Our Mission

Our mission is to provide fresh local produce to the community, all grown by adults with Special Needs and Autism. Supported employment is a huge gap in the continuum of care for adults with disabilities, but purposeful employment is just as important. Unemployment for the Autism population is 80-90%, and the jobs available are often meaningless and isolated. We re-designed supported employment, creating a model completely centered around the amazing individuals who work at our farms. We made farming adaptable and fun, with a product that our adults are proud of.

Our Story once “the bus stopped coming”

We started in our neighbors backyard growing produce for community and family. From seed to harvest my brother Nic was able to see the purpose of farming. He grew the produce, and handed it right to the benefactors of his work. Not only was it fresh, local, and delicious…but his work has turned into a year-round business providing food for local colleges, restaurants, and individuals in the community.
