Information on support for farmers and farming families.
The farmer is the most important asset on a farm. Focusing on our own health and wellbeing, and not just that of our animals, crops and machinery, is vital to running a successful farm.
Taking time out will enable us to farm both effectively and safely as well as help us develop new habits to support our health and wellbeing. Mental health is equally as important as our physical health and it is vital that we give both the attention that they need so we can farm both productively and efficiently. By establishing a positive self-care routine for ourselves and the farming family we can have a happier and healthier work life balance whilst improving our personal wellness. There are some great information and resources on rural support below.
