In February 1992, Victorian women met to discuss how they might form a state-wide organisation for women in agriculture. The outcome was on an organisation that could provide recognition of women as farmers, break down isolation and encourage access to decision making both behind and beyond the farm gate. We set out to connect women across Victoria. The concept proved too big for a couple of state boundaries and soon we had members from across the nation. Together they began to fulfill our prime commitment to unite and raise the profile of agricultural women.
