The Farmer Veteran Coalition Partnership and the Farm Bureau have teamed up to encourage veterans to become farmers or seek employment in the agriculture industry. The groups released a guide for veterans interested in transitioning into agriculture, and plan to help them find farms they can buy or work for and offer assistance in purchasing farm equipment. 44% of people in the military come from rural areas, even though only 17% of Americans live in rural areas. The FVCP is hoping to return some of that talent to its rural roots.
