Welcome to the Returning Veterans to Agriculture Project

This site is dedicated to gathering and communicating resources for veterans who are interested in returning to or starting careers in agriculture and in rural communities.

America’s farmers and rural communities are vitally important to our nation’s economy, producing the food, feed, fiber and fuel that continue to help us grow.  America needs generations of leaders in American agriculture to continue our position as the number one agricultural country in the world.

“The skills and work ethic our veterans bring from military service are valuable assets when it comes to providing the food, fiber and fuel we need to keep America going strong.”

— Tom Vilsack, United States Secretary Of Agriculture
