Annie's Project: Empowering Women in Agriculture

Annie's Project Classic is an introductory agricultural risk management program designed to empower women in managing farm business decision making. The target audience is farm women with a passion for business and an involvement in today's farming industry.

Now in its tenth year in New York, Annie's Project is a six-week course designed for today's technology based information systems used in agricultural business decision making and will help participants build a network of personal support regionally and statewide.

Sessions combine lecture, discussion, individual and small group activities, and software training and address risk management in agricultural production, farm business planning, financial statements, recordkeeping, marketing, estate planning, and employee relations.

CCE Broome County will be offering this training in fall/winter 2020. Please email Laura Biasillo at lw257@cornell.edu to be put on an interest list.

Women in Agriculture Discussion Group:

CCE Broome County is also hosting a monthly Women in Agriculture discussion group. Each month the topic is different, but features a presentation by a knowledge expert and then a shared lunch and fellowship time with peers is included.
