2024 Summer Farmer Program

Farmer Program 2024 Summer

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:

  • Three independent sessions running either Monday, Wednesday, or Friday.
  • Sessions are 8-weeks in length beginning Monday, June 10th and ending Friday, August 2nd.
  • To maintain the integrity of the program, a Farmer can only attend the day in which they are enrolled. 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 11:00 am.
  • Parents/guardians are asked to escort their Farmer to the barn and encouraged to volunteer for non-program activities or relax on the property.  There is plenty to do on the Farm and we encourage you to volunteer.
