Annie’s Project – Education for Farm Women is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational programs (Annie’s Projects) designed to strengthen women’s in the modern farm enterprise.  Annie’s Projects foster problem solving, record keeping, and decision-making skills in farm women.

 Farm and ranch women are generating a cultural tide in American agriculture that is moving management, assets and opportunities to a new wave of farmers across the country. At Annie’s Project courses, farm women become empowered to be better business partners or sole operators through networks and by managing and organizing critical information.

At the Cuming County Feeder's Banquet on April 23rd, a video about sustainability in the beef industry was shown featuring Cuming County Livestock Systems Educator Alfredo DiCostanzo.
