Founded in 2009 and offering training programs, matching services, positions and land for aspiring farmers, reliable leaders for existing farm and food operations, Farmer Veteran Coalition was founded in 2009. In mid-August 2014, we had the honor and pleasure to speak with Mr. Michael O’Gorman, Executive Director of FARMER VETERAN COALITION. During this initial conversation I asked about challenges the organization faced in the early year’s and he told me simply, it was in finding any veterans.

FVC Michael O’Gorman: “I had this idea, and everyone said, “Oh what a wonderful idea.” And I said, “Yeah, but I don’t know any veterans that are interested in farming. Do you?” I remember one day hearing, “Oh such, and such a farmer said somebody came to do some custom harvest at their farm, and he was a veteran of the Iraq War.” I said, “Gosh, help me find them, help me find them.”
