Women engage in a wide variety of jobs on farms in Western New York and across the country. In Chautauqua County, 228 women are primary farm operators according to the 2007 Census of Agriculture. Women farm owner/operators are on the rise, with a 3 percent increase from 2002 to 2007 in Chautauqua County. This is a trend occurring nationally, with more women owning farm businesses or becoming more highly involved in decision-making. Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County plans to engage farm women in discussions of farm business and risk management this winter through Annie's Project.
