I watched the video of that young boy fighting for human rights. Very very touching and inspiring.
I wanted to give you an update. Last month we hired on 3 disabled combat veterans, and this month we are planning on hiring 2 more. On the farm we now have blueberries, chickens, guineas, goats, turkeys, bees, datil peppers and this Friday we are digging a pond to grow tilapia fish. It’s amazing to see the changes in these veterans.

Have a great day!
Nothing makes us happier than hearing from Adam Burke, the founder and inspiration behind Veterans Farm in Florida. Adam, a vet who returned to this country with serious injuries, including PTSD, recalled how much farming meant to him as he was growing up on a blueberry farm. Couldn’t others returning from war with both physical and emotional disabilities gain a renewed sense of purpose by working outside, tilling the earth, planting, harvesting?
It seems that Adam’s efforts have taken off as Veterans Farm expands its work.
We could not be happier to be part of this truly lifesaving effort. Think of it the next time you enjoy a bowl of blueberries!
