On this week’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast, you’ll meet Adrienne DeSutter. Adrienne is part of her husband’s fourth generation grain farm family in midwest Illinois. They also have a small herd of cows and a small herd of children. With a degree in Counseling and a devotion to building self-worth, Adrienne set out to combat the mental health stigma in agriculture and help farm families recognize that their worth is more than the markets. She now works with farmers and ag organizations to promote healthy minds and identify valuable mental health resources. Through her social media presence (Sow Hope Grow Hope), she encourages followers to share their truths to inspire hope in others.
