Your foundation through the seasons of life

Your work is rooted in the land. Farm First is your connection to free and confidential support for all farmers and their families.


Farm First provides resources, support and counseling to help farmers resolve issues that cause stress.

Any farm owner and their family members have automatic and immediate access to 

confidential help with any personal or work-related issue.

Our staff of licensed counselors and agricultural resource specialists partner with farmers to solve
problems using a proactive, teamed approach. Throughout the past decade, we’ve learned a great deal about how to truly help farmers. Most importantly, our farmers have taught us how to speak their language and meet them where they’re at – often literally – and Farm First has provided individual counseling and critical resources along the entire spectrum of health. 

If it's on your mind, we can help.
