"MIFFS Vets in Ag has been such help to me with getting my farm up and running! So thankful for their hard work and dedication!"
The Vets-In-Ag Network was created in response to a growing number of veterans who are interested in farming. Many veterans struggle to transition back to civilian life, so this network offers comradery to individuals who have many shared experiences. The task-oriented nature of farming is often appealing, and many vets return with skills that are transferable to farming - including a hard work ethic and a desire for a sense of purpose.
Activities for the Vets-In-Ag Network include:
Peer-to-peer demonstration farm visits
Integrated pest management workshops
USDA program navigation services
