COUNSELING

Long hours, physical challenges, crop & weather uncertainty, isolation, and home and work together make farming uniquely challenging. Seeking help when feeling stressed is important.

Our staff can visit your farm and provide you with the support of someone to talk to about farm stressors. Talking ends isolation and can provide you with new ideas.
