Where People Grow

Lambs Farm is a place that touches everyone who comes in contact with us. To our residents, Lambs Farm is home. It’s a safe, caring environment and extended family of peers. It’s a place to make a contribution to the community while being as self-sufficient as possible. And to our visitors, Lambs Farm is a place to grow through enriching experiences with people with developmental disabilities.

Lambs Farm has been helping people with developmental disabilities lead productive, happy lives since 1961.


Lambs Farm is home, and a place they are proud to share with our visitors.


Lambs Farm is also a place to grow through enriching experiences with people with developmental disabilities while creating lasting connections with their families and ours.


We strive to maintain exemplary vocational, residential and recreational programs, and to operate our organization in a manner that will continue to help people grow.
