The PA Veteran Farming Project connects Veterans, Guard, and Reserve members with agriculture resources and each other. The Troops to Tractors program, a non-profit organization fiscally sponsored by the Westmoreland Conservation District, assists Veterans with finding on-farm or agribusiness apprenticeships, which may be approved for GI Bill On-the-job training for eligible Veterans.
Are you a southwestern PA Veteran, Guard or Reserve member thinking about starting a farm business, but not sure how to get started? The Exploring the Small Farm Dreamcourse is designed to help you decide whether starting a farm business is right for you.
