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 will start with planting four acres, yielding 52,580 pounds of fresh produce in 2018. The JKCF grows sweet potatoes, lettuce, kale, turnips, sweet corn, bell peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, and more.
Each year, with the help of 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 among other local partners.
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 50,000 pounds 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.
JK Moving Services
Care and respect. Chuck Kuhn founded JK Moving Services on these two simple but fundamental values.
He hired logistics experts and full-time employees passionate about helping others. And as the company grew, he invested in their professional development, with training that reflected industry best practices and a two-story, fully furnished house where moving teams could perfect their techniques.
JK expanded into long-distance and international moves, developing a powerful network of certified global partners. Operations evolved into a comprehensive suite of services for clients: storage, relocation, logistics, asset management, archival services, and document imaging, disposal, and recycling.
Today, JK is the largest owned and operated, independent moving company in North America, and the mover of choice for U.S. presidents, professional athletes, Fortune 500 companies, and families around the world. We’ve been honored with certifications, awards, and customer testimonials that speak to our record of outstanding performance.
