"The USDA-sponsored program called AgrAbility Program serves farm families touched by disability. A disabling injury, illness, or lifelong disability can challenge anyone's hope, especially when the individual has been engaged in the physically demanding occupation of agricultural production. AgrAbility's mission is to enhance and protect quality of life and preserve livelihoods, and support and promote growth and independence."
If you or someone you know has arthritis or any other injury, illness or disability that impacts the ability to engage in agricultural production, contact someone from the Missouri AgrAbility Project to look at options for improving quality of life! You can also read more information about the National AgrAbility Project at their website here and information about the Missouri AgrAbility Project here.
