NurseGrown Organics is proud to be Vermont’s first Clean Green Certified hemp farm.
Clean Green is the largest, nationally recognized, third party certifier for the cannabis industry, promoting responsible, sustainable and organic agriculture with an emphasis on consumer safety.
At NurseGrown Organics, we believe that the best approach to farming cannabis and hemp is through organic and regenerative cultivation practices focusing on nurturing and building our soils while working to address the causes of and solutions for climate change.
Hidden in the soil matrix is a complex web of living organisms that work in conjunction with our plants. These microbial and fungal colonies help improve and enhance the physical condition of the soil - also known as tilth - and plant health by aerating soils, decomposing organic matter, and cycling nutrients. These symbiotic relationships help us bring our plants to their full genetic and therapeutic potentials.
We encourage biodiversity in and around our fields, release beneficial insects to minimize pest pressures and use cover crops, organic compost, and other amendments to build our soil health and sequester carbon.
We never use chemicals or pesticides in the production of our crops, working within and honoring the framework that nature has provided us. We also strive to reduce our carbon footprint and are working towards being fully self sustaining with a net zero carbon footprint.
Each season, we research and carefully choose our hemp genetics, starting all our plants under the Vermont sunshine from reputable seed breeders. We are tireless stewards of the land, hand planting, and harvesting small craft batches of premier Vermont hemp flowers without mechanization. The epitome of craft cannabis cultivation.
As Clean Green certified farmers, we are held to the absolute highest standards for both the cultivation, harvesting, and processing of our crops. From our beautiful flower to our high potency extracts and products, it's our primary goal to provide you with the cleanest cannabis possible.
We passionately believe that organic, sustainable, and responsible agricultural and processing practices benefit the earth, our farm, the cannabis we produce, and ultimately, you.
For the team here at NurseGrown Organics, farming means farming sustainably. Every year we look to improve the soil and reduce our carbon footprint, doing our best to support the future of farming and agriculture in Vermont.
However, when we think about our future, it is crucial to remember the past. All the iconic little farms dotting the countryside of Vermont and New England are on land that was stolen from Native American people by white colonizers who “founded” the state.
The entirety of Vermont and most of New Hampshire are on Wabanaki and Abenaki lands. Not only did the U.S. government steal the lands from the Native people and sell it off, it continues to censor, marginalize, and target Native populations.
This is why it’s important for us to recognize that we are living and farming on stolen land, and do our utmost to support reallocation of resources back to marginalized communities while simultaneously giving back to the earth.
