Each year, the agricultural departments Loire-Atlantique and Vendée offer three to four “Continue or Retraining” sessions in partnership with the MSA. In 3.5 days, in a neutral place, the farmers have time to talk to each other, make purchases, consider the future, and figure out possible support. In thirty years, 87 sessions have welcomed 1,250 farmers in Loire-Atlantique. Over the past five years, 80% of the participants had quit within two years.
