Annie’s Project for Delaware’s Equine Industry Begins Feb 27

Annie's Project logoWhat is Annie’s Project?

Annie was a woman who grew up in a small town in Northern Illinois.  Her goal was to marry a farmer and she did.  Annie spent her lifetime learning how to be an involved business partner with her farm husband.  Together they did great things, but it wasn’t easy.  This is Annie’s Project- to take her experiences and share it with farm women living and working in a complex business.

Objectives

To empower farm women to manage information systems used in critical decision making processes and to build local networks throughout the state.  The target audience is farm women with a passion for business and involvement in the farm operation.
