 An area organization with the goal of propelling women entrepreneurs into "economic and social spheres of power" wants to do the same for female farmers. 

Women Entrepreneurs of Central Illinois, WE-CI, will be talking about the role of gender in farm operation Wednesday, April 9.  

Family farmer Rachel Broughton and Sara Leiber - who also has roots in central Illinois farming - joined our Harvest Desk for a conversation about the future of the next generation of farmers and how things have changed since they were raised.
