Veterans

Woerth It Hollow provides a place for Veterans to come to learn how to be involved in farming and/or the equine business. Not only do we have an assortment of animals to work with, but we also have extensive conservation farming opportunities as well as sustainable vegetable farming areas we would love to expand. Veteran Farming represents an opportunity for growth as farmers over the age of 65 outnumber those under 35, over 6 to one across the farming field.

In addition, we allow Veterans to gain equine knowledge by rescuing their own horse or continue with the equine field in some capacity.

Our goal is to provide a place where all Veterans can find meaning and purpose with the equine and farming industries.

We open our doors to visitors and participants on every Wednesday Night at 5:30 p.m., offering structured and unstructured opportunities for barn work, horse grooming and exercise, riding exposure and general rehab and medical care training. In addition, we will customize programs as needed, and try to either accommodate all needs or find a facility that can handle anything we can’t.

As Executive Director of Woerth It Hollow and a disabled veteran herself, Sara has created this magical place in order to continue her legacy of selfless service and help her fellow brothers and sisters in arms be a part of this mission.
