Workshops run from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and include lunch and a farm tour. The cost is $25 and scholarships are available. Each workshop is on a different woman-owned farm and covers different topics, so women are welcome to attend more than one.

She and her family run Inn Serendipity Farm and B&B outside Monroe, WI. “Each workshop offers an inspiring lineup of women farmers who share their knowledge and experiences, enabling participants to dive into the practicalities of successfully running farm and food-based enterprises, including value-added enterprises, land stewardship, risk management through income diversification, and integrating children and family.”
