Women and Agriculture

As I was heading out this morning to do chores, NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday did a nice story that kept me in my seat until after dawn, making some other ladies I know none too happy. My favorite line: "You don't talk bad about a farmer with your mouth full."
And even though women are described as "the largest minority in agriculture," which seems somehow strange to me in terms of a figure, the juxtaposition of these two farmers is striking. For the interested, listen to the story here: "Women Farmers Grow Strong".
