Empower Farms is a farm where people of all abilities can participate in growing high quality produce. The fruits of their labor are delivered fresh locally through a CSA program. Here, people with disabilities undertake various agricultural activities as employees or as field trip attendants visiting the farm. Getting to help grow the food no matter one’s abilities is a new milestone for the farm.
