Empowering Veterans to Thrive in Agriculture

One of the best ways to support farming veterans is to simply buy what they’re selling. Many VIA members sell directly to consumers. Use the map below to find a farming veteran in your area.

Many beginning farmer veterans are looking for land.  If you’re a landowner, you may be able to find a great tenant on this page. Iowa landowners can also receive a tax credit for leasing to a beginning farmer veteran or hiring a farmer veteran to custom farm their land.

Join here to be listed on the map and start finding customers, landowners, employers, or employees.
