Foothill River Farms was founded with one primary purpose:
TO CULTIVATE THE MOST THERAPEUTIC CANNABIS STRAINS, AS NATURALLY AS POSSIBLE, WITH DILIGENT RESPECT FOR OUR COMMUNITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT.
Today, we serve discerning businesses that share our exceedingly high
standards for premium craft cannabis.
Our genetics were handed down to us by leading breeders throughout the Emerald Triangle and the Sierra Nevada foothills. They are unrivaled for their distinct, powerful therapeutic value.
As stewards of the land, we honor our natural growing environment and local watersheds. We are attentive to following the best management practices we’ve set in place.
We’re here to share knowledge while attending to our clients needs. And we are always open to learn from others. Our focus on building up our community is just as important as cultivating the best cannabis.
For 15 years, we have been cultivating high-quality cannabis strains that provide the most effective health benefits. In that time, we’ve seen our patients’ symptoms minimized and diagnoses reversed. We are second-generation family farmers that bring legacy cannabis culture, values and practices into the new commercial marketplace. We take great pride in our work and focus on producing the cleanest, purest, most sustainable cannabis possible to help people feel better and improve their well-being.
OUR UNIQUE REGION
The Sierra Foothills region is unrivaled for optimal cannabis cultivation. Its particularly dry climate led growers to breed strains that thrived. Over decades, the caregivers and medicine makers of our community have discovered the healing wonders of cannabis and intentionally bred and stewarded these balanced THC/CBD cultivars. Foothill River Farms is grateful for the opportunity to work with these spectacular genetics.
We don’t focus cultivation on strains that yield the most, are easiest to grow, or are most profitable. In contrast, we work with strains that are the most therapeutic to people.
Foothill River Farms is devoted to increasing the quality of life in Nevada County and supports local organizations that work to do so. This is accomplished through involvement with local advocacy groups and local nonprofits. We cherish the community where we’ve been born and raised and are committed to bettering the world we live in.
We only provide flowers to certain clients to ensure continued reverence for the product. Our partners in this industry align with our mission and values and we believe it’s imperative that like-minded business in the supply chain support each other in these changing times.
Here’s how we do it:
Whole Plant Medicine
Because our ultimate goal is the customer’s well-being, we embrace the ‘Entourage Effect’ in which the synergy among plant compounds results in higher medicinal value. The strains we choose to grow are ones that have shown the best Entourage effects over a decade of treatment and feedback.
The lab results speak for themselves. No pesticides or residuals, no mold, and well-balanced, high potency profiles.
Finest Artisan Quality
Our small-batch garden allows us to attend to every detail, including preventive maintenance against pests and disease. By using natural sunlight, we promote the plant to mature into its optimal genetic profile, with enriched aroma, improved flavors, and more effective healing properties.
Unrivaled Growing Region
The climate and land of the Sierra Foothills produces some of the finest cannabis. With the power of the sun, our unique dry environment, and the region’s healthy, organic soil, we are able to grow unique strains that other regions just can’t support.
ENVIRONMENTAL AND COMMUNITY STEWARDSHIP
We take care of this region, and its local watersheds, because it plays a significant part in the success and livelihood of our plants, patients, and community.
We know the value of relationships. That’s why we make a point of being friendly, open, and communicative. We serve businesses who appreciate our values and willingness to work together in an inclusive way.
For us, cultivation is a labor of love. We believe cannabis improves lives. So, we go the extra mile to deliver premium quality our business partners expect.
