Women’s Conference


Create community and connection around rural entrepeneurship, food, farming and laughter

A gathering of farmers, makers, doers and leaders… an incubator for ideas, energy and connections that span across food, farming & beyond.

For nearly a decade the women of Montana Farmers Union have come together for the annual Women’s Conference. In 2023, the event will celebrate 10 years! The February event is well-known for its popular hot springs venue and diversity. Members come together for personal and professional development, to share farming and ranching practices and, of course, soak in the hot springs! Past speakers include Amber Smith (Women in Ranching), Mariah Gladstone (Indigikitchen), Audra Mulkern (Female Farmer Project) and Jolene Brown.

What people are saying about the Women’s Conference…

“What a wonderful experience, to meet and share ideas with so many other women across Montana. The people, the food and the hot springs were all great… it was just what I needed!”

“It’s so fun to connect with a group of amazing, inspiring women from all over MT. I wish there were more opportunities like this!”

“The Women’s Conference isn’t like other farm conferences, about what kind of feritilizer to put on what kind of crop. It’s about builidng you back up as a person.”
