Farm Fresh Bounty on Cape Cod

Farm Fresh on Cape Cod

We were recently introduced to the wonderful Cape Abilities Farm, which is located just a few minutes from our inn along Route 6A, in Dennis. The farm is part of  the non-profit organization Cape Abilities, which began life back in 1968 in the town of Orleans. Today there are several arms of the organization, including a consignment and thrift shop in Barnstable Village, also just a short drive from us. The main objective of Cape Abilities is to help provide jobs, homes and other services to Cape Codders with disabilities, and their mantra is “We believe that each person has capabilities, not disabilities”. The farm itself employs 80 people with disabilities, who work in all aspects of farm management. Traditional and hydroponic methods are used to grow vegetables and flowers, and the farm is open to the public daily between 10 am and 6 pm.
