Driven by equal parts creativity, defiant streak, and an early education from his Southern Humboldt-based uncle, he cultivated his first cannabis plant at age 13. In his 20’s he branched out to launch a fully producing farm on his family’s land in Mendocino, Beija Flor. We introduced our first crop in 2003. Through connections with farmers and breeders in the area, we continue to work to strengthen the world-class traditions of cannabis farms in the Emerald Triangle.
Beija Flor means ‘to kiss the flower’ or translates literally to ‘hummingbird’. Both interpretations reflect our obsession with the balance and delicateness of nature and desire to create an extraordinary experience.
