When Ken and Judy bought the farm from Ken’s parents in 1985, they named it JAKO, an acronym created from their names: Judith Ann, Kenneth Oliver. Little did they know that in a few short decades, hundreds of people would regularly come to visit Jako Farm and ask how that name came to be!
We welcome all payment types including venmo and cash app.
We do not ship products. In addition to some tricky state laws for transporting food out of state, we believe there is great value in seeing where your food is produced.
We deliver most foods to Wichita every two weeks. Our delivery runs every other Tuesday evening and has two drop points– northwest Wichita and east Wichita– where members can meet to pick up their orders. There is a $10 delivery fee. Call 620-663-1470 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
Absolutely! We believe one of the greatest values in your food journey is to see where your food is grown and produced. You are always welcome to visit Jako Farm to shop in our farm store or relax and in our kids’ play area. (If it’s your first time to Jako Farm, please click the “Become a member” button at the top right to find instructions for your fist visit.)
Unfortunately, much of the year it is not possible to see or touch the animals. Because we are a working farm and our pastures are quite large, much of the time the animals are grazing at a distance. However, several times each year we do have parties where we take people out to the pastures via hay rack ride. Join our community to stay posted on upcoming events!
We proudly and wholeheartedly support members who are trying to heal their bodies through pure food. Our family has experience with Keto, Paleo, AIP, Whole30, and GF diets. Please email email@example.com if you’d like to learn more, discuss, or find a like-minded friend in your food journey. For individual product-related allergy questions, please visit our product page.
We stand behind all of our products 100%. If you are not fully satisfied with anything you purchase from Jako Farm, please let us know so we can make it right.
Absolutely! Pasteurization and homogenization kill a majority of the vital components of raw milk. In addition, pasteurization renders a majority of the calcium insoluble. Commercial milk can also contain toxic drug residues, antibiotics, larvicides, pesticides, fertilizers and heavy metals. Conversely, raw, all-grass milk contains enzymes and bacteria that have been shown to strengthen your immune system, develop healthy bacteria in your intestines and reduce the risks of everything from respiratory disease to obesity. Raw, all-grass milk is TRULY a healthier alternative.
We’re always thinking of ways to improve the health of our land and food. We’ve named 2019 “The Year of Rejuvenating the Soil.” and we are learning so much about regenerative agriculture and the importance of soil health. We’re also starting a composting campaign to provide members the opportunity to donate their compostables to improve the Jako farmland.
Also on our mind is the issue of plastics. Currently, nearly all of our food items are packaged in plastic. We’d really love to change this, and welcome any creative ideas to that end.
Quality, hand-crafted, artisan food takes time and labor. We quality test every food to make sure it meets our JakoPure standards of excellence. Nothing that you buy from Jako Farm comes off of a production line or out of a warehouse… everything is grown and raised by our family on our farm. We watch our costs carefully and set prices to reflect the work needed to produce each product.
Here are two other things to consider when considering food cost: 1) High quality, nutrient dense foods, while more expensive, fill you up faster and keep you full longer. Many families that shop at Jako Farm find that when they switch from cheaper quality foods to nutrient dense foods, their families eat less. 2) When you invest in high quality food, you are investing in your future health. As Ken likes to say, “Pay for good food now, or pay the doctor later.”
