Women farmers are decision makers – Annie’s project prepares them well


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Annie’s Project, a six-week course offered by Purdue Extension to Indiana farmers, brings together women to interact with experts from a variety of fields, including production, financial management, human resources, marketing, and law. The course enables women to become unique business partners and operators.

Annie’s Project courses have reached over 9,000 farm and ranch women in 33 states. Purdue Extension will offer classes starting February 23 and ending March 30. Participants can choose from two virtual offers: 9 a.m. to noon ET Tuesday morning, or 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET Tuesday afternoon.

“Women farmers really love Annie’s Project classes because they learn from the experts and develop camaraderie with other women in the agribusiness,” said Phil Cox, educator with Vermillion County Extension.

The cost of the virtual course is $ 65 per person, which includes a workbook and support materials for all sessions. Cox recommends registering early. Registration closes February 9. Online registration is available here.
