We care about people and we are proud of what we do. Cultivating Cannabis is an art form derived from agricultural practices that enshrines healing and community. As we carry the torch forward, we recognize the need to embrace those values for the benefit of all.
Over the years, our love for the cannabis plant has grown into a way of life that continuously evolves with the times. Like you, we continue to see many changes in the cannabis culture, cannabis laws, and society's acceptance and utilization of this sacred plant.
Conscientious environmental stewardship is an important focal point of our organization. Organic and regenerative farming practices are the basis of our agricultural methodology and are echoed all the way up the supply chain.
We are committed to growing productive crops while preserving and improving our little piece of paradise. Utilizing modern knowledge and microbiological advancements of the soil food web we continually replenish and protect our top soil and keep the local water ways clean while producing medical grade cannabis .
How We Do It
From seed to sale, we use safe, proven and organic methods to grow the plants and manage any pests and pathogens. These best practices ensure a safe working environment along with clean and pesticide free cannabis products that will pass rigorous testing requirements. Superior quality cannabis flower is at the heart of it all.
Soil is teaming with life. In a healthy system the beneficial organisms dominate the pathogens. So, understanding who the 'good guys' are is key. It is important to be able to identify, qualify and quantify the biological components of a healthy soil system (bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes, micro-arthropods) and use the data to better manage our resources and achieve the desired results of a delicious, bountiful and clean crop.
The nitrogen and carbon cycles are part of the natural order. All life needs nitrogen and carbon. In healthy soil, nitrogen and carbon are sequestered in the bodies of the microorganisms. As the organisms live and die, nitrogen, carbon, water and other nutrients become available to the plant and do not leach out of the soil.
Compost is a fantastic! We control the inputs, so we determine the output. With compost, soils become richer and more fertile. The benefits include a unique quality and flavorful products.
Compost retains nitrogen and carbon in the organic matter, not allowing it to off gas into the atmosphere. Good compost can be tailored to harbor all the necessary microorganisms needed to drive plant growth, control pests and provide a diverse ecosystem for roots to thrive in. It also reduces the need to replace soil and nutrients after every crop. Ultimately cutting input and labor costs while saving time, eliminating waste and making the farm more productive and profitable.
Cannabis is not all equal in quality. Who is growing your cannabis? What kind of cannabis are they growing? How are they growing your medicine? Do you know what makes great cannabis? Growers who breed cannabis are responsible for choosing which genetic expressions get introduced to the market place. Excellent breeding requires a lot of work, a tremendous amount of time and good taste buds! Developing a true line can be very meticulous and fun. Cannabis offers a wide range of variables and affects. It may take years in order to successfully breed a cannabis line and make substantial contributions to the cannabis gene pool. Breeders continuously test for their desired traits such as; cannabinoid profile, plant structure, growth rate, taste, smell and affect.
Some cultivars and their lineages stand the test of time and earn a place in the arcade of champions. High-end varietals are extremely difficult to acquire and generally remain preserved by the breeder. They are used to create hybrids that are then released in seed form to other growers.
