“As a woman veteran and a farmer, attending this conference has made my life better,” said Althea Raiford, a retired Navy veteran and co-owner of Gilliard Farms in Brunswick, Georgia. “The resources provided and the connections made cannot be duplicated anywhere else. I met my soil sisters at this conference—women with like minds.”
