Farmers We Serve

The Easter Seals Wisconsin FARM Program (Farm Assessment and Rehabilitation Methods) serves agricultural workers who work in different roles on a farm. These roles may include the primary owner and operator or an employee of the farm. We also work with people to identify areas of need if they are not now working on a farm, but are interested in becoming involved in a farming operation.

Farmers we serve have a medical diagnosis or limitation that limits their ability to complete their farm work. Such limitations include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Limb amputation or crush injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Joint replacement
  • Mental or cognitive impairment
  • Injuries caused by repetitive use
  • Stroke
  • Back injuries

The Wisconsin farmers we have served are involved or interested in becoming involved in an agricultural operation. We provide recommendations for disability-related equipment, and referral for funding for recommended equipment, as needed. We serve many different types of farms and by working on an individual basis, cater to the specific needs of each farmer.
