With a busy calendar of events launching chapters and Homegrown By Heroes partnerships this fall, FVC will not be hosting a national Farmer Veteran Stakeholders Conference this fall. We are working now on plans for our next conference in November 2018. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you all soon!
Farmer veterans from across the country came together November 30 to December 2 at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan, for the largest gathering of military veteran farmers in the nation. Three hundred farmer veterans, including the agricultural, governmental and nonprofit groups that support them, attended the conference which featuring guest panels, distinguished speakers, educational tracks, farm visits and networking.
This year’s conference, the third annual, was themed “United We Farm” and was hosted in partnership with Farmer Veteran Coalition of Michigan and Michigan State University’s Vets to Ag program.
