The number of women in agriculture has grown significantly over the last few decades. Today nearly 1 million women in the United States are farmers, making up nearly one-third of farmers. From the field to the lab to the boardroom, women are paving the way for the future of agriculture. AgHires is part of the movement with over half of our team being women. AgHires was founded by Lori Culler, who grew up on the family farm and worked as a senior leader who focused on business strategy, organizational development, human capital strategy, and financial management. She started AgHires in 2014 after becoming frustrated with the shortage of resources to support the Agriculture Industry. Not only do we continue to carry out her vision to provide Farms and Agribusiness’s of all sizes the right support to find and hire top talent, but we also work to pave the way for women in the industry.
With American Business Women’s Day on September 22nd and International Women’s Day on March 8th, it’s a great time to recognize the impact women have on the agriculture industry. Read more about women in agriculture.
