Solutions & Resources
Individuals with a disability who work in an agricultural setting face challenges that can impact their productivity, mental and physical health, and quality of life. The Maine AgrAbility Project provides general resources that address farming with a disability.
Use the navigation links (at left) to find solutions, some easy and budget friendly, others more complicated and costly, to common challenges faced by agricultural workers with disabling conditions.
Additionally, Maine AgrAbility provides agricultural worksite assessments for agricultural production workers. If you are curious about what to expect from an AgrAbility assessment, please review Preparing for Agricultural Worksite Assessments, or feel free to contact us at 207.944.1533 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
