Agriculture is an industry known for hard work, resilience, strength, and supportive community; however, farm families often experience many challenges such as low commodity prices, unpredictable weather, untimely equipment breakdowns, and a narrow window of opportunity to complete daily and seasonal work which often causes stress in the lives of farm families.



With the incredibly challenging financial and emotional situation plaguing the majority of farm families, University of Wisconsin-Extension Fond du Lac, Sheboygan, Ozaukee, and Washington counties will be hosting “Supporting Farmers During Challenging Times: THRIVE Today for Tomorrow” on Thursday, May 16 at Washington County Public Agency Center (333 E. Washington St., West Bend) or Friday, May 17 at UW-Extension Fond du Lac County (400 University Dr., Fond du Lac).
