Celebrating Women in Agriculture: Empowerment and Leadership

In honor of International Women’s Day, Wish Farms proudly hosted a remarkable gathering by the Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association (FFVA) to celebrate and empower women in agriculture. The morning kicked off with an impactful breakfast discussion held at our headquarters, where attendees gained insights from two trailblazing women: Elyse Lipman, CEO of Lipman Family Farms, and Raina Nelson, President & CEO of Westfalia Fruit USA.


Elyse and Raina delved into various topics, igniting inspiration and challenging norms within the agricultural sector. At the core of their discussion was the recognition of the multifaceted talents and strengths that women bring to the industry. They emphasized how these qualities act as a competitive advantage, enriching the industry with diverse perspectives and innovative approaches.

Throughout the conversation, the importance of courageous leadership was a recurring theme. Elyse and Raina urged women to embrace their roles as leaders, advocating for the recognition and valuation of their unique attributes. They highlighted the significance of celebrating the achievements of fellow women, fostering a culture of support and empowerment within the agricultural community.

Wish Farms is thankful to be a part of such an impactful celebration of women in agriculture. As the industry progresses daily, we deeply appreciate the contributions of the strong women driving these advancements forward!
