THE "WHY" BEHIND OUR WORK

Our Mission in Action

At Farm in the Dell, we strive to provide meaningful job opportunities where employees are given fair wages and a steady paycheck – helping to give them confidence and fulfillment.

Unfortunately, individuals with disabilities are often overlooked and marginalized by our current society – especially in the workforce. At Farm in the Dell, we offer a non-competitive setting where our Garden Engineers are not valued on their efficiency or productivity – but instead are reminded of their true dignity and identity as beloved children of God.

 

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 66% of individuals with “independent living
disabilities” between the ages of 18 and 64 living in Minnesota are unemployed.
