Comfort Farms is a place in Milledgeville where veterans can work the land.

It's meant to help them transition back into civilian life.

Jon Jackson started up Comfort Farms.

"We have lambs, we have chickens, we have pigs -- which we're really known for," he said.

The pigs do draw attention, but the mission of Comfort Farms is to provide a safe space for veterans suffering from combat wounds,the ones you can see and the ones you can't.

C. Sabathne served in Iraq.

"I was in the Army in the 82nd Airborne division," he said.

Sabathne also suffered a traumatic brain injury as a child.

"Nailed by a station wagon and flatlined, and they got me started again," he recalled. "That was exacerbated by some hard landings in the Army jumping out of planes."

C. says treatment from the Veterans Administration has gotten better these days, but things like taking care of animals give vets an investment in their own care.

"If we're just waiting around to fix us, even if it's necessary, it's not empowering," Sabathne reasoned. "Farms like this are people finding their own way."

J Jackson was an Army Ranger.

"I would say we've seen 2,000 vets and their families in 2 years, and this is our third year," Jackson said.

Next weekend, they will have a festival open to the public for everyone to come in and see how things operate on a working farm.

"It's important to us for the boucherie because vets, combat vets, we would go and fight during the spring, and they would call that the 'Arab spring,' so we lost a lot of buddies along the way," he explained.

Veterans making it home but feeling lost can work the land, hoping to find a renewed spirit in a simpler way of life.

Next weekend's festival will bring butchers and chefs together on the farm.

It's a $150 for two people over two days. That will get you entry into all of the festivals and the meals.
