Colorado Master Farm Homemakers Guild

Ranch and farm women actively involved in agriculture or those who have retired from a farm or ranch livelihood may be eligible to become Colorado Master Farm Homemakers. Colorado is one of five states participating in the National Master Farm Homemakers Guild which recognizes women in production agriculture for their service to the industry and rural communities. Honorees are selected on the basis of leadership, family life and community involvement: they must derive at least 51 percent of family income from a ranching or farming operation.

Nominations should be submitted by a bona fide organization (including governing boards, school or church classes, and other recognized groups.) A nominee does not have to be a member of the group submitting her name. One winner will be selected from each of nine districts in Colorado. The Guild seeks nominations from every area of the state to reflect Colorado’s diverse agricultural industry. Deadline for nominations is July 15, 2011.

Established in 1954, the Colorado Master Farm Homemakers Guild is assisted in its award program by the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association, Colorado Farm Bureau, and Rocky Mountain Farmers Union along with the Colorado CattleWomen, Colorado State Grange and CSU Extension.

Complete details and nomination forms are available at most local county extension offices or may be obtained from Roberta Moellenberg, 30110 Co.
