The Easterseals Story: AgrAbility
Making Dreams Come True

Kipp, a veteran with a disability, has always dreamed of farming. With AgrAbility, new technology is making this dream a reality. A new air seat cushion increases Kipp’s comfort on his tractor. A tilt and corral system allow him to work more animals without stress to his injuries. A grapple and baler tripled hay production this year. “We sincerely thank Ohio AgrAbility, Easterseals and Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities for supporting disabled farmer veterans,” stated Ivory Harlow, Kipp’s wife. “[We] thank each of you for supporting Kipp’s dream to farm.”
