The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) exists to support the state's agricultural community and promote consumer and environmental protection.More than 600,000 veterans live in Washington State. Many are considering agriculture as a career. WSDA supports this trend, because:
- Agriculture is proving to be a good fit for those with the experience and skills gained in military service.
- The average age of our state's farmers is almost 59. To maintain our ag industry, we need a new generation ready to step in.
