories with you.
