Kentucky AgrAbility is pleased to celebrate over eighteen years of service to rural Kentuckians with disabilities. Since 1993, the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service has received funding from the US Department of Agriculture to provide education and technical assistance to agriculture operators and farm families who face the challenges of a disability. Farm families may feel that an injury or disability may make it too difficult to continue farming activities. But with our help, they can! Kentucky AgrAbility assists rural and farm families in overcoming limitations.
Kentucky AgrAbility is part of the National AgrAbility Project and exists as a partnership between the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service, Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital, Kentucky State University and the Kentucky Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. Please explore our pages to learn more about what we do.
Our Farm Equipment Modification Instruction Module received 2nd place honors from NISH. Carla Sanders, a practicum student with Kentucky AgrAbility, accepted the award at the NISH conference in New Orleans in May, 2005.
