Karen and Teresa grew up on a mixed grain and beef farm in Southern Manitoba and then headed off to further their education at university. Through various winding paths they both reconnected with their ag roots. In 2017 they co-founded FarmFemmes to promote a forward-thinking, innovative and technology rich view of agriculture. Karen and Teresa use, along with their social media presence, to connect with a broader audience to showcase what it means to be an agvocate, ag-extender and FarmFemme. They enjoy speaking about technology in agriculture and hosting coding camps for young people, because they believe that innovation is what will foster gen2gen connections and continue to evolve our farming operations. Teresa currently farms near Stockton, MB and Karen leads a data science team and farms near Morden, MB. You can learn more about them at or by searching FarmFemmes on Instagram, YouTube, Twitter or Facebook.
