Quotes and comments.
The West Virginia Women in Agriculture conference will take place Oct. 20-21 at Camp Dawson in Kingwood.
“We don’t want to be like other conferences that revolve around farming, because in our experience, we find that women generally learn differently and we want to maximize their learning. We focus on hands-on, peer-to-peer learning and have mentors in every track who are successful, West Virginian female farmers.” - Stacey Huffman, WVU Extension Service agent in Mineral County and conference chairperson
