2021 Fellowships Announced – 100+ Farms Get a Giant Boost

A small grant program through the Farmer Veteran Coalition (FVC) is helping.

More than 100 farmer veterans received word Friday that they are being awarded equipment thanks to the Farmer Veteran Fellowship Fund. The grant supports veterans in their early years of farming and ranching.
