ADG: Hydroponic farming option for veterans, senator told on tour

Written by Press Release

August 27, 2019

SPRINGDALE — U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., toured a farm operation Monday that is largely immune to the weather, to pests and to trade wars.

Vet Veggies provides fresh leafy green vegetables and herbs year-round to Northwest Arkansas restaurants and grocers by growing the plants indoors in climate-controlled conditions with artificial light.

Boozman, the son of a veteran, is a member of both the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee and the Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee.

The Vet Veggies farm was the first stop on a tour of businesses Boozman said could provide opportunities for veterans.
