"The experience I had within the program was one of the best of my life. I was able to stretch myself beyond anything I could ever imagine. The opportunity to work on an amazing farm, be accepted, and be supported throughout the entire process made it so much easier and rewarding. I was able to make connections that will last a lifetime. I received more knowledge than I can even quantify. This was a life changing experience. Without Heroic Food I would not be where I am today. The resources, feedback, and information will help me navigate my career in agriculture for the rest of my life."
Cameron Pedigo, 2018 Immersion Program graduate.
“Our experience with Heroic Food has been wonderful. They are giving veterans the tools and knowledge they need to be successful in agriculture and farming. Reconnecting with the land is both therapeutic and rewarding for us all. Soldiers are finding solace through farming and we are rebuilding our farming ranks to provide food security to the nation."
