Women in farming and ranching may fill many overlapping roles such as business manager, owner, operator, landlord, laborer, wife and mother, and partner, often but not always in combination with an intergenerational family team. The Women Managing the Farm project was developed to provide education, development, and support for women involved in their many roles. In addition to an annual conference, the support system is now expanding into year round support with specialized listserves devoted to unique roles, and Rural Route Women, an online support network designed to address participants´ concerns and issues.
