Women Involved in Farm Economics



Women Involved in Farm Economics (WIFE) was established in December, 1976 as a non-partisan voice for women in agriculture and the operations they represent. Due to the nurturing and undying determination from each of its members, WIFE is now one of the most respected and viable agriculture organizations in the nation.

For over 40 years, WIFE members from all over the country have been gathering once a year to socialize, learn from industry leaders, and plan for the future of the organization. This year, the theme is “Empowering WIFE ­- Igniting your passion for agriculture.” We hope each member will leave excited about the work WIFE is doing and equipped with the tools to fight for the industry and the core beliefs of the organization.
