S3 E1: WOMEN IN BUSINESS (AND FARMING) | Porch Cast Podcast
Welcome back to the Porch Cast!
Today, I sit down with Natasha McCrary, founder of 1818 Farms in Moorseville, Alabama, and recipient of Amazon’s Woman-Owned Small Business of the Year award! Natasha jumped in to farming after being in sales and computer programming. She started out with only a few sheep, to eventually adding goats, pigs, chickens and more! In a combined effort between family and a strong business team, she has managed to grow her farm and business to what it is today. She tells us her advice on women starting their own business, what she wants us to know about farming, and how her business plan changed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
