A Bit About This Couple

Immanuel Jarvis and Valarie Jarvis, RN are entrepreneurs in every sense of the word. Their passion for cultivating, harvesting, and preparing wholesome foods led them to share their knowledge across the socio-economic spectrum and instill an appreciation of nature, self-sustainability, and high-yield eating for the young and old in the Raleigh-Durham area.  Coupled with their business acumen and passion for good nutrition, they founded Jireh Farm Foundation in Durham, NC to be an outpost for animal husbandry, homesteading, and educating the public about natural foods.
