We’ve found a community where veterans are welcome. A safe, serene place with acreage to support the hay, soybean, and organic vegetable crops, flowers and herbs, horses and ponies, Art practice and physical training. With nearby farmers’ markets.

Of course, there’s the bread and breakfast enterprise, too. And to tie the programs together, the management and current technology operations.

The current property owner is a retired NYC businessman, accomplished horse breeder and trainer, a gracious, likeable and generous human. And the realtor is a Viet Nam Marine. Semper Fi.

Please keep AUV in your thoughts and prayers as we move forward to fill our mission to hire returning unemployed veterans. With your financial support and encouragement, AUV can bring its vision to reality.

Recognition, Respect, and Responsibility & Reward


Reward. To bestow an honor. To care about the work or well being of another person To look back on a job well done.

As our active duty military transition from their combat zones to their homes states, AUV recognizes and respects their many contributions-offered unasked – to our freedom.

For many, this transition is difficult, painful, and without rewards for their service: a job, family and community connectivity, a new consciousness with new energy and commitments.

AUV’s proposed farmstead, a workplace for recently discharged veterans, offers the rewards of opportunity: change and renewal, and training and assistance. Vets earn paychecks for their hard work while seizing new opportunities with new rewards.

We recognize their individual needs for work, training, assistance and acceptance. We recognize
that simple, ordinary work in clean air is
life giving, where equilibrium, unity, and wholeness are restored.
