HELLO AND WELCOME
Welcome to Farmher Bloggs!
Here I’ll be sharing the process and findings of my PhD research project documenting the roles of women in UK agriculture.
If you have any thoughts or questions - I’d love to hear from you.

While the position of women in agriculture has definitely improved, there is still much that can be done.
Research and initiatives across other developed countries show that increasing visibility and supporting women's development can unlock untapped talent and drive industry forwards.
Women and men are vital partners in farming. This research is not about giving women in agriculture special treatment or an advantage over men.
Rather, it is to use robust research methods to remove subjectivity and explore what challenges and opportunities currently exist in the UK – and make actionable recommendations based upon this.
Solid research will help empower, rather than divide industry.
