The Arkansas Grown Homegrown by Heroes branding program enables farmer veterans to market their local agricultural products by labeling them as veteran produced.
To participate in this free national program, farmers must have veteran, active duty, National Guard or Reserve member of the United States Armed Forces status. In order to apply for Homegrown by Heroes certification, you must first belong to the Farmer Veteran Coalition and be certified through the national Homegrown By Heroes program.
Funding for the Homegrown By Heroes Scholarship for the Center for Arkansas Farm and Food Farm School is provided by Farm Credit Associations of Arkansas. With more than $3.7 in assets, the Farm Credit Associations of Arkansas support Arkansas agriculture and the rural lifestyle.
