Morrow Valley Farmstead

Breaking ground in August of 2019, Morrow Valley Farmstead will be a state of the art, 10-bed facility providing specialized long-term medical care for aging individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental disabilities. 

Located on 50 beautiful acres at the base of Morrow Mountain in Albemarle, NC, the farmstead will include a working farm, pesticide-free gardens, animal-assisted therapy, therapeutic horticulture activities, 24-hour health care services, telemedicine, progressive digital technology, electronic monitoring, and whole-person coordinated care. 

The first of its kind, Morrow Valley Farmstead will allow residents the opportunity to age gracefully and comfortably in an inspiring home environment that is customized for their unique needs and interests.
