Families who live and farm together have challenges other families don´t face. While this provides an opportunity to build closeness, it also creates stress and conflict. Effective communication and decision-making is critical to balance the needs of the family living on the farm with the needs of the farm business. Shared decision-making and effective communication are keys to healthy families. Family and farm meetings help to achieve these goals. Watch a farm family meeting and learn about a communication assessment tool for farm families to gain awareness of their communication style that will aid in decreasing conflict during family and farm meetings.
