    Sep. 06, 2018

    We are partnering with Summit County to offer Annie’s Project from Feb. 21st to March 28th, 2019.  Annie’s project is a six-week program designed to address risk management education for farm women. Its objective is to educate women entrepreneurs so that they are more prepared to make farm management decisions. While a large number of farm women own and operate farms, others play a major role in the decision-making process of farm operations for farm families. Annie’s Project provides in-depth sessions on topics that are important for decision-making of the family farm.
