FarmHer

Friday, April 13 – 9:30 PM ET / 8:30 PM CT / 7:30 PM MT / 6:30 PM PT

FarmHer Host Marji Guyler Alaniz takes a trip to Maine's largest dairy to meet Jenni Tilton-Flood, a FarmHer with a heart of gold. Then, Lexi Marek heads down to southern Georgia, where fifth generation FarmHer Jan Jones shares her passion for peanuts.

According to the USDA’s most recent census report, the number of women-led farms has tripled over the past four decades and remains one of the fastest-growing groups in the United States. Today females make up 32% of the farming workforce and are almost one million women strong. Despite these powerful statistics, female farmers have often gone unnoticed in farm imagery…until now. “FarmHer” focuses its camera lens on women in agriculture through the eyes of photographer and TV host Marji Guyler-Alaniz, who takes viewers coast to coast on a journey capturing the story of women and their connection to the land through her camera.   

Each episode features a glimpse of agriculture through a unique lens: The female perspective. The women of “FarmHer” are passionate and determined to make a difference in the lives of their families, communities and around the world. Some have been through tragedy, others have seen victory … but all of them are connected through their love of agriculture. 

“The diversity of operations and the stories of the women who are an integral part of them will continue to expand throughout season two,” Guyler-Alaniz said. “We’ll take viewers from a potato farm in Maine to a whitetail deer farm in the south. We’ll travel from the green mountains and grapes of northern California to Florida, where we’ll visit an almost 90-year-old rancher. In Iowa, we’ll experience a large herd of wild horses and a small greenhouse operation. The women I have met have amazing stories to tell and I can’t wait to continue our FarmHer journey with the RFD-TV audience.”

FarmHer is working to change the way people perceive a farmer by sharing the stories of the women who live and lead in agriculture. Women have always been an important but mostly unseen aspect of agriculture. In recent years, women are rising to the forefront of agriculture in so many ways; as owner/operators, landowners, workers, mentors and much more.
