FarmHer, an organization dedicated to shining a light on women in agriculture, will be at the 100th Clay County Fair supporting a different perspective of agriculture; the women.
The FarmHer display will be featured at the Centennial Plaza, September 14-17. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the important roles women play in agriculture through FarmHer images displayed on a 36-foot trailer, screens airing FarmHer images and short video clips from the award-winning FarmHer TV series as well as FarmHer merchandise. The FarmHer theme for the 2017 Clay County Fair is “Are you a FarmHer fan?” and anyone who signs up for the FarmHer mailing list will receive a free folding fan, featuring a FarmHer photograph. It wouldn’t be a fair without temporary tattoos, and visitors to the trailer will have the opportunity to wear home their FarmHer pride.
“Being an Iowa-based organization, we are proud to be a part of not only the largest county fair in the nation, but its 100th year celebration,” says Marji Guyler-Alaniz, Founder and President of FarmHer. “We shared FarmHer at the fair two years ago and are excited to be back to share all of the new and exciting aspects of FarmHer, including the TV show, in our home state of Iowa.” To find out more, visit www.farmher.com.
About FarmHer: FarmHer was founded in 2013 to change the image of agriculture, depicting women taking an active role in the industry through photographs and by sharing their stories. It quickly became clear that women in agriculture not only appreciated FarmHer, but they needed it. And they asked for more. Today, FarmHer has grown into much more than just a gallery of images; it is changing the way people perceive a farmer. The brand includes a national, award-winning weekly television show, events for women around the country, merchandise and home goods. Women are rising to the forefront of agriculture and FarmHer is excited to be a driving force behind this effort.
