Monday marked a momentous day for us. The Sonoma County board of supervisors finally approved our commercial cultivation license. It was a long road, but worth it. And after years of planning, communicating and hard work, it’s time to realize the dream.

Marking a major milestone in wine country, Sonoma County has moved to turn some of its famous and quality land into craft cannabis cultivation- and we are lucky enough to call it ours. On September 30, Petaluma Hills Farm, located at Sonoma Hills Farm, was granted the first one-acre conditional use permit for a cannabis grow in Sonoma County. This license marks a significant milestone for cannabis cultivation in California wine country.

This permit, and pending cultivation permits, demonstrates a huge step forward for California cannabis cultivators, wine country, and artisanal cannabis grows throughout the country. We are ushering in a new era that will allow small farmers of fine cannabis to equally participate, and ideally thrive, in Sonoma County.

And so it begins.
