VFNC is limited in its growth due to funding challenges. While a definitive need exists for agricultural programs for military in NC, gaining the funding needed to institute programs geared towards the needs of the military community has been difficult. Funding will allow VFNC to
expand on its mission, “Giving veterans a new mission and America a new farmer.”

This program is critically needed to fill a major void in NC, where agriculture and military are the top industries.
