Stephanie O'Keefe always wanted to own land, but felt she didn’t have what it took to make that happen.
“I did not have enough knowledge or muscle for the task,” she said. “However, it became apparent about four years ago that my son-in-law and I could become partners, and between the two of us, accomplish the goal of land management.”
With that in mind, Stephanie aimed to learn as much as she could about managing farmland. One source of continuing education she discovered was through the Center for Rural Affairs’ Women’s Learning Circles.
