Women in Agriculture

Ayre Hotel, Ayre Road, Kirkwall KW15 1QX
  • Do you farm?
  • Do you work or help with your family farm?
  • Are you interested in all aspects of farming, from lambing ewes to diversification?

It is well known that women play a vital role in the farming industry.  Recent research highlighted the need for professional development for women in the industry. You are invited to join the launch of a programme of events for Women in Agriculture. With inspirational speakers and informative talks these meetings aim to give women in the agricultural industry the tools and confidence to drive their business forward.

The meeting will gauge the requirements on a local level to steer the future meeting topics, be it diversification, adding value to farm produce or simply a refresher on record keeping requirements. It is planned to build a programme of events to cater for the requirements of the many women working within the industry.
