Farmers' Friend

Would you benefit from talking to someone who understands the pressures that come with farming and is there to listen? 

Farmer’s Friend is here for farmers and their families living in the Wellington and East Gippsland shires who are doing it tough.  We can provide a listening ear over the phone or visit you on-farm, it’s your choice.  Our Farmers’ Friends are people who have been involved in farming over many years, who know how to really listen and can help you to tap into some really simple strategies to reduce stress. They are here to lend an ear if you need to debrief and suggest practical things you can do to help maintain your emotional health, which is just as important as your physical health.

If you are uncertain whether the Farmers’ Friend is for you, or you would like more information please contact the Farmers’ Friend Support Officer to arrange a confidential phone discussion on 5136 3500.

You can also fill out our simple online form below and we’ll get in touch with you.


If you or someone you know are at immediate risk of harm, please contact emergency services on ‘000’.
