Since 2013 Old School Farm has, in conjunction with with MillarRich Supported Employment, been employing adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to work on our fully integrated Non-for profit farm based in Nashville, TN. Over the years we have developed specific tasks that each individual can take ownership of and work to develop their skill set. As our program has developed so has our task list and we are currently looking for part-time, year-round, new recruits. We understand that not all individuals are suited exactly to the wide range of tasks of an average farmer, so we have developed PerfectFit jobs. Our PerfectFit program has broken down the tasks on the farm to smaller units and as such we are able to accommodate a wider range of skills.
Our mission is to highlight your strengths, while expanding your skills!
