Bailey joined the Small Farms Program in 2022 as a veterans project associate with Farm Ops. She has a fond appreciation for the sacrifices that our veterans, active-duty military members, and their families make for our country as many close to her have served. Her work supports veterans who wish to explore or further their agricultural ventures with educational resources, training, and opportunities to network with other farmer veterans. Her goal is that veterans ultimately find a renewed sense of purpose through agriculture in their communities.
