Sustainable Farming

Eden Farms cultivates the highest quality cannabis by using sustainable practices that benefit people and the planet. We have won more awards for outdoor flowers than any other company in California.

Surrounded by the beautiful redwood forests of Humboldt County, Eden Farms is constantly developing new methods and formulas to optimize our quality and yield in ecologically responsible ways. In contrast most conventional agricultural practices damage the environment and contribute significantly to global warming. Eden Farms aims to cultivate wellness of the planet and its people.
We follow principles of permaculture to mimic nature and support the native environment. We combine cover crops, vermiculture, and composting to produce the best crop without using conventional nutrient feeding programs. We water our plants in the sunshine; the soil does the rest.

We believe the future of our planet depends on our actions today.
