‘Ladies from the Land Australia’ is an Instagram page dedicated to encourage, uplift and support rural and remote women in Australia. The page features photographs and stories of women in agriculture living in rural areas all over Australia, in hopes to encourage and inspire the unique and blessed lives of other ladies in similar circumstances to themselves. \
Run by 24-year-old Emma Jackel, it is a great method of connecting with other women dedicating themselves to the land, defying patriarchal stigmas within the agricultural industry or juggling a source of income whilst maintain a household with children.
Edwina Robertson is a country girl through and through. Born and raised on a property in Northern NSW, the now entrepreneur and business owner aims to promote women in agriculture and female based business promotion.
The keynote speaker, country wedding photographer and expert Instagram trainer has two key businesses; @women_making_gravy and www.edwinaroberston.com (photography business) in which she teaches women in business how to boost their sales and shares her country wedding photographs.
Emme Williams is a 22-year-old woman from Bendick Murrell, NSW. She shares her journey as a Veterinary Science student at Charles Sturt University whilst promoting women in agriculture through her photographs, stories and second farm account @willawari.
Her Instagram defies the notion that agriculture is a primarily male-dominated industry through her photographs of both working and living on the land. Her collaborations also help advertise different rural brands (check it out, there is some great clothing!).
The face behind the Cattleman’s Daughter, Camille, is a cow enthusiast, horse lover and woman in agriculture, as well as being a member of the Young Livestock Exporters Network.
Her raw and honest account posts Q&A’s and shares her experiences as a young female living and working on the land on her isolated family station (@kalyeeda.station). It is a great account to follow if you want to learn more about the station life, as well as female related aspects including feminine hygiene and mental health when rurally isolated.
Grace McLeod is another young lady living and working on the land. She encourages women in agriculture through her beautiful photographs displaying the simple luxuries of everyday life; from wildlife, ripper sunsets and the diverse colours of the outback to camping under the stars and getting a job done.
Her second account @scribblesbygrace displays her country styled artwork (so if you’re looking for a new piece of art-check it out!).
