Cape Abilities Farm, Route 6A, Dennis
We operate Cape Abilities Farm to create jobs and raise revenue for the people we serve, increase awareness of our mission, and to act as a hub in our community to promote local sustainable farming. We provide fresh, healthy produce, including award-winning tomatoes, and gorgeous flowers and planters to our community through our farm stand, restaurants, local food pantries, and schools.
The greenhouses and farm stand on Route 6A in Dennis 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, and Pain D’Avignon.
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.
