Texas AgrAbility Project supports Texas to assist farmers/ranchers to remain in production agriculture impacting the state and nation's aging farmer/rancher situation and our need to feed the nation’s people.
Additionally, we are training military veterans with and without disabilities and other new and beginning farmer/ranchers to engage in production agriculture, which positively impacts the need for more farmers/ranchers, as well as rural unemployment for this area and population.

The project’s overall goals are to enhance the connected competencies of Texas AgrAbility clients and service agencies to accommodate disabilities and avoid secondary injuries for persons with disabilities engaging in production agriculture, as well as increase the capacity of service agencies to serve this population.
