Cape Abilities Farm
GUESS WHAT’S GROWING DOWN ON THE FARM? WE ARE!
We are very excited here at Cape Abilities to share the wonderful news that our farm on Route 6A is GROWING! We will construct a new, year-round facility that will house retail/office space, handicap-accessible rest rooms, and act as a community agricultural center. This expansion will better serve our participants and workers, meet the demands of our growing customer base and allow greater involvement in the community by providing expanded volunteer and educational opportunities.
It is only through the generosity of the following organizations that our “Cape Abilities Farm-Changing Lives…Growing Futures” project will now become a reality. On behalf of the 350 individuals that Cape Abilities serves, a heartfelt THANK YOU.
- Arbella Insurance Group Charitable Foundation
- Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Charitable Foundation
- The Bank of America Charitable Foundation
- The Cape and Islands United Way
- The Palmer and Jane D. Davenport
- Joseph Nickerson Trust
Cape Abilities operates a farm with greenhouses and a farm stand on Route 6A in Dennis that has attracted a loyal following of people who crave high-quality, locally-grown produce. We also have a working farm in Marstons Mills that features a historic home and barn but no farm stand, so produce grown there is brought to our Dennis farm stand to be sold. Between the two locations, Cape Abilities Farm provides paid employment for people with disabilities who work in every aspect of farm management.
Fresh produce, healthy plants and service with a smile are hallmarks of Cape Abilities Farm. Our award-winning tomatoes are especially sought-after, and some of the finest restaurants on Cape Cod feature Cape Abilities produce on their menus. Among them are the Brewster Fish House, Fin, Chatham Bars Inn, the Naked Oyster, Pain D’Avignon and the Red Pheasant.
Farm work has proven satisfying, instructive and therapeutic to Cape Abilities participants who enjoy being productive and making things grow. Our farm workers do everything from planting seeds to training tomato vines to packaging produce, and they are living proof that Cape Abilities Farm grows much more than beautiful annuals, perennials, herbs and vegetables—Cape Abilities Farm grows futures.
