Women’s Work on the Farm sometimes never Counted
I want to share an interesting note online on female role in farming.
Sondra Pierce and her husband, Matt, have been growing beets, hay and sunflowers in rural Boulder County, Colo., since they graduated from high school.
In the U.S., married couples run about a third of farms. But because of the way farm operations like the Pierces’ are structured, men show up in data more often.
“Technically, I don’t own the farm,” says Sondra. “I mean, I just work on it. Most of the things we sell are always in his name.”
