Staying connected isn’t just good for you, it’s good for your health!

We are celebrating #WomensHealthWeek and invite farming women and men to have a virtual cuppa with the women of the NCFH on Thursday 10 September 2020.

Join in and share your story about the challenges women face in looking after their health, wellbeing and safety on the farm.

We’re also supporting the South Gippsland Cows in a Cloud Dairy Expo between 7-21 September and providing Victorian farmers a unique opportunity to check their health through a farmer focused telehealth consult. Online Ag Health consults provide access to trained agrihealth professionals who understand the specific challenges faced by people living and working on the land to help you identify specific health, wellbeing and safety risks.  

Register for a Cuppa with the Women of the NCFH or for a free Online Ag Health telehealth consult: CLICK HERE

We are four weeks into the #SnapshotRuralVic campaign and have already received over 500 submissions!

It’s been great to see and hear everyone’s stories on our Facebook Group and Instagram page about how they are spending their time in isolation across Victoria, including lots of lovely sunrises as farmers are checking their lambs and calves on cold, frosty mornings.

Submit your photos, videos, poetry or even a song to support the emotional and mental health of rural Victorians!

If you are not on Social Media you can also enter via our website and stay up to date with the Weekly Snapshot Shortlist.
