20 Reasons Being a Farm Girl Rocks

Being a farmer is a tough job. It takes long hours, dedication and patience. It takes time and flexibility. It's not for those without a strong work ethic. It can be even tougher for a woman who might feel like she is in a man's world. So why would a woman want to be a farmer? We asked why being a woman in agriculture rocks and here are 20 reasons!

"I get to work with my family every day!" - Claudia

"I like the satisfaction that I'm able to teach my daughters how to be strong, independent girls in agriculture everyday" - Kaylie

"Knowing that I will be an influence on the future. Feeding the future, protecting the way of life we love, and maybe even encourage some other women to farm too." - Abigail

"Being able to put these 'tough' city boys in their place!" - Kristi

"The family time. Working and enjoy the fruits of our labor." - Jess

"Being outdoors, watching what you plant grow and being able to harvest it and canning so you reap the rewards all year long." - Mari

"Love getting to teach my kids this way of life. Teaching them how to work with not just their minds, but their backs as well. And they love it!" - LeAnn

"The freedom it affords me. Working with my children and husband & now new son-in-law! Not being tied to a desk (unless I want to be) The view daily is amazing!" - Maryann

"I get to work outside in the fresh air and be my own boss. I get to work side by side with my husband. I get to watch all the newborn calves grow and become healthy adults. Sure, there are bad times, like when you're up all night trying to save a newborn or having to pull one, but i wouldnt trade this life for anything."- Jen

"All the surprises, no day is ever the same!!!!" - Flecia

"You know, I kinda like these big muscles without stepping foot in a gym." - Angela
