International Exchange Project between women in Co Kerry, Ireland and women in Poznan, Polska.


This new initiative will help us boost our entrepreneurial capabilities at all levels and unlock our innovation potential. It will also help basic producer practices, including demand and supply, cost curves, and the womens’ profit maximizing decision rule for production. Here are some sustainable agriculture basics: Crop Rotation. Crop rotation is one of the earliest methods of sustainable farming, and has been employed since the mid-19th century. … 

Integrated Pest Management…

Water Conservation… 



In many ways, farmers are the ultimate entrepreneurs, constantly innovating, growing businesses by themselves and taking full responsibility for all aspects of product delivery. Entrepreneurs could learn a lot from our women farmers.


This is an International Exchange Project between women in Co Kerry, Ireland and women in Poznan, Polska. 

The Project is a collaboration between 3 groups of Women: Entrepreneurs, Local Producers and Farmers from Co. Kerry, Ireland – Poznan.We started our exchange in the autumn of 2021 We made exchange trips during September, October and November 2021 that was developed and funded under the LEADER Rural Development Fund. Every one of us has their own speciality and previous experience that makes all of us unique. Together we are a diverse and creative group who offer a wide range of entrepreneurial, production and farming experiences.

We will post updates, events and general happenings from our exchange visits.
