What is Annie's Project?

Annie’s Project is the agricultural business education program that empowers farm and ranch women who want to be more knowledgeable about their agricultural enterprises. Women learn best with and from other women. Annie’s Project takes advantage of that by creating a comfortable and supportive learning environment focused on the best farm business management practices.

Course participants will learn practical strategies to make good decisions in five key management areas: financial, human resources, legal, marketing, and production.
