Soil Sisters: 3 Ways Women Cultivate Food Change

Lisa Kivirist Women In Agriculture

Women make up one of the fastest growing groups of new farmers today, increasing over twenty percent in the last ten years alone. More than mounting numbers, these women rock fresh ideas when it comes to agriculture, farming and – ultimately – what’s on America’s plates.

These women-led operations prioritize local food, sustainable agriculture and land stewardship and do it via a diversification of ways, from serving up pizza and pies to offering farm stays powered by renewable energy, like at my own farm in Wisconsin, Inn Serendipity.

More than looking for a “job” and something to pay the bills, these women farmers and food business owners, educators and activists see their farmsteads as a tool for change, a canvas on which to both express their passions, earn an honest livelihood and change the world.

A tall order, indeed, but as you’ll see in the pages of my new book, Soil Sisters: A Toolkit for Women Farmers, these females with a drive for food and farming serve up exactly that.
