Partnerships pave the way for agriculture
In agriculture, we believe that the only way to succeed is together. The North Carolina Agromedicine Institute and The Veteran's Farm of NC, Inc. partnered to bring safety, security, and success to your farm with workshops designed specifically for you! We have prepared quite a few resources and partners together to help bring the best information directly to you to grow your operation. Check out our events page for locations and dates we will be in your area!
The North Carolina Agromedicine Institute, a University of North Carolina inter-institutional institute whose partners are East Carolina University, North Carolina State University, and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. In addition to our university partners, the Institute relies heavily on its collaborative partnerships with the agricultural community, other universities, businesses, health care organizations, governmental agencies, and non-governmental organizations who are dedicated to identifying and addressing the health and safety risks of farmers, foresters, fishermen, their families and communities in North Carolina.
Our goal is to reduce injury and illness by conducting research that leads to practical solutions and developing effective educational approaches that can be of benefit daily to the end user. Ultimately we want farming, logging and fishing workplaces to be safe and healthy for all.
The Veteran's Farm of NC, Inc. began as place for veterans to simply get together and work with each other on a farm. Today, VFNC is working with over 200 veterans in the state to help build farms, opportunities, and offering education and infrastructure to farmer veterans. VFNC works closely with other organizations in the state to ensure that veterans have all of the resources they may need to cultivate a brighter future and advance our cause by bringing more veterans into agriculture where we find therapeutic benefits in being a steward of our lands, our neighbors, and our world. We give veterans a new mission, and America new farmers.
