More Than a Farm
The teaching farm will include over 2000 acres of crop land, livestock animals, orchards, horticulture, and apiaries. The teaching farm will be specially designed to help those with disabilities work with equipment and animals.The farm will train 100 veterans and service members through an entire farm cycle. It is a model for all land grant universities.
The farm will also include a healing center on site or adjacent to it focusing on service members and veterans in need of special treatment and therapy. Because those participating in the program will be housed on the farm, having this facility close by will be necessary.
Our VISION is to provide occupational agricultural training and engagement to a significant number of veterans, servicemembers, and family members on a training farm in Kansas. In time a SAVE Farm will exist on all land grant universities.
