Women of the Ranch

Date and Time: September 18, 2021, 2:00 PM CT

Location: Pioneer Bluffs Ranch Main Barn, 695 Ks Highway 177, Matfield Green
(view on google maps)

Farm and ranch women typically play many roles. They are some combination of daughter, wife, mother, business partner, driver, drover, and cowhand all rolled into one. And a woman who began filling these roles in the first part of the 20th century has witnessed extraordinary change. It is likely that she has hauled water to bathe her children, cooked over a wood stove, and spent time behind a team of horses.

At 2:00 p.m. Saturday, September 18, Mark Feiden and Farrell Hoy will share highlights from interviews with farm/ranch women. A panel discussion with some of the interviewees will follow the film screening. This Prairie Talk will be held in the loft of the historic barn at Pioneer Bluffs near Matfield Green.

Covid precautionary measures will be taken, including limiting the size of the audience to 75. Reservations for this Talk are required, and accepted first-come. Masks will be required inside the barn. To make this important project available to all, it will be recorded and later shared on the Pioneer Bluffs website.

This is a free community event. Reservations should be made to Executive Director, Lynn Smith, at lynn@pioneerbluffs.org or 620-753-3484.
