At Genesis Pharms we believe in a holistic approach to plant production and are dedicated to growing practices that promote soil health, conserve natural resources, and prevent environmental degradation.
Building the Soil
We grow a culture of plants that not only encourages beneficial bugs but also helps diversify the soils ecological system. Inviting in such a variety of bugs allows for totally natural pest management.
Genesis Pharms uses the same techniques as nature has used for millions of years. In nature, plants feed from the extradites of bugs and the decomposition of organic material. A lot of the decomposition is done with different forms of mycelium. Every year we continue to naturally replenish the soil with crops grown on the property. Leaving the soil unturned allows for the spread of mycelium between all plants. This allows the plants to share vital nutrients, as well as providing an effective means of water control.
Keeping it Local
It is the goal of Genesis Pharms to optimize our farm to become fully self sufficient. Utilizing the latest technology and Mother Nature, we will have a farm that feeds itself! We strive to get nearly everything we need locally. This does more than just keep the money local. Locally sourced plants have adapted to the soils and weather patterns of the Willamette Valley, making a smoother transition to the fields of Genesis Pharms.
Besides growing premium cannabis for our products, we also plant and harvest more traditional crops such as hops, tomatoes, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, beans, peas, cucumbers, corn, sunflowers, pumpkins and more. You can find this healthy, organic produce seasonally in local markets and restaurants.
Certified Kind is an earth-friendly way of farming rooted firmly in the idea that the way we farm is just as important as the yield. Certified Kind is a private sustainable agricultural standard intended for state-sanctioned cannabis growers and processors who want to prove they are committed to earth kind production. The goal of Certified Kind growers is to produce crops in harmony with natural systems using methods that are Kind to Life and Kind to Earth.
The Certified Kind program is unique because it allows producers of industrial hemp, legal cannabis, and cannabis products to obtain third-party certification confirming their products are produced in a way that is kind to life and kind to the planet.
Since USDA Organic certification is not yet allowed for Cannabis, Certified Kind exists to offer certification for the organic cannabis farmer and processor. Certified Kind growers are able to use the Certified Kind name and logo to differentiate their crop and support earth-friendly cannabis production.
