Maine AgrAbility gives farmers guidance about hiring workers with disabilities

Maine AgrAbility has a new resource for farmers hiring workers with disabilities. 

“Tips for Farmers Who Hire Individuals with Disabilities” provides guidance throughout the process, including identifying goals and expectations, understanding limitations, safety and health considerations, and developing adaptations for workers for successful outcomes. 

UMaine Extension bulletins may be ordered or downloaded from the publications catalog, and by contacting 207.581.3792, Maine AgrAbility is a nonprofit collaboration with University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Alpha One.
