Women in Ag #4

Women in Ag 4 is out now! We are proud to present you with this fourth and final edition of Women in Ag for 2021 while looking forward to talking to the new women already lining up for the 2022 editions!

In this fourth issue, we bring you the stories of Marieke De Vos (Belgium), who is definitely not your everyday flower grower, and Jenny Butcher, an American dairy farmer who left the family farm to start a new and very different way of farming. Belgian tractorpulling champion Veerle Thienpondt tells us about what it’s like to win in a men’s world.

Jennifer Fawkes, Marketing Manager at World Ag Expo®, gives us something to look forward to in the new year, while Eline ter Haar and Lotte Kooiker from Dutch agro-travel agency Trekker Reizen dream of new adventures around the world. We end this edition with New Year’s wishes from featured women and Women in Ag supporters, and Melanie Epp’s column as per usual who discusses the term “farmer’s wife”.

We hope you enjoy reading this final Women in Ag for 2021 and are looking forward to another year of bringing inspiring stories from women all over the world as much as we do!

From team Women in Ag: we wish you a wonderful New Year!
