"What I think is really important and really cool about this program...we're saying we're going to help veterans create their own business."  — CT DEPT. AGRICULTURE COMMISSIONER BRYAN HURLBURT

Many thanks to Renee DiNino from i-heart radio for sitting down with us to discuss the launch of the new CT Veteran Grown branding effort to support CT’s Farmer Veterans. This segment featured the Connecticut Department of Agriculture’s Commissioner Bryan Hurlburt and three incredible guests to chat about this program and opportunity for Veteran owned farmers in the state. This will air on all iHeartRadio stations in CT on Dec. 10, 2023. You can also listen to the podcast here too: https://theriver1059.iheart.com/featured/renee/
