New Hampshire has more farming females than other states

Nearly one third of the farms in New Hampshire are owned and operated by women, which is well above the national average. Farmers and agricultural officials believe that could help agriculture continue to grow in the Granite State.

These were some of the insights from a roundtable discussion at Dimond Hill farm in Concord, attended by Congresswoman Ann Kuster, and US Deputy Secretary for Agriculture, Krysta Harden.

Secretary Harden told the audience consumers tend to trust women. “Women have the credibility, frankly, in agriculture,” she explained.

The number of farms in New Hampshire has grown 5 percent since 2007.
