FarmAble's mission is to create and provide education, employment, and social events for our agricultural community of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
What We Do: Our agricultural focus is on orchard, produce, and animal care.
Animal Care: Our 23-acre farm includes a large stable and grazing fields for the FarmAble animals. Our community engages with the animals in many different ways, depending on their abilities and interests, including: feeding, grooming, moving between fields and/or stable, cleaning.
Orchard and Produce: Our orchard is located near the stream confluence and the produce is grown near the community home. In order to enhance accessibility, our produce is grown in raised beds.
Commitment to Environment: FarmAble practices and teaches sustainable agricultural practices.
Commitment to our Community: FarmAble is welcoming of all. Access and inclusion of all abilities is the driving vision for FarmAble.
Bubba is the original FarmAble animal. He's still getting used to the idea of sharing his space with pasture animals and livestock guard dogs.
Toad is on his way to being as gigantic as his 140-pound father, Bear, of Wings and a Prayer Alpacas. It's quite an understatement to say that people immediately are smitten with friendly and laid-back Toad. He provides joy and comfort to all of the people who participate in FarmAble.
Sweet, cerebral Peach. Always standing sentry (when she's not socializing with everyone), she ensures that all of her people and animals are safe and sound.
Beautiful, sweet, shy Dressy. Her fleece just glistens! Our next project in the FarmAble mission is to develop a fleece production and spinning program with the participants of FarmAble. Thank you to Wings and a Prayer Alpacas for allowing us to adopt Dressy.
Oh Catalina! How we adore thee. She is only the most gentle and friendly alpaca we have ever met. She is such an amazing addition to the FarmAble community.
Thank you to Ann at Aragon Alpacas for allowing us to adopt and share Catalina with our community.
Meet Madeline, our grand dame of the herd. We love how she stands out with her beautiful white coat, which we look forward to working with in our FarmAble fleece spinning program.
Jasmine has lived with Madeline for 10 years. Madeline's fawn fleece will make beautiful yarn.
