Farm Building will be a program that offers participants one-on-one assistance in assessing and reducing risks to their business developments in areas of production, marketing, financial, legal and individual support, particularly for their military related experiences. The ultimate goal of the program is the support the development of viable business models that provide lifelong income production and learning, American job creation and to invigorate the economic health of rural communities. Veterans are well poised as citizens whose delayed entry into entrepreneurship brings unmatched maturity and life experience.

 “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
