More than 40 women gathered at the Prairie Plate Restaurant on Lakehouse Farm in Waverly, Nebraska, on August 5. We were there to network, share stories, and learn about resources available to beginning women farmers and ranchers.
A great mix of women attended the event. They included women who were already farming, women who were interested in buying land, and women who had never farmed before.
