BUCKNER, Ky. — Kim Kocsis, from Frenchtown, N.J., was featured in the January/February issue of Pink Tractor magazine, a publication for women in the agriculture industry. In the article, “From Bank Teller to No Till,” readers learn a little bit about Kocsis’ journey of becoming owner of Perpetual Harvest Farms, which supplies mulch hay to a mushroom farm in South Philly.
“Above and beyond the 31 percent of American farmers who are female, we know that many women work throughout the agriculture industry,” said Nancy Stephen, Pink Tractor editor. “At Pink Tractor we seek to bring awareness, education and empowerment to women in the ag community through our magazine and social networks.”
In 2014, PinkTractor.com was launched as an online community to support and encourage American women in agriculture. The following year, Pink Tractor magazine began. The publication has shined the spotlight on more than 80 women from 27 states and across all sectors of the ag industry. With its editorial focus and a nationwide distribution of over 30,000, the magazine includes informative articles empowering women in the areas of education, technology, equipment and farm life.
