“All employees have their strengths and weaknesses. Those with disabilities are no different although some of their abilities may be more pronounced which can be a tremendous asset in the diverse field of agriculture. People with disabilities bring different talents, backgrounds and perspectives which can lead to increased productivity. Those with disabilities are often the most loyal and long-term employees, bringing a sense of pride and commitment to the work so many farmers are looking for. There are several organizations with the skills and resources to assist these individuals work safely and productively in agriculture.”
