Calling All Women In Agriculture

The Scottish Government has commissioned research to build a picture of the role women play in agriculture across Scotland. Research undertaken in other parts of the UK, Europe and beyond shows that women’s work on crofts and farms is under-reported and women are not well represented in agricultural organisations, but there has been no research in Scotland. We invite women who live or work on crofts and farms to complete the survey. In addition, focus groups and interviews will be conducted with both women and men working in the agriculture sector, including those who do not live on crofts and farms. Findings will help to inform the development of government policy interventions. All responses will be strictly confidential. For further information on the research click here.
