Hope for Heroes: The Farmer Veteran Coalition

Season 12 Episode 1211 | 26m 46s

This is the inspiring story of a growing legion of farmers who are putting down roots and feeding their country… after defending it in uniform. These second-career farmers routinely find renewed purpose in continuing to serve their communities even after their military duty ends. But it also takes a tireless corps of passionate individuals to support these dedicated veterans.
