Karla Avila and Jacob Johnson started Flowerdaze Farm in California’s famed Emerald Triangle with a focus on farming cannabis sustainably with as small of a carbon footprint as possible. Today, their small farm produces 200-300 pounds of craft cannabis annually, selling for up to $1,500 per pound. But thanks to their regenerative farming techniques, their costs are extraordinarily low.
In this episode of Seed to CEO, Karla and Jacob share:
- How to be both a regenerative and profitable farm.
- How to reduce nutrient and other input costs by using inputs already available on the farm.
- How to market regeneratively grown cannabis and get top dollar for it.
