Program Description

In the morning, you will be partnered with business mentors from SCORE and the Small Business Development Center for one-on-one sessions to address your own specific knowledge, skills, and abilities required to successfully manage your farm as a sustainable business. There will also be a financial cash flow workshop to help understand and deliberately plan for profit, with or without VA disability compensation payments. The afternoon will consist of sessions to introduce and receive training on various assistive technologies that can address memory, physical, and organizational limitations.

In addition to workshop sessions, there will be a resource fair featuring organizations that provide services for veterans.

You will not want to miss this great opportunity to connect with other veteran farmers and learn specific business and assistive technology skills to help make you more successful in your farming life!”
