There is a new group of Annie’s Project graduates across Maryland and Delaware.  39 farmwomen attended Annie’s Project, which focuses on the many aspects of farm management and is designed to empower women in overall farm decision making and to build local networks throughout the state. The target audience is farmwomen with a passion for business, agriculture and involvement in the farm operation.  Topics for the sessions cover the five areas of Risk Management – Production, Marketing, Financial, Legal Risk, Human Resources.

2013 also marked the first for a new Annie’s Project class.  Annie’s Project II is a program designed to help farmwomen become involved in the journey of transitioning the farm legacy. Special focus is placed on the woman’s role in transition planning, which is the process of creating and implementing an overall strategy to move the farm business from one generation to the next.  Topics for the sessions cover Succession Planning, Estate Planning, Retirement Planning and Business Planning.   17 Farm Women across Maryland and Delaware successfully completed this program.
