Farmer Veteran
Events

FVC  events include: conferences, educational workshops and retreats, concert fundraisers, farm tours, webinars, etc… These types of events - both FVC hosted or by our partners-  provide veterans with an opportunity to meet face to face with agricultural and business experts, as well as veteran service providers. Events also provide the platform for networking between fellow veteran farmers.

 “I found working with livestock to be an incredibly rewarding experience and very therapeutic. I found I could live life fully again, have a sense of belonging, purpose, self-worth and joy. Things that were missing for far too long after my injury and during extended rehabilitation.” – David Beardi
