Women play a significant role in NY agriculture, which was valued at $5.7 billion in 2012. Just under 20% of NY farmers are women, according to the 2012 Census of Agriculture. Members of NY Agri-Women are involved with numerous facets of NY agriculture, among them: dairy farming, vegetable production, wine production, agribusiness, extension, and maple production.

New York Agri-Women was founded in 2010 and is a state affiliate of American Agri-Women.

New York Agri-Women makes its mission advocating agriculture by educating consumers, elected officials, and members of the agriculture community about the issues that affect New York food and agriculture.
