Agronomy, the science of soil management and crop production, is a primary focal point at Ananda Farms. As growers of craft cannabis, we are able to give more consideration to our growing, harvest, and curing procedures. All plants and flowers are handled with the utmost care; paying special attention to cleanliness and environment, resulting in a level of quality that is only possible through the intention and devotion to our craft.f
Ananda Farms is dedicated to the Earths ecology and takes major steps to preserve its integrity. Developing living soils through the use of earthworms, plant-based nutrients, and minimal soil disturbance promotes bioactivity in our growing systems. Ananda Farms is focused on regenerative farming, increasing habitat, and promoting plant diversity on our farm. We are thankful for these industry partners who share our agricultural visions.
Since 2004, Clean Green has been the benchmark for obtaining an “Organic” cannabis certification. Based on the USDA National Organic program, Clean Green inspects Ananda Farms each year to ensure that we cultivate our plants in alignment with their standards.
This includes, but is not limited to:
1. Water and Electric sourcing
2. Land Preservation and Erosion Control
3. Pest Management
4. Soil Amendments and Plant Nutrition
5. Plant Diversity among Agricultural Crop
6. State and Federal Compliance
Since 2016, Ananda Farms has participated in the Blue Sky Habitat program through Pacific Power. This ensures that power utilized on the farm is being generated by renewable energy sources. In 2019 Ananda Farms reduced its carbon footprint by 39,255 lbs. of Co2; and 23,620 lbs. in the first half of 2020. Blue Sky Habitat members also donate monthly to The Freshwater Trust which administers grants to restore Oregon’s inland fisheries.
The 2020 recipients of these grants were:
Upper Sandy Habitat Restoration Project
Neal Creek Instream Habitat Restoration Project
Bear Creek Riparian Restoration Initiative
Lower Hamilton Creek Riparian Restoration Project
Upper Wallowa River Restoration
Becoming ORELAP accredited in early 2017, Science of Cannabis Labs has been a cornerstone of the California testing community since 2010. High performance liquid chromatography with ultaviolet detection (HPLC-UV) is used to provide data for 15 cannabinoids and 36 terpenoids in each cannabis sample. They also ensure safety from Pesticides, Residual Solvents or Microbial Impurities, Water Activity and Moisture Content.
