Patch presented in 2003 by the Yarram Women on Farms Gathering committee for the Women on Farms Gathering perpetual banner. The theme for the Yarram Gathering was 'Securing the Future.' The patch is now attached to the perpetual banner which is used at the Gathering each year.

Part of Museums Victoria's Invisible Farmer Project Collection. The Invisible Farmer Project was the largest ever study of Australian women on the land, uncovering the histories and stories of Australian women in agriculture and addressing the absence of rural women in mainstream histories and museums. It began as a pilot project (2015-2016) and evolved into a three year (2017-2020) nation-wide partnership between rural communities, academic, government and cultural organisations, funded by the Australian Research Council.
