Madison Fields is a neuro-inclusive, community-powered agricultural & equine resource center located in Montgomery County, Maryland. Our programs prioritize health & wellness, building community, and providing life-affirming opportunities to participate. This historic 400-acre farm is dedicated to those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) who too often find themselves on the margins. We invite members of the community to join us, reconnect with the natural environment and form relationships with others who have diverse interests and abilities.
As a proud member of the Agricultural Reserve in Montgomery County Maryland, we share a commitment to the preservation of rural space and respect for the environment. Madison Fields provides an ideal setting for students of all ages to learn about our interdependence with nature and the vital role that agriculture and diversity plays in the flourishing of life. We provide our guests with a variety of outdoor activities and educational instruction.
We offer a robust volunteer program with a wide variety of opportunities for both individuals and groups who would like to offer their time and talents to move our mission forward. Volunteers support our programs, maintain the grounds, and ensure the success of our farm-based enterprises. Working side-by-side with those with disabilities to accomplish the goals of a volunteer project reveals the talents and abilities that our population has to contribute.

The Garden at Madison Fields
The Garden at Madison Fields, nurtured by Locals Farm Market is a one-acre garden that fosters community through food donation, down-to-earth volunteer opportunities, agricultural education, and by supporting adults with autism and other differences in ability.
Our long term vision includes the future development of an intentional, neurodiverse agrihood on 10 housing lots adjacent to the working farm.
