Mandy's Farm

April 7, 2022

Mandy’s Farm is a nonprofit organization that assists individuals with developmental disabilities in achieving their goals for living, learning, and working in the community.

 

Programs: 

Adaptive Horsemanship Program: Uniquely designed to build skills in horsemanship and develop a trusting relationship between horse and rider, adaptive riding classes are designed to provide riders of all experience levels with the opportunity to learn principles of horse handling, animal care, and Western and/or English riding techniques.

AgrAbility Apprenticeship Program: Mandy’s Farm offers programming designed specifically for people with disabilities who wish to access education and vocational support designed to cultivate a career in farming. AgrAbility apprentices complete a year-long program designed to prepare them to work on an existing farm or start a micro-business of their own. Apprentices obtain hands-on and classroom-based training in growing vegetables, cultivating fruit, caring for small livestock, and much more. Following the completion of their apprenticeship, disabled farmers have the opportunity to incubate their own farming business within Mandy’s Farm.
