Work Place For Veterans

3 Aug

Update.July 29. 2012. CNY.

Advantage US Vets has identified a vibrant and peaceful compound north of Utica, New York to locate its farmstead.  The next step is

 a tour of the almost eight acre property to determine its fit to our

mission, goals and programs.  The property is presently a bed and breakfast serving Mohawk Valley travelers.  The current owner

has operated the property as a B&B for over ten ears and is retiring to pursue new activities and to enjoy her children and grandchildren.

This Oneida County parcel, with two ponds a barn, and fenced greens is in an Agricultural District. The Town Planning Board has informally “indicated” its willingness to approve the property’s continued use as a  b&b.

 Our New York State incorporation process is underway; and, the IRS Tax Exemption application is in the works.

A WorkPlace for Our Veterans 

Advantage US Vets hires unemployed veterans returned home from overseas duty. Their workplace is an Upstate Central New York farmstead where they learn job producing skills and skill producing jobs. They gain knowledge, experience and connections. They farm organically nurtured vegetables, berries, flowers, herbs, chickens

and honeybees and host travelers (bed and breakfast format) in a comfortable  guesthouse. They shelter retired horses and several abandoned dogs and cats.

 The farmstead is a beautiful, quiet, safe, rural community where veterans can live their daily lives moving into a “new normal” with new practices, activities, and relationships.

 Advantage US Vets recognizes, respects, and rewards our veterans for

their service to our Country and to the citizens of our democracy.

“They served us, it our turn to serve them.”  It starts with all of us giving our financial support so veterans have an opportunity to work.
