When we talk about women’s roles in agriculture, lines often get blurred. When I first moved to our farm, I was new to agriculture and wasn’t interested in farming as a career. However, as time went on, I developed not just an interest, but a passion for farming (much to my husband’s delight). Today, I work hard to help make our farm a success.
My role isn’t as visible as my husband’s, but it is real. I know this is the case for many other women on farms, and our work goes largely unrecognised by society.
