Each month, FarmHer is going to highlight an exceptional woman in agriculture and share advice that they have learned through their experiences.
This month FarmHer recognizes one of our favorite FarmHer’s, Krysta Harden. Krysta is the Deputy Secretary of Agriculture for the United States Department of Agriculture and is an advocate for women everywhere. I had the honor to hear Krysta speak while she visited Iowa this past spring. She also played a huge role in bringing FarmHer to the USDA in Washington DC on National Ag Day in April. We are honored to have Krysta be featured in our FarmHer advice column.
Krysta quotes, “Women make great (farmers and ranchers) because they use their passions to get results, are great at multi-tasking and are used to working hard with little sleep.”
