OUR FULL-YEAR IMMERSION PROGRAM
Are you a Veteran that is passionate about farming?
Since the start of our nonprofit in 2014, we've hosted four Immersion Program trainees. Three of the four secured farm employment on local New York State Farms at the conclusion of their apprenticeship.
The Immersion Program is designed for the veteran who is serious about farming, whether seeking agriculture secure employment or making the ambitious move to owning their own farm operation.
Heroic Food partners with Hudson Valley farmers who seek apprentices. After passing a screening examination, Heroic Food will move forward with placing that veteran on the appropriate local farm. Farmers have challenges hiring labor. To ensure our veterans are set up for success, our program helps compensate our veteran apprentice where the farmer may fall short. Veterans have sacrificed their personal ambitions once already; it is our priority to ensure they have competitive wages during their training.
