Recognizing the value of education and community involvement for adults with developmental
disabilities, Heritage Christian Services assumed the operations of Springdale
Farm in 1993. The farm, part of
Northampton Park, remains under the ownership of Monroe County and is a model of government/non-profit collaboration.
The farm provides meaningful work opportunities for more than 25 men and women with
developmental disabilities to take care of the animals and the grounds, assist
with group tours and greet visitors. The farm is open to the public and brings
in nearly 40,000 guests annually through families, pre-school groups, school
classes and other children's organizations. The demonstration farm/day program
combination is unique in that children can learn about the workings of a farm
while seeing people with developmental disabilities engaged in valuable
community service. In the past 10 years, farm tours and programs have grown to
support educational curriculums as set by New York State standards.
It is through its partnership with Monroe County, foundations and many local
supporters that Heritage Christian Services is able to make Springdale Farm
open to the public and recognized as an agricultural education center.
