The life of a farmer can be rewarding; however, it is not without its share of challenges. From isolation to difficult weather conditions, there are many experiences that can take a toll on mental health and wellbeing. For some, it can all start to feel a little overwhelming.
Our Farmer to Farmer Crisis Support line is here to help by providing tailored support from someone who knows how tough it can get – a fellow farmer.
