Patrice Barrentine

Summary

As a current recipient of RMA┬┤s Community Outreach and Assistance Partnership Grant, Washington State Department of Agriculture┬┤s Small Farm Direct Marketing Program is conducting educational outreach to women farmers throughout our state on direct marketing, business and succession planning, energy alternatives for the small farmer, AGR-Lite insurance, value-added production, and state regulations and licenses for farm businesses. We have devised two methods of delivery: 1)agricultural conferences attracting women farmers, and 2)regional, women only, small group mentoring sessions. Come learn about the value of each of these delivery methods and the expected and surprise results of these outreach workshops for women farmers as we walk through our experiences in planning and conducting outreach.
