Veteran Farmer Listening Session

  • Thursday, August 15, 2019, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Farmer Veteran Coalition of New York (FVCNY) in cooperation with partners across the state will be hosting a series of listening sessions to better assess the needs of our farmer veterans throughout New York State. Veterans engaged in agriculture, from those just beginning to farms with decades of experience are invited to share their needs, challenges, and perceived opportunities in their industries. If you are unfamiliar with the work of the Farmer Veteran Coalition, we encourage you to look at the organization’s website and join us as we discuss how we can better support each other’s endeavors.
