Annie's Project: Empowering Women in Agriculture

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 to address risk management in agricultural production, farm business planning, financial statements, recordkeeping, marketing, estate planning, and employee relations.

There are multiple Annie's Project offerings in New York State. They include:

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.

Know Your Numbers, Know Your Options is a series focused on helping farm women hone their farm financial skills to empower them to make more informed farm financial decisions. Using an online platform for both learning and engagement farm women are able to gain relevant farm financial skills and resources, while troubleshooting their own situations.

Inspired by Annie's takes the essence of Annie's Project and focuses on specific areas of risk management, including Production, Marketing, and Financial. Watch in Spring 2022 for an Inspired Annie's focused on marketing.

Managing for Today & Tomorrow is a farm transition planning series in the Annie's suite of curriculum.
