Our leading agriculture team at Thrings is partnering with farmer and broadcaster Adam Henson to champion wellbeing and mental health in the farming sector through the Countryfile presenter’s podcast 'Keeping on Track'.


“We are delighted to be working with Thrings and welcome their genuine commitment to support the Keeping on Track podcast and wellbeing in the farming sector".


The Keeping on Track Podcasts, created by Adam Henson and Team Doctor, seek to explore the different mental health challenges faced by many farmers but which aren’t often talked about. The aim is to encourage more communication within the farming sector, prevent farmers from suffering in silence and enable them to receive the support they need before it is too late.

Across the UK, as many as 92% of farmers under the age of 40 consider poor mental health to be the biggest problem facing farmers today according to surveys by the Farm Safety Foundation. Meanwhile, research by the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI) has found that one-in-three farmers are possibly or probably experiencing depression.

As one of the country’s most prominent firms in agricultural law, Thrings has provided the farming community for more than a century with specialist agricultural legal advice. Now,Thrings is proud to support the rural sector in a different way by sponsoring the important Keeping on Track podcasts.



“Mental health in the farming community is an issue that has, for too long, flown under the radar, with farmers and working professionals failing to get the support they need. Through initiatives like Keeping on Track, we hope to start to see the tide turn".


Thrings’ Agriculture team is one of the largest of its kind in the UK with decades of experience in successfully supporting its farming and landowner clients to achieve their aims and the potential for their business. The firm has also been chosen by the NFU to act for its members in more countries than any other firm.
