Where do we grow our hemp?
We partner with Pete’s Greens to grow the hemp we use to make our products on 70 acres of pristine farmland in Craftsbury, Vermont. Our hemp crop is USDA Certified Organic, non-GMO, pesticide free and sustainably grown using our own proprietary seed stock. Clean soil, water and fresh Vermont air makes for clean hemp, and that’s the key to crafting clean cannabinoids that you can feel good about using every day. Upstate supports regenerative and organic farming practices.
The FUTURE OF FARMING
What does the future hold?
Upstate is proud to be a founding member and anchor tenant of Nordic Farm – a six hundred acre regenerative farm in Charlotte, VT. Nordic Farm will become a catalyst for revitalizing key agricultural and value-added food sectors through the lens of agrotourism. The pillars of Nordic Farm are:
Cultivation: Regenerative organic hemp and artisanal grains, high value botanicals, perennial fruit and nut orchards, gourmet and medicinal mushrooms;
Production: Milling, malting, brewing, distilling, aquaculture and herbal apothecary incubator;
Climate Change Mitigation: Soil/ecosystem regeneration, carbon offset origination and renewable energy production and storage (solar, anaerobic digestion);
Ecological Habitat Restoration: Migratory bird sanctuary and research station, pollinator habitat, apiaries, regenerative demonstration gardens, X-country skiing and nature trails;
Nordic Farm encapsulates the ethos of Vermont in terms of community values, regenerative cultivation, responsible land-use practices, sustainable organic production, and transparent farm-to-table processes for job creation and rural economic development.
