March is Women’s History Month and we’re celebrating, honoring, and recognizing the women: legislators; chefs; farmers; ranchers; producers; and advocates, creating a more sustainable and just food and farming system.
That includes our own Director of Agriculture and Food Systems, Kendra Kimbirauskas, who regeneratively farms 70 acres in Scio, Oregon on Kalapuya land.
Share your appreciation for female farmers by downloading and sharing this graphic on your platform and check out the stories of some of the female farmers, ranchers, producers and advocates transforming our food system.
