Barn Builders Network

Barn Builders Network builds an informal peer support network of farmers and ranchers with disabilities across the nation. Limited personal resources and lack of services for people in rural areas can be obstacles for independent farmers and ranchers with disabilities. Perhaps a farmer might like to know of others in his or her state who are farming with the same type of disability or similar farming operation. Whatever the connection, BNG draws these people together to let them know that they were not alone. The information was compiled into a directory, which is updated as new people join the network. Application and more information are available on the site.

"We cannot afford to let the issue of disabilities be simply an afterthought. We have a unique opportunity now, as industry pours billions of dollars into upgrading the communications infrastructure, to make sure that people with disabilities are not left behind. Now is the time. Accessibility of services and products for all Americans has got to be a design feature, not an add-on."
