In a natural and peaceful farm environment, we bring together family members, professionals, volunteers, caregivers and communities to help and support those with autism and other special needs lead independent, happy and fulfilling lives. Through our job skills, life skills, social skills and community outreach programs and services, our goals are to provide opportunities for discovery, learning, understanding and fulfillment.

We hope you can join our new fun Saturday Program launching in July 2012. If you are 16 and over with mild to moderate disabilities and you would like to make new friends, while at the same time experience fun activities and learn new skills, Farming Independence’s ranch is the ideal place to spend your Saturdays.

Thats not all, bring your family to our end of the Summer Wild Wild West BBQ and Dance Party. Sign up quickly. All of us at Farming Independence, including our farm animals are looking forward to welcoming you. 

And there’s more! This next one is going to be a very informative workshop about Estate Planning that all families should know about. We will be covering many important topics through our workshops in the future so keep checking back. Seating is very limited.
