Women Advocating for Agriculture: You’ll Find them Everywhere June 19, 2013

By Julie Murphree, Arizona Farm Bureau

June is the month that Arizona Farm Bureau and our other agriculture groups gather for the Women’s Leadership Conference. Having held the latest conference, the women that attended are now back at home/farm/ranch base and doing what they do best: helping the family ag business, engaging in their communities and most of all advocating for agriculture.


Hickman's Family Farms' Sharman Hickman with media personality Jan D'Atri during Jan's Saturday afternoon "In the Kitchen with Jan" show on 550KFYI. Both women are serious advocates for agriculture.

If you’ve ever wondered why our agriculture families have so much passion, we could probably tell you it’s in great part due to the women in agriculture. ┬áHere’s what I value about our women in agriculture.

  1. Dedication
  2. Persistence to the cause
  3. Family devotion
  4. Strong work ethics
  5. Caring
  6. Encouraging
  7. Hopeful even in the midst of tough times
  8. Fun
  9. Engaged
  10. Cheerleaders
  11. Great listeners
  12. Patient
  13. Tolerant
  14. Enduring
  15. Unwearied
  16. Serene
  17. Formidable
  18. Courageous
  19. Spirited
  20. Plucky

So, if you need to be inspired and encouraged hang out with the women of agriculture that I know.
