WELCOME TO WOMEN IN DENIM

The first Women in Denim conference was held in January of 2004 after a yearlong planning process. 2015 began the second decade of this volunteer-led effort for women involved in ALL facets of agriculture. Whether you actively farm, work in agribusiness, or just eat three times a day - you are welcome to the conference.

The goal of Women in Denim is to support women in agriculture and those who enjoy the rural way of life. Women involved in agriculture will find workshops to sharpen their skills in decision making, leadership, finances, and knowledge of agriculture. There are workshops that also support and acknowledge the importance of family, community, leisure time, quality of life and overall wellness. The conference features 20 workshops. The motto of the conference is "Celebrating Women of Rural America" and the sessions offered reflect the many interests of such women.
