Happy Mother’s Day to farmers

The Business of Food with Steve Alexander

Some farmers don't get the credit they're due because of their gender. To all of them, Happy Mother's Day!

Jenny Sauer-Schmidgall and daughter Hunter

Farming has long been a “man’s job,” even though women often worked as hard, or harder on the farm. But thanks to technological advances in machinery and less need for brute strength, more and more women are farming. On this Mother’s Day edition of The Business of Food, Steve Alexander pays tribute to farm moms as he visits with farmer Jenny Sauer-Schmidgall of Winchester, Illinois.
