Watch the Full Episode

Internationally-acclaimed chef and food ambassador Lidia Bastianich again pays homage to the men and women of our military and all they’ve sacrificed for this country. In Homegrown Heroes, Lidia looks at veterans who return home and find farming to be a path back to civilian life.

Seven poignant veterans’ stories take Lidia from the heart of Appalachia in Loom, West Virginia to Richmond, Kentucky and Anaheim, California, and prove that farming, beekeeping, and raising livestock can help people reconnect in a meaningful way to the community.
