Direct Driller is looking for female farmers to write for their “Farmer Focus” articles

Written by Annie Winn

If you’re a female farmer in the agricultural industry who would like to share your journey in farming, explain how agriculture is changing whilst telling us what you know about the SFI scheme, regen ag, farming practices and more, please get in touch.

Direct Driller is calling for women who continuously contribute and drive the agricultural industry forward, to give them the platform they deserve whilst raising awareness of how vital a female’s contribution is and perspective can be.

Annie, the Creative Content and Marketing Manager for Direct Driller magazine (Agri Web Media) and the driving force behind the call for women participants, says, “Even before joining the agri industry, I’ve always been an advocate for supporting women where I can. I know the word ‘feminist’ can cause eyebrows to raise, but I really do think it’s important to understand that women are still sitting politely beneath the surface, especially in this industry.”

She continues, “I’m not from a farming background but I’ve been in the industry for about 9 years now, which I love, and I’ve learned so much along the way. I’m also not afraid to point out the obvious; in this case, my marketing campaign for Direct Driller at Cereals in June is very focused on men in farming, which I don’t have a problem with, of course. However, I know there are female farmers out there who would probably love to have the chance to get their voices heard too, so why not ask them to join us?” She smiles, “I think everything in life is about balance, and by no means is this meant to divide men and women. I’d just love to see some women farmers featured in our magazine and Direct Driller at Cereals marketing campaign as well. So, if you’re interested, we’d love to have you on board!'”

The aim for the campaign for Direct Driller magazine and Direct Driller at Cereals 2024 is:

  • To encourage and create balance throughout the Direct Driller magazines and marketing by having a greater range of writers.
  • To create awareness for women’s contribution and influence within the industry.
  • To give the opportunity and allow Direct Driller’s platform to share women’s experience and knowledge.

Direct Driller Magazine would like to take this opportunity to thank all their current article writers , supporters, sponsors and patrons (male and female) and wish to encourage more female farmers to join the “Farmer Focus” community.
