When farm families and workers become ill or injured, man hours that are crucial to the operation of the farm are lost. This is when Farm Again can help. We provide information and services that may make it possible to return to farming.
Farm Again is a free service and focuses on promoting independence for members of the agricultural community who have disabilities or chronic health conditions. The project is funded by grants, foundatons, donations and sponsorships.
The program in Georgia is managed by the University of Georgia's Cooperative Extension Service in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the Institute on Human Development and Disability in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences.
You or someone you know may benefit from:
Farm Again provides direct assistance to agricultural families with assistive technology, work site modifications, and independent living. We can also assist with starting a new farm operation (including growing organically).
Farm Again provides information through individual contacts, distribution of resources, agency referrals and public education.
Farm Again provides training opportunities on available resources and assistive technology for consumers and professionals. Contact us for more information about presenting to your organization or group.
