About the entry
We are a MOFGA certified organic farm specializing in organic sun-grown flowers and oils. We plant directly in the ground, in amended rows of soil, which dramatically reduces our water usage and allows natural cover crops to proliferate. We feed the soil with 1-2 compost teas a month and let rain do the rest. For pest control we rely on beneficial organisms and promote the natural ecology of our area to encourage this symbiosis. The last 3-4 weeks of the flowering season we put clear plastic "roofs" over our plants to prevent rain from hitting the buds, drastically reducing the presence of mold while eliminating the need to spray our flowers. This technique also allows the plants to flower a week or two longer than if left uncovered, which seems to amplify the terpene and THC concentration. After harvest we hang and cold dry our flowers for about 3 weeks then hand trim and cure for another 2. Our sun-grown flower fetches the same or higher price than most indoor and I'm proud to say that we're one of the only producers to have sun-grow flowers featured on the top shelf, which regularly sell out faster than equivalent indoor.
About the grower
When I was 17 I had half my sacrum removed due to a large tumor growth. I was left with neurological complications and wanted to try treating them with cannabis oil, so I began growing and extracting my own cannabis in 2010. In 2016 I went to Northern California with my partner Haley and we spent the season working on an organic medical cannabis farm. We came back east with the skills we learned in the Emerald Triangle and established Green Xtrax, a MOFGA certified "soil to oil" medical cannabis farm specializing in organic oils and sun-grown flower. In 2021 we opened our first storefront in Limerick.
