Join us in supporting Veterans who Farm

Since 2013, the Pennsylvania Veteran Farming Project network has worked to support veteran-owned farms and agribusinesses. Our members have served honorably in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, as well as active duty, Guard and Reserve members, and their spouses.

Our mission is Connection-- with education, mentoring, and support to build sustainable farms—both financially and environmentally. We do this through:

--Education—tours, workshops, webinars, Bee Bootcamp, and our annual state-wide conference

--Mentoring: formally through VA On-the-Job Apprenticeships and Army Career Skills Program for transitioning soldiers; and informally, pairing new or entering farmers with those with day-to-day experience farming.

 --Individualized resource referral to partners in conservation like the Keystone 10 Million Trees Program, state Service Foresters, county conservation districts, USDA resources for technical assistance and funding; commercial and non-profit lenders; subject matter experts from higher learning; and Veteran Service Organizations.

--And most importantly, veteran-to-veteran connections. Access to new markets, fostering relationships for peer-to-peer problem solving, and offering small grants to help veterans scale up.

Become a partner in supporting veterans who farm and own agribusinesses in Pennsylvania. Your gift to the IRS registered 501c3 Greenforge, Inc. as our fiscal sponsor is a tangible way of saying “Thank You” to those who have served and who now farm.
