Encouraging female excellence in agriculture.
As a women’s organization that officially began in 1921, the Rutherford County Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee currently works as a sub-committee of the Board of Directors for the Rutherford County Farm Bureau. We are a dedicated group of volunteers who seek to make a significant impact by promoting awareness of agricultural issues, health, safety, and knowledge of agriculturally related subjects that impact our producers and the community surrounding us. Our first and foremost agenda is to work to continually educate the general public about farming and ranching practices that have stood the test of time and that impact our world. Some of our programs, projects, and volunteer opportunities are listed below.
