Clear Path for Veterans

Supporting the Journey Home

Clear Path for Veterans is pleased to be entering the strawberry season. Our U-pick strawberry fields are bursting with berries and we need pickers to help collect the harvest. Our strawberries begin in our fields and make their way to local restaurants and markets and support our Culinary programs. Come out under the summer sun and bring the family- there’s no better way to give back than to collect berries in support of our local Veteran community.


U-Pick begins June 8th and runs until July 15th. Monday through Friday 8:00 am- 6:00 pm and weekends from 8:00 am- 4:00 pm. $3 for a quart and $5 for pre-picked quarts.

Our Mission:

Recognizing the responsibility of communities to help those who serve, Clear Path for Veterans empowers service members, veterans, and their families through supportive programs and services in a safe, respectful environment.

We are a community based non profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2011 in rural upstate New York. Our mission revolves around connecting our Veterans to their communities through wellness, peer support, community outreach and education. We do this by accepting our role and responsibility in caring for those who’ve served. Founded on principles and values of traditional warrior culture, Clear Path’s model of reintegration mirrors traditions hundreds of years old.
