If you can pee behind a barn with two underlayers on and a pair of bib overalls on top without a drop on your boots, you might be a farm woman.
If you've fallen in love with an orphaned or sickly animal and heard yourself say, "it can just stay in the bathroom..." you might be a farm woman.
If you feel perpetually split in half by the pressure to be farm-tough versus the pressure to just be pretty, you might be a farm woman. And, farm woman, this book is for you.
Farm women are tough, compassionate, and resourceful. At only 36% of the U.S. Farmer population, female farmers have to fight for the connection and camaraderie they deserve. Whether you're a farm mom adjusting to new routines, a city kid with big ag dreams, a horse girl, a rancher, or a farmpreneur, Grace, Grit & Lipstick welcomes you into the sisterhood of the soil.
Author and fourth-generation farmer Shelby Watson-Hampton's Grace, Grit & Lipstick is an ode to the real lives of rural women. With humor, hard-won wisdom, and a wealth of practical how-to's, Watson-Hampton's account of farming-while-female offers farm women at all stages the skills and support to thrive in the farmed life.
