Armed to Farm
The week-long Armed to Farm program presented by the National Center for Appropriate Technology helps military veterans examine farming as a viable career, reports The Prairie Star. Participants in last year's training say the program provided a wealth of information and helped them launch and/or refine farming enterprises. This year the Montana training will be held in October in the Mission Valley. The application period for this training has closed, but another training will be offered in 2018. During the week of classroom and on-farm instruction, participants are taught business planning, budgeting, recordkeeping, marketing, livestock production, vegetable production, and small-grain production by NCAT sustainable agriculture specialists, USDA staff, and experienced crop and livestock producers.
