The mission of Annie’s Project is to empower farm women to be better business partners through networks and by managing and organizing critical information. Annie’s Project provides education in production, price or market, financial, institutional and legal, and human and personal risk.

Annie’s Project is a six-week course designed especially for farm women to help them develop their management and decision-making skills for their farms. Annie’s Project gives farm women the opportunity to learn from female agricultural professionals and network with other women in similar situations.
