Jan. 27: UD classes teach female entrepreneurs about ag business

January 25, 2010 under CANR News, Cooperative Extension, Events

Janet Mitchell, along with her husband, Jim, operate Woodside Farm Creamery, a successful small farm in Hockessin, Del., that serves up homemade ice cream made with milk from the farm’s herd of Jersey cows. In addition, Mitchell is a small-animal veterinarian in a busy suburban practice. Thus, Mitchell knows more than a little about ag business.

Nonetheless, she says she’s eager to take part in “Annie’s Project,” a national program that teaches female entrepreneurs about agriculture-related business. The program is being unveiled in Delaware this month by University of Delaware Cooperative Extension.

In Sussex, it will be offered at UD’s Elbert N. and Ann V. Carvel Research and Education Building, County Seat Highway in Georgetown. Late registrants will be accepted if space allows.
