Mission Statement

"Full Spectrum Farms will serve adults with autism and their families by providing a farm community where individuals can live and work in a healthy, enriching environment and achieve independence through meaningful work, recreation, and community involvement"

Description

Founded in 2002 by parents of children with ASD, Full Spectrum Farms is a non-profit organization serving individuals with ASD in Western North Carolina. Located at 1185 Wayehutta Road in Cullowhee, NC, we are a thirty-four acre farm where individuals with ASD can live, work, and explore in a safe and encouraging environment. We work with clients of all ages to hone interpersonal, social, and community involvement. When completed, Full Spectrum Farms will provide a unique model for ASD services as a nurturing community where individuals with ASD can live and work with a focus on organic farming and natural crafts and art. The Farm will help individuals with ASD develop lifelong learning and living skills through projects such as woodworking, pottery, and weaving, as well as growing and selling organic produce and flowers. Through these endeavors we will provide an opportunity for individuals with ASD to support their communities and themselves
