Jeremy Huffman has agreed to conduct a webinar for VetBizCentral, Veteran Business Outreach Center (VBOC) of the Small Business Administration (SBA) to discuss the Agriculture Business. He will talk about Barriers to Entry, Regulations, Networking, Legal Formation and many more topics needed by the Veteran farmer.


A surprising number of military veterans find themselves doing the peaceful work of a produce grower. And that unlikely transition is no less surprising to the veterans themselves. One case study is Jeremy Huffman, a Marine combat veteran who served in Iraq from 2004-2005.
The highlights of Huffman’s military career include handling logistics for the battle of Fallujah and later for Iraqi elections, as well as the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.


Today, he grows produce in eastern Michigan’s Swartz Creek, a 10-acre farm with one greenhouse and four high tunnels.
Huffman and his wife, Valerie, purchased the farm in 2015, after becoming interested in sustainable agriculture. Taking on a farm operation – they’ve called it Huffman’s Homestead.


“I know that I was interested in it and that I was enjoying it, but what I’m witnessing was surprising to me,” he said. “I see an explosion of veterans coming into agriculture. Across the board, I’m seeing more and more veterans who are trying to get this figured out.”

Military veterans who find a second calling in agriculture still need to learn the ropes. As director of the Michigan Food and Farming Systems Veterans in Ag Network, Huffman helps veterans navigate the USDA, FSA, NRCS and other agencies, to be able to sell their food to their communities. – Stephen Kloosterman, Fruit Growers News, Associate Editor
