This project helps people with disabilities remain active in agriculture. The AbrAbility Project provides education and assistance to promote independence in agricultural production and rural living.

West Virginia AgrAbility 
This organization works to help familes who have been in an accident or been diagnosed with a chronic health condition. West Virginia AgrAbility makes direct on-the-farm visits to help develop solutions to meet specific needs, recommends safe affordable modifications to your home, land, vehicles, and farming equipment, puts you in contact with other West Virginia farm families who have had similar experiences so you can exchange ideas, helps you find funding support for the assistive technology and farm equipment modifications you may need, and provide education on farm safety and injury prevention.

Collaborative for the 21st Century Appalachia
This group provides ease of access for individuals and restaurants interested in local farm and artisan products. Buying West Virginia Fresh is a way to protect the environment and promote prosperous communities throughout the Mountain State.
