ACTS Freedom Farms of America efforts are placed on Veterans mentoring Veterans to maximize crop production in any master-planned agricultural environment. The unique personal military experience of the Veteran mentors is a crucial component of the mentor's role. All ACTS Freedom Farms of America mentors agree to be transparent with their own journey and the personal adjustments they made transitioning from active military duty to successful Veterans as Agricultural Specialists. This transparency and empathy are imperative to the success of the program because it ensures Veteran Agricultural Specialists and agri-business owners feel comfortable and accepted and allows for free discussion of failures as well as successes. And the Veteran mentor's shared military background allows for a level of authenticity and trust that instantly connects with Veterans in the agricultural environment.
