FarmHer began after founder and host, Marji Guyler-Alaniz, took a leap of faith, starting a passion project with a mission of shining a light on the women of agriculture. In 2013, Marji had just left her job in corporate agriculture and started a photo project titled FarmHer, capturing women working on the farm.
She wasn’t the only one interested in updating the image of agriculture and others began to follow the movement. FarmHer quickly grew into a place where stories are shared and women working in agriculture are not only recognized, but feela sense of inspiration and community.
Today the business consists of various entities, all shining a light on women in agriculture. FarmHer has featured over 350 women thus far, and creates a diverse set of media offerings, including photography, television, YouTube videos, written word, and podcasts. Each month, over a million people interact and/or experience the brand’s presence in their lives.
FarmHer’s slogan: “Love the land, care for the community, feed the people.“
Erin Leifker is FarmHer’s Business Manager. Her role centers around building relationships and creating opportunities between FarmHer and other organizations. Erin is the proud 5th generation on her family’s Century Farm in south-central Wisconsin.
