AG-Ceptional Women

A woman in Agriculture can take the lead
Whatever the challenge, whatever the need
She’ll rise to meet demands of the day
in her own unique phenomenal way
She’s much more than just exceptional
Yes, she is what we call AG-ceptional

A story to tell, a lesson to learn.
AG-ceptional women are taking their turn.
The seeds they plant grow tall and strong.
They’ve been ignored for far too long.
Let’s give credit where credit is due.
AG-ceptional women are making it through.

They make it through good times,
they make it through tough.
They make sure there’s more than enough.
They work, they give, they laugh, they love.
They stand tall when push comes to shove.
Let’s give credit where credit is due,
AG-ceptional women are tried and true.

The barn, the field, and tractor too,
Office, industry, business or school,
The garden, garage, yard, or home.
Wherever they are, let it be known.
The difference they make is felt, it’s real.
We cannot act like it’s no big deal.

They make it through good times,
they make it through tough.
They make sure there’s more than enough.
They work, they give, they laugh, they love.
They stand tall when push comes to shove.
Let’s give credit where credit is due,
AG-ceptional women are tried and true.
