Then when you take into consideration the younger members that have experience in newer equipment and using computerized watering systems and climate control we are very excited about the premise of this taking off.
Sometimes, although there is a need for change, steps that you need to take to make it happen can be very difficult. Myself along with several of the other farming families in our area have come together to try to make things better for ourselves. With the constant battle between market prices and the importing of fruits and vegetables from other countries we are finding it difficult to make ends meet so we want to form a group and combined some of our land to start a marijuana farm. This would be a co-op of swords and seeing as recreational and medical marijuana are both legal in our state it should be a profitable one. When you combine the experience of multiple farmers and multiple generations it can’t help but be a success on the growing end.

The biggest issue we are facing is the fact that our local government refuses to rezone our farmland to commercial property. Even though the land would still be used for farming purposes we will be offering our products to retailers for sale and they say this indicates more of a business rather than a farm. We are in the process of filing different paperwork to find a way around this is zoning law and hopefully within the next two months we will be able to begin operations. Some of our farmers are even related to some of the board members so I really don’t understand why they are so against this.
