SunPork Farms


Autism and Agriculture is an initiative of SunPork Farms and Autism CRC which aims to improve animal welfare by creating opportunities in animal care for adults on the autism spectrum. In collaboration with the Pork CRC and Specialisterne Australia, nine autistic adults in South Australia and seven in Queensland were employed within SunPork Farms during the pilot program. Mentoring and workplace support will enable candidates to work in the agricultural industry, employing key strengths in animal care to ultimately enhance animal welfare. Autism and Agriculture acknowledges the funding provided by the South Australian Government to develop the pilot program.</br>
