NPR Takes a Look at The Largest Minority in Agriculture: Women

NPR’s weekend edition interviewed two livestock farmers in its Weekend Edition story “Women Farmers Grow Strong.” The farmers were from Arkansas and Nebraska, but the themes they brought to the conversation are the same as in the Northeast: women farmers’ flexibility and entrepreneurship; their devotion to humanely raising animals, producing healthy food, and feeding their families and their communities. It’s worth a few minutes to take a listen. Then let us know what you think.
