Join the Farmer Veteran Coalition
Farmer Veteran Coalition is the nation’s largest nonprofit organization assisting veterans–and currently serving members–of the armed forces to embark on careers in agriculture. With a nationwide network of more than 30,000 veterans—and growing—we’re helping America’s bravest men and women serve our country a second time, by feeding it.
Farmer Veteran Fellowship Fund
The Farmer Veteran Fellowship Fund is a small grant program that provides direct assistance to veterans who are in their beginning years of farming or ranching. Awards range from $1,000 to $5,000.
The Homegrown By Heroes Label
The Homegrown By Heroes (HBH) label is the official farmer veteran branding program of America. The label serves to inform consumers that agricultural products donning the logo were produced by U.S. military veterans.
Agricultural suppliers and service providers have teamed up with us to offer our members discounts including Kubota Tractor Corporation, FarmTek, Growers Supply, Johnny’s Selected Seeds, Dadant & Sons Bee Supplies and Oregon Tilth.
Support and Guidance
Looking for a training program, internship or mentor? Have questions about what resources are available for veterans? Need help with a business plan? Our Outreach Team is available to chat via phone and email, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PST.
National Stakeholders Conference
The Farmer Veteran Stakeholders Conference is the largest national annual gathering of the agriculture and military communities and features three days of education, distinguished speakers, guest panels, networking, farm tours, camaraderie and much more. This year’s conference is being held Nov. 13 to 15 in Oklahoma City.
When FVC began in 2007 we could find no groups with the mission of helping veterans in agriculture. We have led this effort ever since.
