Mission from Kayam Farm

Our mission is to embody and inspire social and ecological responsibility by transforming our community through hands-on Jewish agricultural education. Our farm is designed in order to feature halachic demonstrations of Jewish farming laws, and much of our curriculum draws upon Torah teachings through hands-on farming. But there’s far more to our Jewish agricultural heritage than we can plant on our farm—a massive, yet largely abandoned body of Jewish farming texts lies [sic] waiting for us, if only we can muster the skills and strength to encounter them.
