On the Job Training

NYS’s first on-the-job training program for military veterans to become farmers.

On October 10, 2016 the New York Division of Veteran’s Affairs approved Kreher’s Poultry Farm in Clarence, New York, as the state’s first on-the-job training program for military veterans to use GI Bill Benefits to learn the trade of farming.
