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 fifth 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 will 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.

Broome County Cornell Cooperative Extension will be offering this training in March 2017. Pre-registration is required. Here is a flier with more information and quotes from previous participants. To register contact Laura Biasillo at or visit the registration link. The cost to participate is $75 per person, which includes all course materials, meals, and handouts. 

Annie's Project Managing for Today & Tomorrow is a second level, 5 session course on farm transition planning. It teaches business, estate, retirement and succession planning. Farm women will develop networks and skills key to making successful farm transitions. Please click here  for a link to more information on the program. We are not currently running a MTT session but please let us know if you would be interested.
