Support Veteran Farmers right here in Pennsylvania

Since 2018, due to the generosity of members of our network,  veteran owned Heritage Farms in Fayette County, and The Skirted Soldier, three veteran-owned farms here in Pennsylvania have had help growing their small farm dreams. 


These veterans are continuing to serve by paying it forward--helping their fellow veterans grown their farms and agribusinesses. 

 

Join them by supporting our PA Veteran Farming Small Grant Fund. Please mail your check payable to "WCD" with Troops to Tractors in the memo line to:

A Marine Corps veteran purchased a milking machine for his small goat herd; an Army veteran received help renovating the barn where her fellow veterans learn equine management skills; and this year, a Navy veteran was able to install cross fencing for rotational grazing for her cattle and goats.
