ATF combines engaging classroom sessions with farm tours and hands-on activities. Participants learn about business planning, budgeting, recordkeeping, marketing, livestock production, fruit and vegetable production, and more. Participants gain a strong foundation in the basic principles of operating a sustainable farming enterprise. In addition, ATF attendees join a nationwide network of supportive farmer-veterans and agricultural advisors.

Veterans can visit ncat.org/atf_CA to complete an application by March 2, 2018. The program is available to military veterans in California, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Washington who are interested in starting a farm or who have recently begun farming (less than 10 years). Spouses and farming partners are also invited to apply. NCAT will notify selected participants by March 12th, 2018.
