San Diego, CA | January 19 - 21, 2020

Farming is never a one-woman job – it takes a village to run a successful operation. This conference will not only prepare attendees for success in agriculture, but it will also provide them with their own network of women farmers and ranchers they can reach out to throughout the year.

Farmers, policy makers, educators, and specialists will present on a number of subjects, including financial management, farm labor, leadership, and more.
