Farmer Program 2023 Fall

Healthy Choices + Healthy Food = Healthy Life

Exploring the Farm Program



This program is designed to develop a healthy lifestyle by teaching to Farmers how to make healthy food choices for a long-term lifestyle. The curriculum is designed to take Farmers through the process of planting, growing, harvesting, and preparing a variety of sustainable, wholesome, nutritious food options.


Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities ages 14+. They are referred to as Farmers.

Days & Dates:

  • Two independent sessions running either Wednesday or Friday.
  • Sessions are 8-weeks in length beginning Wednesday, August 23rd and ending Friday, October 13th.
  • To maintain the integrity of the program, a Farmer can only attend the day they are enrolled in. Farmers can request to be enrolled in multiple days, depending on availability.
  • Missed days cannot be made up.


  • The day will promptly start at 9am and go until 11:30 am.
  • Parents/guardians are asked to escort their Farmer to the barn and encouraged to volunteer or relax on the property. The Farm is a wonderful place to be in the Fall with the harvest and preparation for winter.
