Autistic Farmers Of America (AFOA) is established to operate a model organic farming enterprise where autistic adults can gain farming skills with crops and animals to optimize their capabilities for self-sufficiency. The leadership for this operation is provided by disabled combat Veterans from the American military from 3 of its wars: The Korean War, the Vietnam War and the War on Terror. It plans to support that purpose from donations to sustain both the direct operating costs of the farm, and subsidize the participation of an annual group of autistic adults for that experience. This experiment has not been attempted before this group of American Military put this company together. Both the leaders of the AFOA and the autistic people involved are disabled.
We are accepting donations in order to maintain our Survival Farm for autistic people to work with our farming staff and learn how to farm. Every $10 dollars donated buys a 50 pound bag of cracked corn. Every $15 dollars donated buys a 50 pound bag of protein rich laying pellets or medicated chick starter. Our Survival Farm is not in retail or wholesale business because our large flock of poultry (2000) and rabbits are not for sale but are strictly for educational purposes only. The autistic people are more comfortable with this system in order to ‘love’ the animals they are breeding. Each person who donates to our AFOA will be logged in and presented with fine papers making them an official member of our AFOA.
