    Facing Your Fears in Agriculture with Marina Schmidt

    Facing Your Fears in Agriculture with Marina Schmidt

    On this week's episode of The Rural Woman Podcast™, you'll meet Marina Schmidt.
    Marina’s title of farmwife started in 2019 when she married a farmer. It was a change of a lifetime to go from a small-town girl with no knowledge of agriculture to now living on a 100-acre family farm in Southwestern Ontario. She has jumped right in and has been learning how to drive equipment, take care of cattle, grow a garden, plant and harvest crops, and run a farm business with her husband and his brother while working at a local hospital part-time as an X-ray tech.

    AGI Storm FX
    Take the guesswork out of seed treating.

    Building on the success of previous models, the key functions of the AGI STORM FX have been refined through consultation with our current users. The AGI STORM FX has been engineered for accuracy, flexibility and mobility, gentle seed handling and easy clean-out, all while reducing user exposure.

    Unlike other seed treaters, the AGI STORM FX accurately measures untreated seed directly from the bin, precisely meters and applies the seed treatment, gently mixes the seed for consistent, even coverage and then transfers the treated seed into the truck, ready to plant. The simplified process provided by the AGI STORM FX reduces user exposure, making in-the-yard seed treating safe, simple and convenient, while giving you total control over the seed treating process.

    Seed Treating Solutions with AGI’s Leanne Marin

    Seed Treating Solutions with AGI’s Leanne Marin

    On this week's episode of The Rural Woman Podcast™, you'll meet Leanne Marin.
    Growing up on a multi-generational family farm, Leanne Marin knows life in ag moves fast. Her role with AGI helps her do what she does best: find solutions for producers where they least expect it. Starting her career with AGI in 2017, Leanne began as a product specialist with the STORM Seed Treater line. She spent her time on-farm, side by side with producers to help them become more profitable through advanced seed treating technology.
    Now in her new role as a Farm Technology Manager, Leanne takes that same kitchen table approach to identify unique opportunities, solve current on-farm challenges, and find additional ROI for each scenario through AGI’s technology solutions.

    Not Your Father's Farm Conference with Simone Weinstein

    Not Your Father's Farm Conference with Simone Weinstein

    On this week's episode of The Rural Woman Podcast™, you'll meet Simone Weinstein.
    Simone made the leap from a classic 9-5 to self-employment when they joined Celeste at The Conscious Kitchen. They were working in sustainable food consulting and loved working with food entrepreneurs, but there was something missing. Their passion started early, climbing trees and studying snakes, and took them to study Environment and Business at the University of Waterloo and then to the non-profit world. Now working with their partner Celeste, they love being able to practice sustainability with each purchase from a local farm and to shape the direction of a business.
    Simone's favourite thing when helping entrepreneurs is to get grounded in the financials of a business. With a love for numbers and analytics, bookkeeping is something that brings them great joy! By making sense of the books, Simone strives to give business owners the knowledge and tools to build a business that supports the business owners, employees, and community. Their goal is to help build sustainable businesses that don't lead to burnout, because they have seen it happen far too often!

Life changing Podcast!

Words can not express the gratitude I feel for your podcast. I binged them through some dark days during the pandemic & your messages brought my heart hope, laughs & some tears too ;) Farming isn’t always easy & you & your guests have taught our family so much but most importantly to celebrate how far we’ve come ~ it hasn’t always been easy raising kids with disabilities & who are also visible minorities….. one day I hope to be a guest on your show & share our story which is filled with songs about our life (I’m a musician,) the fairies who brought me here & our many adventures in farming & Agrotourism xo

LJBoville ,

Always educational and inspirational

One of my must listen every week! Every time I listen I find myself smiling, nodding and yes sometimes crying right along with katelyn and her guests. I find myself learning something new every week and being refreshed to go finish my own work, being chores, animals or growing my our business. Thanks for inspiring and lifting up other women in the “field” ❤️

Erica Leniczek ,

I love this podcast

Katelyn is such an incredible voice and had created a home-like community for women in agriculture. She has opened my eyes to some of the amazing, strong and wonderful women who are passionate about similar things as me. I’ve had the opportunity to create friendships from listening to this podcast. Not only am I a long time listener of The Rural Woman Podcast, but Katelyn also helped me start my own podcast through her Behind The Mic Coaching. She was patient, kind, and set me up for success then lead me to be part of the Positively Farming Media network, which has more women I am grateful to call my friends. Thank you Katelyn for being such a light in this world, bringing people together, and sharing so many wonderful stories.
