Charleston, WV - West Virginia Agri-Women, a state-wide organization aimed at
assisting females in the industry and those just starting out, will hold their
summer quarterly meeting and farm tour on Sunday, August 27 beginning at 2:00 p.m.
at the Delaware Valley Llama Farm in Mountain, WV. Members, as well as those
interested in joining, are invited to attend.
The afternoon will begin with a tour of the farm and a mock
whole farm review conducted by WVU Extension. It will give participants a
chance to see how the process works, how they can prepare for a review of their
own and the importance of sustainability and farm management to a successful
agribusiness. Extension specialists will be on hand to answer any questions.
"Female farmers are starting to run more and more farm
operations throughout the country. They are an ever-growing, important part of
agriculture's future," said Commissioner of Agriculture Kent Leonhardt.
"I applaud the West Virginia Agri-Women for not only sponsoring this event
but adding a learning component. It's extremely important that our farmers,
growers and producers have access to continuing education and opportunities to
share their knowledge with one another."
winds up at 4 p.m. with a picnic. The quarterly meeting will follow.
Reservations are requested for the tour and meeting no
