Homegrown By Heroes
We are Homegrown by Heroes certified, the official farmer veteran brand of America. This label serves to inform consumers that U.S. military veterans proudly produce the agricultural products you are purchasing. As a member of the Farmer Veteran Coalition we are proud to participate in the cultivation of viable employment and meaning through fellowship and stewardship of the soil ~ the link that connects us all.
The veteran to farmer movement has become a recognized transition for service members seeking meaningful and therapeutic careers, a way to find peace and purpose. The Farm Bill now recognizes veterans as a distinct class of beginning farmers amongst the USDA.
Our communities love food, and they love veterans, but often do not know how to show their support. By purchasing products with this certification you can be assured that your dollars are supporting a local veteran and their family.
This certification is the first we sought after, because we at Brownings feel that it is important that our customers know that before serving you, we were serving our country.
