Registration open for Women Managing the Farm Conference


The Women Managing the Farm Conference, set for February 10 to 12, will go virtual for 2021. Since 2005, the event has brought together women farmers, rural business leaders, and landowners. The Women Managing the Farm Conference will continue to offer a supportive setting in which women can develop the skills, resources and knowledge needed for success in a competitive agricultural environment.

Conference sessions are designed to keep women up to date on the latest advancements in agriculture and thriving within their rural communities. New to the conference in 2021 will be a resource library of videos and materials for attendees to utilize to maintain a healthy and sustainable home and business life.

During this year’s event, the keynote speaker will be Matt Rush, inspirational speaker, author, and self-proclaimed Farm Boy. Rush will motivate attendees to focus on “Planting the Seeds of Greatness”. 

Breakout sessions will include Naomi Blohm and Mary Kay Thatcher. Blohm is a specialist at helping farmers understand how to manage their cash flow. She is the co-creator of Stewart-Peterson’s “Women to Women: Educating Women about Farm Marketing” program . Thatcher will discuss how she thinks the recent election will impact the agriculture industry. Speaking from experience, Thatcher has been a lobbyist for the American Farm Bureau Federation and is currently on the Government Relations team for Syngenta.

Registration for the conference is available on the Women Managing the Farm Conference website, and the 2021 fee is $50.00. Registration includes keynotes, breakout sessions and access to the Women Managing the Farm virtual resource library.

More information about speakers, programs, exhibitors, registration and scholarships can be found at the website, or by calling 785-532-2560. Keep up-to-date with the latest Women Managing the Farm news through their Facebook page.
