Opportunities offered for veterans in farming

The California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) invites veterans and their friends to view the latest video produced by the California Department of Food and Agriculture for their Growing California video series titled “From Service to Harvest” about veterans turning to farming after their military service is complete.

The video can be viewed above.

As noted in the video, the Farmer Veteran Coalition can help veterans plan for their new careers as a farmer. The Farmer Veteran Coalition can be found at or by calling 530-756-1395.

CalVet offers farm loans to eligible California veterans to acquire a farm property that will provide a livelihood for the veteran and his or her family.

Veterans may qualify for the purchase of a farm which is an acceptable agricultural property as determined by CalVet.

One of the basic requirements for a CalVet Farm Loan is that CalVet be assured that the veteran, performing as an average farmer under average conditions, can operate the farm on a sound financial basis.

For more information on CalVet Farm Loans call 866-653-2510 or email .
