About Arcadia's 

Veteran Farmer Program

The United States needs 700,000 farmers over the next 20 years to replace the farmers aging out of the profession. Since 2015, Arcadia has trained the next wave of American farmers: US military veterans, active-duty service members, and military family members. More than 125 have completed training. More than half are already farming, and two-thirds of our graduates are engaged in agriculture. In 2018 we launched the Arcadia Veteran Farm Incubator to give our graduates a low-risk start to their new careers, with land, irrigation, a greenhouse, walk-in cooler, and market and technical support. Last fall we planted a fruit orchard on Arcadia Farm, the campus for our veteran trainees, and in 2021 we added beekeeping to our Fellows professional experience. In the pandemic, Arcadia veteran have been growing food for free distribution in their communities, and in 2020 helped to stand up the ops center for the Mid-Atlantic Food Resilience and Access Coalition. With 4P Foods, Arcadia co-founded MAFRAC to knit the connections and funding that keeps our community fed and farmers farming. Thank you for your support; this picnic raises funds for the Arcadia Veteran Farmer Program.
