There are two primary choices in life:  to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.

Taking Root Farm's mission is to be a part of the solution to the problem our community faces: choice for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD). Founded on the principle of choice, Taking Root Farms is an alternative to urban integrated day services, currently the only option for individuals with I/DD in North Central Ohio.  Taking Root Farms believes in self directed services based on the principle of person-centered planning.  Simply put, our farm is a place of individual choosing.  Farmers choose to spend their day engaged in activities they enjoy.  Activities on the farm will focus on each individual farmer's goals and objectives related to social, vocational, recreational, leisure and learning activities.
