Homegrown by Heroes
Homegrown Heroes is a program manged by the Farmer Veteran Coalition which allows eligible producers (those who are active members of the military or honorably discharged veterans) to use a special label on their farm products. These products must be grown or produced on a farm owned by the service member or veteran.
The Farmer Veteran Coalition was started to increase the veteran and active military involvement in the agriculture and farming sectors. Agriculture is well suited to veterans; it is dynamic, fast paced, and has been proven to be therapeutic for those suffering from physical injuries and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
