Connecting with Fellow Farmer Veterans
Gathering together as farmer veterans with individual goals, but in a united spirit of camaraderie...

Members often share their highlight of our conferences:
connecting with other members directly. To exchange ideas and tools. To share start-up stories, challenges faced, and obstacles overcome. To hear that others have struggles, too.

We look to recreate this in a virtual capacity.
Registration has a box for you to indicate topics on which you'd like to connect with other farmer veterans.

Just let us know, and we'll try to make it happen for you!

Our community is a wealth of knowledge, and we encourage you all to meet and build relationships with each other. Collaborate with those in your neighborhood and your state, and veterans all across the country, too.
Podcast #1: Heather & Ladonna
Just launched - Part 1 of a 3-part podcast on our 2020 conference. Thank you to member, and former Army Ranger, Shay Foulk for hosting.

First up, on this episode:
Twin sisters Ladonna and Heather of Hollyaire Farm in Oregon explain how they cleaned up an abandoned 15-acre property after their service in the Air Force, and now farm it to sell holly wreaths and cherries.

Listen in for the 3 reasons why they found last year’s conference in Austin invaluable, with a look ahead to why our 2020 “gathering” is a must!

They headline our "Sweet or Crunchy" breakout session on orchards - fruit and nut trees. We're in for a treat; the twins are a delight. They complete each others thoughts, and they complete each others sentences.

From the Director
It is time to say Hello! 

Transitioning into the role of Executive Director for the Farmer Veteran Coalition during this unique time in our nation’s history has indeed been interesting! I would like to thank so many of you for the warm welcome and words of encouragement. I look forward to traveling soon and having the opportunity to meet you and hear all the details of how you have helped your local communities during these difficult days!

My mantra from the first day I arrived at the FVC office has been that - no matter what - “service never stops." Our farmer veterans have not stopped farming, and we will be here to answer your questions, provide guidance, and serve you. 

That level of service is apparent in how carefully FVC’s staff planned the content for the virtual conference for you this year. I am grateful at how quickly staff has pivoted on our original conference plans to now create a virtual experience that presents tools that I know will help our members rise to the challenges that we all face ahead. 

Together, we will confront the obstacles of this economic recession, and assist in our nation’s recovery.
