Ahavah Farm: a bountiful 40-acre farm located in Peyton, CO (population of 250).
Owned and operated by Yosef Camire, his wife Chava, and their five young children, this beautiful farm produces the purest food possible, all while generating a positive environmental impact.
On July 4, 2012, driven by the desire to be a part of a tight-knit Jewish community, the Camires moved to Denver from New Hampshire with three children; however, they quickly realized city-life wasn’t the best fit for their lifestyle. Fast forward two years, and the Camires find themselves twenty minutes east of Colorado Springs on a 40-acre lot with a dilapidated house in desperate need of some TLC (it didn’t have a kitchen, plumbing, or a roof. In the words of Yosef, “it was a mess”). At the time, Yosef was an engineer and farming wasn’t anywhere on his radar. On top of that, the location of their property was, at the time, the “worst place to grow vegetables.” The soil was “zero percent organic matter,” completely unsuitable for plant life.
