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, the more options may be 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 at 919-542-1396 and press #1 for the Farmer Crisis Hotline or toll-free at 866-586-6746. The hotline is open Monday-Friday from 9am to 6pm.
