Enter the 2017 Fighter to Farmer Contest

To honor and thank farmer veterans, Successful Farming magazine and Grasshopper Mowers are proud to bring back the Fighter to Farmer contest for 2017.

The contest will look at each farmer veteran’s military service, farming operation, and involvement in the community. One winner selected on these attributes will receive $6,000 toward the purchase of a new Grasshopper mower and $4,000 cash. The second winner will be a veteran who has a service-connected disability. In addition to $6,000 toward the purchase of a Grasshopper mower and a $4,000 check, this farmer veteran will also receive a consultation from AgrAbility and $5,000 to purchase adaptive equipment or other services to enhance his or her quality of life. 

Nominate a farmer veteran by filling out the form below. If you have questions about the contest, please email Jessie Scott.
