Farm and Ranch Community

Farm and ranch communities offer programs and employment opportunities for individuals with special needs.

There are many reasons why farms and ranches are becoming popular options for special needs families, including:

  • The lifestyle is slower paced and more relaxing making it easier for individuals with special needs to adapt to their surroundings.
  • On a farm or ranch there a number of vocational activities and skills that individuals can learn.
  • A farm can offer a perfect opportunity to create a sustainable business for individuals with special needs by selling their produce in the local markets.
