Veterans turn to farming jobs, receive assistance through Farmer Veteran Coalition

2 min read

Veterans have an opportunity to use the land they fought to defend, getting assistance along the way.

Evan Boone used to spend his days fixing fire trucks during his four years in the Air Force. Now, he spends his days tending to cows, pigs, sheep and chickens.

He started out with a small farm at his last assignment at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. He said his wife and him fell in love with the farming lifestyle, deciding to pursue their dream. Following his discharge, Boone moved to Aroda, Virginia, to start Three Springs Farm.

Growing up in a neighborhood, Boone had little experience outside visiting family farms in West Virginia. Boone also used Farmer Veteran Coalition for assistance, using webinars and training opportunities to learn. He also received a fellowship in 2019. He used a grant to buy a three-door glass freezer for his farm store, which he said was a “game changer” because he can sell direct to consumers.
