Arcadia’s Veteran Farmer Program is a multilayered, hands-on educational program that develops new farmers; capitalizes on the growing market in local, sustainably grown foods; and encourages entrepreneurship and job creation. This robust program helps pay veterans to learn how to farm, helps them find affordable land, provides easy market access for the food they produce to satisfy public demand, and reinvigorates the farm sector with skilled new growers, eager to begin their next phase of life. In keeping with the objectives of the program, Jason will be leading a workshop on the comprehensive legal risks of farm businesses.
