About Us

The Farm in the Dell is an alternative to town-based group homes. The Farm provides a residential and vocational opportunity in a rural, farm-like setting for adults with developmental disabilities. It emphasizes work related to agriculture and provides important opportunities for community integration. Residents can choose to work at the Farm or in town. Likewise, those who live in town can choose to work at the Farm. The relaxed calming atmosphere is a real asset to all involved-residents, workers and staff alike.

The goal at Farm in the Dell is to provide developmentally disabled adults an opportunity to live and work in a rural setting. The Farm maintains a Christian lifestyle within a family atmosphere, provides comprehensive residential services, employment, care provider planning and affordable housing options. Services are unique and customized to meet individual needs, hopes and dreams.
