MONROE - Farm tours at six small family Green County farms that are led by women will be offered Sunday, Sept. 8 as part of the Soil Sisters event. "According to the last U.S. Census of Agriculture, women-owned farms increased 30 percent, making women farmers one of the fastest growing groups of new growers," said Lisa Kivirist, director of the Rural Women's Project, a venture of the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service supporting women farmers, and owner of Inn Serendipity in Browntown. "Soil Sisters highlights a cross-section of inspiring women farmers in south central Wisconsin prioritizing small-scale, diversified, community-focused agriculture."
