Farmers Assisting Returning Military (F.A.R.M.)
Farmers Assisting Returning Military (F.A.R.M.) serves our nations Veterans by helping them find peace, purpose and opportunity through therapeutic agricultural training. F.A.R.M. began as a program that introduces veterans to the many therapeutic benefits and structure of farming, better known as agricultural therapeutic rehabilitation or "dirt therapy". By renewing a veteran’s mission and purpose, the program addresses the disturbing trends of veteran homelessness, and the high suicide rate of 22 veterans per day. Our founders proved first-hand, the effectiveness of peer-to-peer dirt therapy with their own personal health and healing experiences. F.A.R.M. has been recognized by companies, universities, foundations, and individuals for its non-clinical approach toward assisting veterans. The organization’s success is based on veteran reintegration into civilian society through farming, job training, and a holistic approach in combating the invisible wounds of traumatic brain injury, PTSD, stress, anxiety and depression.
Together we can honor and celebrate the sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes — military, veterans, first responders and their families. Remember, honor, and celebrate our nation's heroes by participating in the event and raising funds to support organizations which help heroes and their families.
