JK Community Farm
Founded in 2018, the JK Community Farm – a 501(c)(3) started by JK Moving Services – provides children, senior citizens, and families facing food insecurity with fresh, organic fruit, vegetables, and protein. Our farm grows produce without chemical pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, and features many examples of sustainable agriculture, including a compost system, rainwater harvesting, and drip irrigation.
The JK Community Farm works to increase access to fresh produce and protein to families in Virginia facing food insecurity through produce and protein donations, educational programs, corporate team building, and community gardening.
Located in Loudoun County, Virginia, the 150 acre Community Farm grows on 8 acres and utilizes 60 acres for our protein program, yielding 114,141 pounds of fresh organic produce and protein in 2019. The JKCF grows sweet potatoes, lettuce, kale, turnips, sweet corn, bell peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, and more. Our protein program consists of grass-fed angus beef, venison and we are excited to add egg donation from free-range chickens in 2020.
Each year, with the help of over 3,000 volunteers, we donate sustainably grown produce and protein to local hunger relief organizations and shelters. The JK Community Farm distributes its yield in partnership with Loudoun Hunger Relief, Food For Others (Fairfax), and Arlington Food Assistance Center.
The JK Community Farm is maintained by our farm manager, Michael Smith, and numerous volunteers from the Northern Virginia Community.
Mike Smith is a local farmer and William and Mary graduate. Mike has grown organic produce on a large scale for several years and enjoys growing healthy, nutritionally dense produce with JK Community Farm for families in need.
We are proudly funded by JK Moving Services, donation, and grants.
What We do
The JK Community Farm was started to address food insecurity and provide a source of healthy, organic, locally grown produce for those in need. JKCF donates over 91,400 meals of organic, chemical-free produce and protein annually. Produce and protein donations are distributed to food kitchens, pantries, and shelters through partnership with Loudoun Hunger Relief among other local partners.
The JK Community Farm provides educational programs for learners of all ages. We host field trips, corporate team building events, and camps. Group education is a great opportunity to see farming up close while learning about sustainable vegetable production. We work with groups of all ages, but ask that groups are limited to 50 people.
All donations contribute directly to the operating budget of the Farm. We work hard to ensure that the Farm can continue to provide education as well as fresh produce and protein for those in need. Your support can go a long way towards helping the Farm accomplish our goals!
We rely on support from the entire community, particularly from businesses and charities want to consider sponsorship. We recognize our sponsors in many ways, from shout outs on social media to logos on our site to private volunteer events.
