WFAN is a community of women engaged in food and agriculture. This includes farmers, landowners, researchers, students, advocates and consumers. The organization facilitates information sharing, peer connections and thoughtful encouragement women need to be effective practitioners and supporters of healthy food and farming systems.
Today there are 5,000+ women and men, working together to foster an ecological and just food and agricultural system. WFAN’s roots are in Iowa with programming expanding to more states every year.
In addition to an annual conference, WFAN has programs for women farmers, aspiring farmers, landowners and future leaders. Harvesting Our Potential provides aspiring women farmers with on-farm mentorships, business planning, and a supportive network to make their dreams a success. Women Caring for the Land brings together women landowners for conversations about their conservation and legacy goals and connects them to available resources. Women, Land and Legacy, a USDA program coordinated through WFAN, supports local groups of women in agriculture to meet in their communities. Plate to Politics provides networking and training for emerging women leaders in the healthy food and farming movement.
