The Most Important Resource on the Farm is YOU.
You are the driving force behind keeping your operation going safely and effectively. If you find yourself incapacitated due to stress or mental health challenges, it’s just as important to give yourself time and attention as any other resource on the farm. Consider any one of your farm implements or machines - you wouldn’t leave them for years without proper maintenance like a thorough cleaning and oil change? So why do the same for yourself?
Fortunately, in recent years the Ontario agriculture sector has begun to catch up on creating tailored resources just for farmers to ensure we are serving for the most valuable people in our society - those who care for the land and livestock that put food on the table.
