1st generation farms present their own unique blessings and challenges. Today's guest Nathan Brown understands this very well. From growing up working on a neighbors farm to today owning and operating his own 1000+ acre operation, Nathan can speak in depth about the experience of a first gen farmer. About 3 years ago, Nathan noticed something among his peers. He noticed that there was an increased amount of stress in the farmers he spoke to. Not being one to let things fester, Nathan began speaking out about stress and mental health in agriculture. To this day, he has started or been a part of several efforts to break the stigma of mental health in ag. Nathan is a great man and a great friend and we are proud to have him featured on the podcast today!
