    'Inherit it or Marry it' - women accessing farmland with Dr Ryanne Pilgeram

    'Inherit it or Marry it' - women accessing farmland with Dr Ryanne Pilgeram

    A discussion with Dr. Ryanne Pilgeram about her decade long research about women in agriculture and the social, financial and other barriers they contend with including the acquisition of land. Historically women have been excluded from owning land and locked out of the successorship of generational farmland. Land ownership is the great tell of inequality in communities. Women not only have to be creative in navigating the acquisition of land and financing, but they are having to move further out from city centers where their customer base is.
