Marji Guyler-Alaniz

Marji Guyler-Alaniz, President and Founder of FarmHer will share her story of inspiration and finding her passion with FarmHer.  From the start of the project to where it is today, Marji will take you along with her on the FarmHer journey, introducing you to the strong, amazing women she has met along the way.  Their stories are told through still photographs of everyday work on the farm, mixed with heartfelt videos from her TV show, FarmHer. Through the women of FarmHer you will laugh, shed a tear and most importantly, will leave knowing your place in the culture of agriculture.

Lady Farmer

Of the over 26,000 farms in
Louisiana, 3,500 of them are
primarily operated by women.


All of these women in agriculture need our support, and any education we can provide them to help fuel their success is our goal. We are THANKFUL for these tireless workers, and the abundant bounty they provide for us, our families and our country.

Join us in empowering these women and giving them the knowledge and community to be as successful as possible as they grow Louisiana's future.
