What is Smile Farms?

Founded in 2015 by Jim & Chris McCann of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc., Smile Farms began as a single greenhouse operation. Since then, 1-800-Flowers has worked to expand the organization to 12 agricultural campuses, where they provide opportunities for over 375 Smile Farmers and their families.

Smile Farms works as a positive force in the labor market by leveraging partnerships with local non-profit and for-profit businesses to provide vocational, educational, and employment opportunities for people with disabilities. Their work generates purpose and pride, enhances life skills, and fosters socialization. Smile Farms’ unique agricultural campus-based model empowers individuals with disabilities to grow and sell products with a purpose, including a variety of plants and produce. Plants are sold at local Farmers' Markets and corporate pop-up sales. Produce is used in partners' culinary programs, sold to restaurants, and converted into preserved goods that generate sustainable revenue for their programs, including their Heat with Heart™ hot sauce. Smile Farms' signature products may be purchased locally, online, or at a variety of retailers throughout the United States. Smile Farms encourages giving back as a form of personal empowerment - seeking to combat food insecurity in local communities by donating a portion of crop yields at each campus. Smile Farms is shaping a better future where people with special needs are valued for the real contributions they make in their workplaces and communities.
