About Us

A Farm Less Ordinary (AFLO) is a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to provide employment, training and a welcoming community to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities (ID/DD). We cultivate a sense of self-worth and independence for our “Growers” through a basic job skill training program, and through employment itself.

Our focus is to promote habits, social skills, and behaviors that can be used in any work setting. Our Growers are paid for their work starting at or above minimum wage; wages increase as those goals are met while they farm, produce “value added” products, and work at the Farmers’ Market. In the process, our Growers learn not only hands-on skills in growing and preparing food, but also develop their executive functioning skills, problem-solving abilities, and self-advocacy tools, while gaining confidence as productive members of their community.

At AFLO, we recognize that our vegetables may not always be perfect looking, nor are we always able to operate at optimal efficiency. We try our best, operate with a sense of humor, and always seek to improve ourselves, in the office and in the field.
