By the Numbers - What the 2012 Census of Ag Tells us about Women Farm and Ranch Operators

What does the 2012 Census of Ag tell us about women in agriculture? Where are women farmers? What changes have taken place in the landscape since 2007 and 2002?

Virginia Harris of NASS (National Agricultural Statistics Service) will discuss the changing demographics of agriculture in the United States and what those changes mean to women in agriculture.

Carolyn Sachs, Professor of Rural Sociology and Head of Women’s Studies Department at Penn State University, will share some insight into issues of gender and agriculture.

Lyn Garling, a Pennsylvania farmer, is part of the statistics of women who are growing and marketing local foods. She'll give her perspective on the changes she's experienced as a farm woman.
