IWCA series: Heather Watson

While Heather Watson didn’t grow up on a farm, most of her youth she was drawn to agriculture, nature and farming, whether it was through her part-time job at a local farm supply store or living near farmland. After initially obtaining her Master’s degree in English literature, Watson pivoted her focus to farm business management, establishing herself in Eastern Ontario – and never looked back. Now as executive director of Farm Management Canada, Watson focuses on promoting farmers’ leadership development and elevating the voices of traditionally underrepresented groups in farming.

In this episode of AgAnnex Talks, Watson, one of the 2022 Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture, speaks with Manure Manager and Drainage Contractor editor Bree Rody about what she’s learned about work-life balance, the importance of mentorship, uplifting others’ voices and more. 

IWCA is a program created by the agricultural brands at Annex Business Media designed to recognize women who make a difference in Canada’s ag industry and provide them with a platform to share their knowledge, triumphs and advice.
