Homegrown by Heroes

Farmer Veterans keep Connecticut growing.

Have You Heard
About the Program?

The Connecticut Veteran Grown program has been brought to life thanks to a generous grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration. Awarded through Connecticut Resource Conservation and Development (CT RC&D), the grant is bringing much-needed resources to the state’s Farmer Veterans. The project is working to promote Farmer Veterans to consumers around the state and creating a resource hub to support them going forward. The overall objective is to support Veterans as they build a career in agriculture and assimilate back to civilian life, which can be a challenge. Veterans deserve all the resources available to be successful in agriculture.
