About Us

United Farmgirls sprouted from a tiny seed of a dream: to create an online community and informational website exclusively for women farmers, homesteaders, and gardeners.

It all started with founder Dee Dee, who wanted to keep in touch with the great group of ladies who sold alongside her at local farmers markets. She was looking for a place where they could share knowledge, support each other, even create barter opportunities. There were lots of gardening sites on the web, but nothing seemed like a good fit for these hardcore farmgirls, who went a step beyond gardening into serious animal caretaking, food growing, and harvest storage. So Dee Dee did what any multifaceted farmgirl would do. She created her own! OHH Farmgirl was born.

As OHH Farmgirl’s loyal community grew, it became clear that it had outgrown its spot. A transplant was necessary, and United Farmgirls is the result. In our new, richly fertile home, you’ll find killer articles, wise words, and personal experiences from farmgirls across the nation, committed to sharing wisdom on all the topics that we want to hear about from growing food to animal caretaking to agricultural business to taking great care of your skin and body. We believe that women have the power to make the world a greener place one garden plot at a time. United Farmgirls celebrates and supports that power. Farmgirls unite!
