Farm Family Meeting Series

Health & Well-Being For The Next Generation 


Are you living in rural Ireland and feeling alone?
Confused about the future of your farm?

According to the 2019 Ifac Irish Farm Report, 86% of Irish farmers do not have a succession plan. And 43% of those surveyed said that they believe their business is not viable enough for succession. This report also hit the financial pressures many farmers are facing.

Some of the things we know farmers are concerned about:

  • Reduced prices for their produce
  • Cuts to subsidies and increasing costs
  • Brexit and how it may impact them through market access

When we consider the stress and anxiety caused by the above issues and then add in isolation, loneliness, concern over climate change and extremes of weather, it is no wonder that mental health becomes a real issue.

If you or someone you know is troubled about their future, then listen up. We understand. And we are here to help.

Join us on February 10 for a special event. We are gathering the community and we will share information that you can use to help feel more connected and get answers. The planned meeting is being run under a programme we call our “Fresh Pastures Programme” which deals with Health and Wellbeing of farmers, farm families and rural dwellers.
