Fields 4 Valor Farms
Fields 4 Valor (F4V) is a non-profit and innovative farm founded to combat the often unseen struggle of food insecurity among military and veteran families. We are dedicated to growing and donating healthy foods as an important part of easing the financing burden for Washington, DC area veterans and military families who are transitioning to civilian life.
It is our hope that the generous donors that wish to involve themselves with Field 4 Valor Farms feel as passionately about supporting the community of those who live a life of service as we do. No family who already sacrificed so much to this country should have to struggle with putting food on the table or having to choose between food and paying utility bills or buying their kids school supplies.
All Veterans and their families face large hurdles entering the civilian space. Whether transitioning from service, recovering from injury or disability continuing life after the loss of a loved one, or dealing with the remnants of conflict. Through the restorative power of food and agriculture, F4V provides a positive and sustaining impact on the lives of veterans and military families, offering a fresh start toward achieving a greater well-being and renewed purpose.
Our innovative, seven-acre farm in Brandywine, Maryland grows fresh produce and makes weekly deliveries of fruits, vegetables, nuts, eggs, honey and other seasonal items to veterans and their families in need in the Washington, DC metropolitan area -- all at no cost.
In addition to food donations, F4V has life-altering programs for veterans and their families including culinary classes and beekeeping training, along with employment, housing, and volunteer opportunities on the farm.
F4V is veteran-founded, veteran-focused, and veteran-operated. Farmer and former Counterintelligence Agent, Pete Scott, launched F4V in 2016 and runs the farm alongside fellow veterans and military family members, using sustainable farming practices in an environment that is healing and enriching.
