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.
This case study features how the national AgrAbility project helps disabled farmers in Iowa. This segment was produced by the USDA.
