California Armed Forces Veterans Become Beginning Farmers addthis
California Veteran Farmers
Colin and Karen Archipley operate a small organic farm near San Diego. The farm called “Archi’s Acres” helps U.S. Armed Forces veterans get a new start in life and in farming. Colin served in the U.S. Marines and found on his return home that he, like many veterans, needed a transition back to civilian life that provided a living and benefitted society in some way. Today, the farm provides classroom and hands-on experience in raising crops through hydroponic means as well as traditional crop cultivation.
