New Programming for people on the Autism Spectrum/Neurodiversity

Welcome to The Farm Program

The Farm campus is a 94-acre working farm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, Greenville, Spartanburg, and Charlotte. Thirty-six residents, both men, and women live in three separate lodges, with twelve residents per lodge in private bedrooms and private baths.

The peaceful, bucolic campus is in the heart of horse country. Farm residents spend most of their week on campus, with trips into the surrounding area typically scheduled for the weekends. The lodges and barns also include staff homes, an art barn and woodshop, a 4-acre lake, and organic gardens and greenhouses.
