 h1. Dear readers,
 The farmer who owns my CSA is a woman — and she's not an anomaly: According to Modern Farmer, 30 percent of U.S. farmers (primary and secondary operators) are women. As we point out in a Sift item this week, that number could (and should) go higher, but we're encouraged.

 Thanks to Modern Farmer, I discovered Marji Guyler-Alaniz's project FarmHer. An Iowa-based photographer who is intent on documenting women farmers at work, Guyler-Alaniz is doing important work. I hope you'll go take a look at her photos — and see the new face of farming.

 Editorial Director

 \I'd prefer to give you a USDA link for that statistic, but as many of you already know, the USDA site is down due to the current dust-up in Washington, D.C.
