Annie’s Project: Risk Management for Farm Women

  • Monday, November 1, 2021, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Mondays & Thursdays, 6:30-8:30pm via Zoom
Nov 1st-Dec 16th (skip week of Thanksgiving)

Annie's Project is a six week online experience designed especially for farm women to help them develop their management and decision-making skills for their farms. Annie’s Project is designed for farm women who have been in farming, or agri-business, or part of the food system for three to five years, and want to develop their understanding, interpretation, and opportunities in sustainable agriculture. Annie’s Project gives farm women the opportunity to learn from female agricultural professionals and network with other women in similar situations.

Annie’s Project provides education in production, price or market, financial, institutional and legal, and human and personal risk. At the end of six weeks, participants will —
Understand personality types to communicate better with business partners
Put family living expenses together with other costs of doing business on the farm
Identify production risks on-farm and prioritize risk management strategies to minimize losses

  • Interpret balance sheets, income statements, and cash flow projections to make business decisions
    Review labor laws, requirements, and their implications
    Understand how assets are titled and learn about estate planning tools
    Consider available marketing opportunities
    Understand tools and resources for stress management & farm equipment needs specific to farm women

Using real world examples, subject matter experts, and peer to peer learning farm women will walk away more empowered and confident to take on responsibilities on-farm! Only $30 and includes a padfolio to keep all your notes. This year we are waiving the fee for NYS women veterans interested in getting into agriculture.
