    The Diversification of Five Marys Farms

    The Diversification of Five Marys Farms

    It’s finally March and that can only mean one thing: it’s Women's History Month! At FarmHer, we meet women every day who are making history. Whether that’s through interaction on social media, an in-person meeting, or even a podcast interview. To kick our favorite month off, we brought in one extraordinary FarmHer who is so much more than just a FarmHer. She’s an entrepreneur of over twenty small businesses in different industries, mother to four other FarmHers who all happen to be named Mary, wife to a rancher she works right alongside, teacher to many, creative content creator, and more. I mean really, the list could keep going all day. Meet Mary of Five Marys Farms!

There’s nothing like a FarmHer ❤️ 🐄

Listening to “The show must go on” broughtTears to my eyes. As a farm girl who grew up showing cows, I know first hand how special, memorable and important those years were. The women that stepped up to create an event where people could still show off their livestock and experience their version of the fair. It was awesome to hear. I love this podcast and how Marji is sharing the stories of FarmHers in agriculture. Farming It truly is becoming a lost “art.” Well done. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
