A bit of a history: The Women's Land Army (WLA) was a British and American civilian organization created during the First and Second World Wars to work in agriculture replacing men called up to the military. Women who worked for the WLA were commonly known as Land Girls.
In effect the Land Army operated to place women with farms that needed workers, the farmers being their employers.
