Having devoted our first 8 years of farming solely to the Hippocratic ideal, “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”, we’re starting to see more light in (his) lesser known adage “Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, there is also a love of Humanity.” It has been fascinating to embark on a journey into the world of plant medicine these last two years alongside the cannabis plant. And, while we knew there was a rich and ancient sub-culture centered around that craft we never fully understood or participated in it until now. Being focused solely on producing delicious and sustainably raised food, and, not being cannabis users in the least, we never would have imagined that this one plant would influence our path so profoundly. Now we are seeing every day how plant medicine is the medicine of the people, and no less an ancient art. It has the potential to be an equitable model of disseminating healing and quality of life to all people groups while subverting the consolidation of power.
Needless to say, we’re humbled to be on this journey with you all.
