“HEALTHY FARMS” is the theme for the eighth annual Women in Agriculture Conference. Experience an engaging, interactive day full of inspiration, learning and networking with other women farmers. This is a one-day event held simultaneously at sites throughout Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Montana and Oregon.

The day begins with learning how to cultivate your personal resiliency to handle all the “ups and downs” as a woman farmer. It’s no secret that things can be tough for farmers, whether it is things we can control or issues we try to control when we can’t. The stress in farming has always existed, but the levels can soar during times of high costs and low returns. Positive psychology – using our personal strengths – to focus on intentional well-being and to thrive during every challenge and change is a skill you will practice and learn.

The day also includes a panel of local women farmers. They will talk about the different ways they balance their lives and how they celebrate the job of doing what they love the most! Participants will have the opportunity to meet farmers from their area, compare jobs, ask and answer questions and build a community network. It will be a full day of laughing, learning and networking!

The final take-away message with the cap note speaker will be all about mindfulness. We will learn how to “use our minds to change our brains” for the good. We all want to be calm, contented and centered. We will learn how to cultivate a mindful presence and seed positivity into each day. You will leave this conference with new friends, new ways to farm and new strengths to do what we love to do every day!

Whether you have been farming for several years, are a new or aspiring farmer or employed on a farm or ranch, our conference has something for you. If you are a supporting spouse, student, intern or own an agriculture-related business, make plans to attend this event. There is something for everyone. If you have a farming partner, spouse or friend, bring them with you. Men are welcome too!
