FarmHer was founded in 2013 to change the image of agriculture by depicting women taking an active role in the industry through photographs and by sharing their stories. It quickly became clear that women in agriculture not only appreciated FarmHer, but they needed it and they asked for more. Today, FarmHer has grown into much more than just a gallery of images; it is changing the way people perceive a farmer. The online FarmHer community has created a place for women to connect with and learn from others just like them, in a safe and positive environment. Women are rising to the forefront of agriculture and FarmHer is excited to be a driving force behind this effort.
