FCN launch new film to highlight struggles of farming life

The Farming Community Network (FCN) has launched a new promotional film highlights the struggles that farming families across the UK face on a regular basis.

 

The film, sponsored by NSF International, shows a farmer visibly struggling to keep up with the day-to-day running of the farm.

 

He then speaks to a volunteer on the FCN helpline before welcoming an FCN casework volunteer to his farm, who walks with him and helps him find a positive outcome to his situation.

Misconceptions

 

Charles Smith, chief executive of FCN, said: “Through this film we want to highlight the fact that despite working in idyllic surroundings, the life of a farmer is not always as tranquil and comfortable as many would believe.

 

“It involves long hours, isolation, uncontrollable factors and a very uncertain future.

 

“We also want to reach out to those within the farming community who are having a tough time and let them know that they are not alone.

 

“Many out there will relate to the farmer in this film and the struggles he faces. To those people, please know that FCN is here for them, regardless of what their situation is.”
