Raising market crops and caring for the animals on our two chemical-free farm sites in Hatfield, totaling 18-acres, individuals with developmental disability, autism, or mental health challenges contribute in a meaningful way to the rich agricultural life of the Pioneer Valley.
We build on the experience and interests of each participant, helping them develop vocational skills they may apply to their work at the farm and elsewhere. Through regular workshops, training from job coaches, and hands-on experience gained from serving on work crews, program participants become experienced and knowledgeable in farm work and other careers in agriculture.
