“Volkert is part of a trend among women who aren’t necessarily farming to make a living. Instead, they want to provide better food for their families and communities. While the number of farms owned and operated by women has tripled in the U.S. in recent decades, the USDA says most women-owned farms have annual sales of less than $10,000, tend to be smaller and have less acreage. They account for only 3 percent of total U.S. sales.”
