FarmHer was founded in 2013 to update the image of agriculture, showcasing the active role women take in the industry. It quickly became clear that women in agriculture not only appreciated FarmHer, but they needed it. Today, FarmHer has grown from a gallery of images on social media to a nationally syndicated television program on RFD-TV. Marji’s images come to life as she travels the country, showcasing women on their farms and ranches. Additionally, through events, a radio show, podcast and line of merchandise, FarmHer continues to update the image of agriculture. Women are rising to the forefront of agriculture and FarmHer is excited to be a driving force behind this effort.
