Award-winning farmer Lisa Mumm is a dedicated leader in the field of seed harvesting and seed policy. As a fourth-generation organic seed farmer, Lisa has a wealth of experience growing specialty seed crops. Her business, Mumm’s Sprouting Seeds, works with family farmers around the world to supply over 100 varieties of seeds for growing sprouts and microgreens. She is also the go-to advocate for good governance of seeds to protect Canadian farmers and Canada’s global seed sovereignty.

In this episode of AgAnnex Talks, Mumm, one of the 2022 Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture, speaks with Canadian Poultry editor Brett Ruffell about taking risks, her defining moment, work-life balance and the biggest challenges women in agriculture still face today.

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.
