In 2011, Kate and DJ met on a 40-acre naked hippie commune in western Colorado’s North Fork Valley where residents focused on growing organic foods, living off the land, and supporting each other in work and life. The two were called there because they both wanted to learn to produce their own food with the aim of living a cleaner, healthier lifestyle.
We all know it’s easy to fall in love when you’re sporting your birthday suit and DJ and Kate soon did! The two moved off the commune but continued to develop their organic farming lifestyle. Eventually their passion and knowledge aligned with the valley’s ideal agricultural climate, inspiring them to serve the world starting their own organic hemp farm. The resulting crops were impressive and before long they joined forces with their entrepreneurial and pioneering fried, Andre.B. aka Agape Love to form Happy Buddha Hemp Co.
