Through FarmHer she is bringing the stories of women to the forefront of agriculture, food and rural communities. Marji has expanded the FarmHer brand to include a weekly award-winning national cable television show, a weekly SiriusXM radio show and podcast, a diverse array of digital and print media and a line of merchandise for women.
