Farmer to farmer with Dan and Reidun Nicholson
Dan and Reidun can vouch that getting off the farm really helps manage stress and pressure. They enjoy the challenges of farming and having the whole family involved in the business, but find juggling both can be challenging at times. They try and get off-farm as much as possible, whether that’s just a coffee with friends or a game of squash. Also, getting outdoors and doing some exercise helps them feel revived and make decisions. Trusting other people to do their job also helps. It’s hard at the start, but they have realised it’s something that they need to do so they can get time off and come back with a new perspective.
