"They may have a physical limitation, they may have aged into a disability, they may have an incident that has resulted in a long-term health condition. But it doesn’t mean they want to give up farming. So we’re helping them get the services and support (to keep farming) and find those resources,” said Kendra Martin, outreach coordinator for AgrAbility PA. Thanks to Lancaster Farming for this story about farming with a disability and the hope that remains inside a farmer to persevere. 👩‍🌾👨‍🌾
