AUV wants to help hire post 9/11 unemployed veterans. AUV will pay veterans for their skills, time and experience.

AUV will hire unemployed veterans to work a rural upstate New York farmstead while they hone transferrable skills and learn new skills. AUV needs help to make this plan a reality.

The farmstead is a community: a workplace of opportunity, jobs, training, change, new directions, choices, and building experience. The farmstead is a working farm raising naturally grown produce, flowers, herbs, horses and grass fed chickens. It is a hospitality center hosting overnight guests in comfortable, relaxed simplicity, serving farm-fresh nutritious breakfasts in a warm and welcoming setting. The farmstead is shelter for retired and abandoned service and racehorses and a few pups, too.

AUV needs help to buy an existing farmstead to create The Roots & Sprouts Farmstead happen.


  •     America’s 9% unemployment rate for post 9/11 veterans.
  •     With dedication and sacrifice, these brave men and women in all ranks of military service, served the US.

AUV needs the communities help to buy the established bed and breakfast and working farm with barns, ponds, and field and produce crop acreage, outdoor arenas, meadows, forests and trails.

The farmstead is located off a quiet country road, near several lively and colorful historic villages with many educational, recreational, and social opportunities. It is in the Upper Susquehanna Valley along the low Allegany spurs with beautiful vistas of the Leatherstocking region. AUV needs help to take this plan to reality.


  •     All good citizens who want to sleep better at night knowing AUV provide's support and encouragement, training and paychecks for our Patriots
  •     To create its workplace that pays locally competitive wages to the returned Patriots
  •     To transform the lives of America’s patriots to meaningful civilian life.

When supporting AUV's funds to build the Farmstead Purchase every dollar makes a difference, changes lives and serves our Country.
