FarmHer also hosts events, like Grow by FarmHer and I Am FarmHer, that bring together women in agriculture with empowering and educational speakers and introduces them to the skills needed to be successful leaders. During #FarmingFridays, FarmHer will share what it’s like behind the scenes while highlighting the stories of some amazing women in agriculture.

“Our guests love learning more about the ag industry and where their food comes from,” said Jessie Kreke, senior marketing manager at Culver’s. “Culver’s is proud to provide an avenue for those in the agricultural industry to share their stories through #FarmingFridays.”

Culver’s Thank You Farmers Project works to ensure that we continue to have enough food to feed our country’s growing population by supporting agricultural education programs that teach smart farming. To date, the Thank You Farmers Project has raised over $1.7 million in support of the National FFA Organization and Foundation, local FFA chapters and a variety of local agricultural organizations.
