About Armed to Farm
Supporting farmer veterans since 2013
Armed to Farm has supported more than 800 veterans with hands-on and classroom learning opportunities for sustainable agriculture since launching in 2013. Farmer veterans learn how to run a successful business and market their products, how to access USDA resources, set business goals, and develop meaningful mentorships with seasoned farmers.
Veteran farmers who complete a training series stay connected to their peers and often develop ties to other farmers, increasing their ability to succeed. These veteran farmers have access to individualized technical assistance and one-on-one consultations, in-person networking events and virtual learning opportunities through the National Center for Appropriate Technology.
Training opportunities are available now!
