Do you see yourself in these post-its?
They're snapshots of Kiwi farming women looking for their place in their farming business.
These post-its are why we run Understanding Your Farming Business (UYFB) - our free programme empowering farming women with skills, confidence and #supportedgrowth.
Thanks to Red Meat NZ & Beef + Lamb New Zealand, UYFB returns this September at 11 locations across New Zealand. Come and join us.

Those that know me also know I’m a huge fan of this programme and what it can mean for women. I’ve been privileged to help deliver this programme over a number of years and witness those “aha” moments amongst many other moments. The programme has something for everybody - whatever age, stage or level of involvement in a NZ pastoral farm business. For farmers, by farmers.
Love the work of our facilitation team all over NZ, empowering farming women in their businesses & communities! #keepingitreal with Red Meat NZ, Ministry for Primary Industries, Beef + Lamb New Zealand.
New 2020 programmes just launched today too - check out awdt.org.nz/uyfb/So wonderful to have Agri-Women's Development Trust (AWDT) down on the West Coast sharing their wisdom and passion for rural NZ. ... See MoreSee Less
and you have a couple of great ladies there to empower the already mighty west-costers!
Let's hear it for Hastings!
Introducing our newest Understanding Your Farming Business graduates. It was a privilege to support these farming women from the Hawke's Bay grow as #criticalfarmingpartners in their farming business.
We are just days away from announcing the locations of the September series of Understanding Your Farming Business. Should we bring our most popular course to your town? Let us know in the comments!
Thanks again to Red Meat NZ - their support keeps Understanding Your Farming Business free.

We called 300 Kiwi farming women this week. And we got 300 different stories.
These ring-arounds remind us why AWDT does this work, and why we love this community. We’re all running 100 miles an hour - balancing kids, farms, jobs, study and more – but so many of you still took the time to share a story (or a laugh) and recommend a friend who’s ready for one of our programmes. Thanks.
Our next series of Understanding Your Farming Business starts in September. If you think your town is right for our most popular programme (supporting farming women to confidently find their place in their farming business) – tell us where & why in comments and we’ll get in touch.
Help us bring the programme to you, and bring a few local Kiwi farming women into this community.
Thanks to Red Meat NZ UYFB is fully funded. You can learn more at www.awdt.org.nz/uyfb Beef + Lamb New Zealand ... See MoreSee Less
The West Coast please. I have done UYFB & Loved it, it would be great if other ladies on the Coast got to experience this.
Waitaki region would be fab. Such a diverse region with dairy, high country, sheep and cropping. Very central for many women working in our ag sector
Taumarunui or anywhere in the king country please
Earth movement ♥️
Murchison, South Island - heaps of fab farming women here and in the surrounding Valleys who I think would really benefit from it. I’ve done the course and LOVED it. Wish I could even do it again!
Mid Canterbury, because who wouldn't want to visit Mt Somers!!
What a great initiative!!
