NC Farm Bureau’s Women’s Program engages women with the training and education they need to become powerful advocates for today’s agriculture.

The program provides women with leadership training, communication skills, and networking to strengthen their ability to encourage positive change in their communities and in the agricultural industry.

The Women’s Program is open to any female NC Farm Bureau member interested in supporting Farm Bureau’s policies, initiatives and agriculture.
