Farming status, plans, and practices
After working for a number of years in the cannabis industry in Humboldt county, California, I am interested in applying my skills and experience in New York's developing cannabis industry. I have experience in all aspects of commercial organic cannabis farming from seeds to sales.
Our fundamental company values are rooted in artistry and awareness; we want to grow the best cannabis available, and we believe the best way to do this is with environmentally-sound and sustainable agriculture. Through a combination of permacultural growing practices, renewable energy, and eco-friendly production technology; our goal is to grow certifiably organic, 100% carbon-neutral cannabis.

Farming Plans and Practices
Farming method or practice
- Organic (certified)
- Organic (not certified)
I plan on utilizing the help of livestock animals in my biodynamic farming practices, including goats/sheep for wild vegetation management, chickens for pest control and fertilizer, and bees for non-invasive pollination.
My wife and I already run a storefront in Beacon, NY that will serve as a processing and retail location, in addition we plan to use our existing social media outlets and online marketing strategies.
Farm business plan or farm resume
Very basic farm equipment needed such as a earth auger, a walking tiller, mower, chainsaw etc. Fenced land is ideal to keep out deer. A barn or warehouse is ideal for drying, processing and storing crops. Water and Electrical access are both must-haves.
We are currently looking to lease land, but would be open to discussing the possibility of purchasing land in the future.
