Crisis Resources

Posted on: July 18th, 2018 by

Farming is good honest work, but it can be stressful and bad situations can feel overwhelming. Crisis may be as close as next harvest, or a bank not renewing the crop note. If you’re feeling like you don’t have what it takes to keep going, ask for help; there are resources available to people just like you. You don’t have to deal with the crisis on your own.

Here are some resources that may be helpful:
