Welcome to FarmWell, a one stop resource to help you and your farm business stay strong and resilient
Planning for the future can be a daunting process, especially in farming where we are experiencing so much change. The internet has opened up a wealth of information, but for those who are not ‘computer savvy’ or who work alone, it can be difficult trying to ‘sort the wood from the trees’.
FarmWell presents useful information to support you, the people around you and your farm business. We have developed the platform to be easy-to-understand and designed to assist you with any issues you may be having on the farm. Using the buttons / navigation above, you can explore what our FarmWell platform has to offer.
You may find FarmWell can help you find an answer and a positive way through whatever the problem may be that you’re experiencing. And if not, you can contact FCN on 03000 111 999 / firstname.lastname@example.org – our volunteers understand farming and its pressures and are here to listen and help.
A culture change in farming
FarmWell is all about farming well – making sure that we all find a healthy work-life balance on the farm that allows for us to look after our mental and physical health while operating the farm business. As an industry we need to normalise talking about our problems, taking time off where we can and not feeling guilty when we do. This year’s FCN FarmWell Award winner, Scott Dewart, has shared a video about how he finds a balance that works for him on the farm:
The Journey Ahead
Informed by the expertise and input of more than 40 different organisations, The Journey Ahead is our new publication to support the farming community in planning ahead and managing change. The publication is based on content sourced for our Time to Plan campaign, which we ran via FarmWell from October 2020 – March 2021. You can access the book below:
