ARISE at the Farm

ARISE at the Farm is our accessible, inclusive interdisciplinary Independent Living Center  located on a 77-acre working horse farm in Chittenango, NY. Focused on the needs and interests of individuals with disabilities in the Central New York region, ARISE at the Farm is open throughout the year and offers a variety of recreational activities and other services. 

Recreation opportunities range from therapeutic horseback riding to school break programming, an accessible fishing pond and playground. All ARISE at the Farm programs are inclusive and welcome people of all abilities. 

Our 77-acre grounds at ARISE at the Farm are open to the public when we are not offering programs.  Our newly renovated offices are open during regular business hours year-round.
