The mission of VTF is to provide American veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts with pride, education and fulfillment through a permanent source of sustainable income, community and contribution: The family farm. A Central Farm, operated by Circle Fresh Farms, Inc., provides a physical location for training in business planning, hydroponic organic growing methods, and greenhouse maintenance and construction. Veterans will be taught how to build environmentally controlled greenhouses of uniform size and design that utilize methods of high-tech, controlled environment crop culture. The greenhouses will protect crops from rain, snow, heat, cold, wind and insects thus named Controlled Environment Agriculture.
