At Farm in the Dell of the Red River Valley, we provide employment for individuals with disabilities in our beautiful farm and garden setting. We teach these employees new life skills while providing them with employment opportunities that give them a sense of accomplishment and belonging. At Farm in the Dell of the Red River Valley, our mission is “transforming disabilities into abilities” through purposeful work and life experiences in a community farm setting. We work closely with local families and agencies to connect individuals with purposeful work that fills their spirits, sharpens their minds, and cultivates joy. Our employees find space at the farm to discover their own passions and abilities.At the farm, we don’t just grow produce. At our core, we serve people with developmental disabilities – adults, young and old, who live with Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Down’s Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, etc., who were born with chronic conditions and were dealt a hand in life that no amount of money, hours in the field, or boxfuls of tomatoes will ever erase. However, what we can provide for the individuals that we serve is LOVE – and how we share the love is special. It’s through a paycheck. It’s through prayer. It’s through conversations between rows of peas in the field on a sunny day. It’s through friendship. It’s through making sure that they feel seen, heard, valued, and respected.Farm in the Dell of the Red River Valley was founded in 2012, by a group of parents of children with disabilities that were concerned for the future of their children. These parents wanted their children to continue to thrive, learn, and be as independent as possible after they aged out of the school systems. After learning about Farm in the Dell International, these parents advocated bringing a Farm in the Dell to the Fargo/Moorhead Area. Since that time, due to the incredible support of our community, our very dedicated volunteers, and the tireless efforts of board members, our farm has grown quickly and continues to develop. We currently have a 30-acre farm located 5 miles north of Moorhead. On this property, we have a greenhouse, a strawberry patch, a large pole barn, and a 6-acre garden.
