Kalispell, the First of Many

The first Farm in the Dell, a place for the developmentally disabled from in and around the Flathead to live, work and play.  In the late eighties Lowell and Susan Bartels had an idea that the developmentally disabled could use there unique abilities to become more self sufficient.  They could run a farm and enjoy working a farm and in turn become a valued part of the community. The original farm home was small and not designed for the needs of the residents. After years of planning, the new farm home and surrounding property can now house 12 residents and supports cattle, pigs and chickens.  This plan has been used for the other “farm” homes in Montana and through out the world.  Each Farm in the Dell community supports the residents as they strive to become vibrant members of there communities and we would like to thank everyone whose time, effort and contributions made this dream a...

Building in Butte

It’s true, the house is almost complete, and we’ll be moving people in as soon as we can. Room sponsors and donations are still being accepted, and there’s still plenty to do in Butte but it’s all coming together quite nicely. We just need a little more help, so if you can find it in your heart to donate, any amount, no matter how large or small, it will help us. In 2010 the Farm in the Dell International Foundation decided the need was too great to not expand the number of Farms. We raised money and worked closely with the communities of Great Falls and Butte to acquire land, build the homes, and now we’re nearing the time when the Farms will become a true home for several citizens of Montana. The complete plan for the Butte Farm in the Dell is changing, but it’s such an amazing change, everyone is going to be talking about it for years to come. In fact, it may be some of our biggest news ever. If you want to know more, you can always contact...

Saskatoon

The Farm in the Dell between Aberdeen & Saskatoon now houses six developmentally disabled individuals, even though there is still the construction of out buildings and a barn to be completed this spring.  The communities of Aberdeen and Saskatoon SK have welcomed this home into their arms.  Many community projects are under way with the building of large flower boxes to put around town and water and maintain to the growing and arranging flowers for sale at local markets.  The Staff and residents are all flourishing and look forward to another productive summer!!   And, our friends to the north have sent us an awesome update on the progress of the Farm in the Dell in Saskatoon. The spring has been very busy at Farm in the Dell. In addition to the residents, there are others transitioning during the day program, coming for supper and having overnight stays.
