Rural veterans love their country, their family and their land. They are the leaders who mobilize when natural disasters impact small towns. They act to help others in need. Together we aim to discover creative solutions that protect the veteran from illness and injury while farming. How does one’s service (whether deployed or not) increase their risk while working in agriculture? We know military exposure can impact ones health. When you combine military exposure with farm hazards and financial mental strain of farming what are the health disparities? We believe that veterans can farm strong while farming well.
