Annie's Mission Statement
To empower farm women to be better business partners through networks and by managing and organizing critical information.
Who is Annie?
Annie was a woman who grew up in a small town in Northern Illinois. Her goal was to marry a farmer and she did. Annie spent her lifetime learning how to be an involved business partner with her farm husband. Together they did great things, but it wasn't easy. This is Annie's Project - to take her experiences and share it with farm women living and working in a complex business.
