The Farm Women’s Conference & Awards celebrated 35 years of recognizing rural women for their contributions to agriculture, community and their families.
Each year a Modern Farm Woman of the Year and a Pioneer Farm Woman of the Year award are presented. They are nominated to receive the awards by neighbours, friends, family members or co-workers who feel their contributions are noteworthy.
