"The vision of Berry Good Farms is to provide a self-sustaining industry for Transition students and graduates, encompassing education and post-graduate compensated employment. NFSSE students will be trained in the field of horticulture and production of agricultural goods. Berry Good Farms will allow NFSSE to expand its current Transition programming to include farming of fruits and vegetables to be marketed to restaurants, schools, and the local community. The industry employing students and alumni with developmental disabilities will provide sustainable food in an ecological manner.
