The Humboldt Sun Growers’ Guild is a growing network of Humboldt County farmers that have joined together to support the brand True Humboldt. By uniting the farmers the guild can scale the brand to be competitive with large corporations without losing their independence. Each farmer cultivates cannabis under the sun with sustainable practices, maintaining the heritage of premium cannabis the region is world renowned for.
We’re a group of farmers.
We’re run by a conscience, not a corporation. The founding members have lived in Humboldt for an average of 25 years. We raise our families in Humboldt, and we run our businesses throughout Humboldt County and in Arcata. We’re always interested in talking to like-minded farmers, get in touch with us if you’d like to preserve the tradition of Humboldt quality and craft.
We work closely together.
By working together, we’re lowering the costs of production, establishing standards for superior consistency and quality control, competing in a competitive branded market, and preserving the heritage of Humboldt’s most notorious commodity.
We’re not just a collective of farmers who share our accumulated knowledge and experience with each other. We also employ members of our community whenever possible and pay them living wages. We work with local environmental engineers, lumber and construction companies, soil labs, nurseries, accountants, and more. We believe we’re all in it together.
We are leading by example.
Although we’ve been around for a while, we know reform is on its way and that we need to adapt. This requires vision and the ability to thrive in a new environment. We’re already leading by example, too. We are actively pursuing compliance with county and state regulatory agencies.
Some craftsmen work with hammers and saws. We work with the earth, flowers, and sun. Each True Humboldt farmer is dedicated to carrying on the tradition of quality.
