Farming is a challenging job and we understand that sometimes, things happen that are beyond your control. Farm crises take many forms and can result from many different issues — disasters, droughts, low grain prices, low yield, low cattle prices, etc. The earlier you seek assistance, you may find that more options are available to you.
Farmers: If you are in crisis (or know someone else who is in crisis) and need someone to talk to, please call us toll-free at 866.586.6746. The hotline is open Monday-Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
If you are in danger of losing your farm and/or home, you may be in need of more in-depth assistance from one of our farmer advocates. Call the Farmer Crisis Hotline to learn more.
