Learn about the work our partners are doing to help farmers and others in agriculture through difficult times.

Farming can be a stressful occupation. Often, you live where you work. Your coworkers may be your spouse and/or other family members. While you get to be your own boss, you feel responsible for a lot and can control very little.

Financial problems, price and marketing uncertainties, farm transfer issues, production challenges, marital difficulties, and social pressures can be real sources of stress -- even crisis -- for farmers and farm family members.
