I am the only woman who sits on the Holland Marsh Grower's Association Board (the Farmers voted for me last November--I was honoured, since I beat out a male Farmer--evil, knowing laugh). Our 2nd AGM is on Thursday, we'll see if I remain on the Board!

I believe having a woman's perspective and input on an operation, can be invaluable to a farming operation. We see things a little differently sometimes, which is a definite benefit in the long run. My husband and I are a team, a good one, but that's because I don't hold back--he gets my opinion whether he wants it or not!
