Our Story

Farmer Cooperation

The founders of Emerald Family Farms saw that the future for cannabis farmers was even more complex and competitive than the past. With the legalization of cannabis and an increased interest from corporate professionals, they knew that if the farmers of the region didn’t stand together, they would be marginalized. Farmers and Activists themselves, they created Emerald Family Farms to work in cooperation within the cannabis industry.

Our Mission

Our Products

Founded in 2015, Emerald Family Farms has been focused on cultivating award-winning cannabis and concentrate products, while working with smaller farmers to help them cross the hurdles of state compliance.

Incorporating the connoisseur cannabis of member farms from Mendocino, Humboldt and Trinity Counties into our supply chain helps us offer a wider strain variety to our customers and offers a life-line to the region’s farmers and our local communities.
