Veterans Affairs Presents Soldier's Harvest

North Carolina's agricultural sector not only provides our veterans with great possibilities to explore new business ventures or homesteads, it also utilizes many of the same characteristics needed to be a soldier, particularly perseverance.

The new digital series Soldier's Harvest follows several veterans transferring skills gained and lessons learned as they capitalize on exciting educational and partnership opportunities in the transition from military to farm life.

From gaining desired solitude to coping with PTSD through working with animals as a cattle farmer, to assisting veterans with buying and building a farm through the Soldier to Agriculture program, these are the stories of veterans who have successfully made the transition and their experiences as part of our state's agricultural community.

Farming—it rejuvenated everything about who I am.
It gave me a sense of purpose and gave me a sense of being able to serve my community one more time.
