4B TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2013 PNJ.COM PENSACOLA NEWS JOURNAL NEWS MILITARY Promotion of veteran-raised agricultural goods goes national Associated Press LOUISVILLE, Ky. A Kentucky-based promotional campaign featuring a special logo for farm goods produced by military veterans is spreading nationally, with the goal of making the brand a household name and boosting in come for ex-service members looking to make a living off the land. James Comer, Kentucky's agriculture commissioner, said Monday the California-based Farmer Veteran Coalition has volunteered to run the Homegrown by Heroes program across the country. The branding program got its start last January in Kentucky. Comer said the state's agriculture department will share its logo for the program showing a saluting service member with the American flag in the background for the national initiative. The program is seen as an incentive for consumers to buy veteran-produced farm products and for retailers to stock them. Comer predicted consumers will be willing to "pay a premium" for the products. "And that's the way we're going to help these military veterans, by helping them add as much value to what they produce as possible," he said at a Veterans Day event in downtown Louisville. To back the initiative, the Farm Credit System announced a $250,000 commitment to help extend the program's reach. The contribution was the result of support from Agribank of St. Paul, Minn.; AgFirst of Columbia, S.C.; CoBank of Denver and Farm Credit Bank of Texas in Austin. The Farmer Veteran Coalition, based in Davis, Calif., helps veterans start careers in agriculture. TO PLACE A DEATH NOTICE. CALL 43S-8S1 6.
