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.
Farmer veterans who complete a training series stay connected to their peers and often develop ties to other farmers, increasing their ability to succeed. These farmer veterans 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 coming soon!
NCAT’s Armed to Farm team is planning several training events for 2022 and beyond. We’ll bring Armed to Farm to California, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, North Carolina, and more.
We will also offer a limited number of scholarships to veterans who want to attend agriculture conferences hosted by other organizations.
