No boys allowed in farming class in Baldwin

Posted:

BALDWIN, Wisconsin (WQOW) - Baldwin, Wisconsin is hosting a farming class strictly for women. "Annie's Project" helps women start up a farm or helps existing farmers get more cash for their crops.  The class is taught over six sessions.  One of the thing students are learning about is how to move their goods on the market.

Katie Wantoch, a UW-Extension Agriculture Expert says, "Looking at how they interact with their consumers, especially if they're direct marketing and doing retail. So that was one of our first sessions and then we looked at business plans and market research."

Students will also learn about licensing, safe food handling practices and rules on farm taxes. The class is funded through grants and sponsorships. Organizers say it's been very popular and they hope to bring it back to the area again.
