AgrAbility Program

Site Location:

For Farmers & Farm Workers

Vermont AgrAbility supports farmers and farm workers with disabilities who are engaged in production agriculture and want to continue farming. The program connects farmers with newly acquired disabilities with others who have successfully accommodated their disability. On-site home and agricultural work site assessments are done and then ways to safely continue farming are recommended.

Farmers eligible for Vermont AgrAbility services may have any type of acquired or traumatic disability -- physical, cognitive, or sensory. The AgrAbility program provides training and education about farming with a disability for rehabilitation and health care practitioners, agriculture professionals, emergency response organizations, and other community agencies.
