VTF has led the way in training U.S. veterans in agricultural practices since 2013. Their 21 week course, offered free of charge, is the only of its kind in the entire United States. VTF believes that the farm is a place to learn and heal after military service. For many veteran's, this education leads to a new way of life and a means to support their families. You are invited to celebrate the 2019 harvest with VTF graduates. This important work would not be possible without the support of the community.
