What would you tell women who are toying with the idea of getting into Ag? “If you’re thinking about getting into [farming], you must have a connection to it and you must have some sort of a love for it whether from growing up in it, or caring about food or caring about your community. There are resources out there if you start digging.” – Marji Alaniz (FarmHer.com)
