At Annie’s Project courses, farm women become empowered to be
better business partners or sole operators through networks and
by managing and organizing critical information.
Annie’s Project is a six-week course that is a discussion-based
workshop bringing women together to learn from experts in
production, financial management, human resources, marketing,
and the legal field. There's plenty of time for questions,
sharing, reacting and connecting with presenters and fellow
participants. It's a relaxed, fun and dynamic way to learn, grow
and meet other farm women.
Whether new or experienced, understanding the five areas of
agricultural risk, knowing how to analyze agricultural
spreadsheets and other necessary skills are vital. Learning them
in a friendly environment where questions and discussion are
welcomed, allow the learning process to flourish.
Annie’s Project courses have successfully reached more than
9,000 farm and ranch women in 33 states. The next Annie's
Project is being co-sponsored by University of Illinois
Extension, Fulton-Mason-Peoria-Tazewell Unit, and Fulton County
Farm Bureau starting in March. Annie’s Project is designed to
help farm women develop their management and decision making
skills in the dynamic, complex world of agriculture.
