KY AgrAbility Logo with State

Since 1992, Kentucky AgrAbility has been helping Farmers, Ranchers, and their family members remain across the Commonwealth continue their work in agriculture when facing limitations due to aging, disease, injury, illness, or other disability. The Kentucky AgrAbility Project is part of a national program funded by the National Institute of food and Agriculture that promotes independence for people in agriculture who want to continue to farm after experiencing a disabling condition. The University of Kentucky has partnered with Easter Seals Cardinal Hill to implement the program’s goals by providing education, resources, and technical assistance to those individuals and their families so they may continue to be successful in agriculture.

Farm families may feel that an injury or disability may make it too difficult to continue farming activities. But with our help, they can! Kentucky AgrAbility assists rural and farm families in overcoming limitations.

Kentucky AgrAbility is part of the National AgrAbility Project and exists as a partnership between the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service, Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital, Kentucky State University and the Kentucky Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. Please explore our pages to learn more about what we do.
