Our Cultivation Performance

 

We are a boutique indoor hydroponic garden specializing in high-potency cannabis cultivation.  Founded in 2014, we have built our reputation on providing our medical patients with the absolute best flower we produce, a commitment we carry with us to this day.

We proudly share our testing history to demonstrate our commitment to our craft, our support for the intent behind ORELAP, and our ability to consistently deliver premium flower to market 12 months a year.

CONSCIOUS Cultivation techniques?  

We Got 'em

First of all...    Pesticides? We don't use them. We minimize and remove "bad bugs" in the garden through meticulous preventative procedures, environmental control, and beneficial/predatory insects. This is a more expensive and complicated process, but it's important and worth it. We don't want our patients to ingest poisons, and you shouldn't have to either!

We use an air exchange system, opposed to using air conditioning. One of the benefits of air exchange is that it removes CO2 from the Earth's atmosphere; air enters the garden with high PPM, and is exhausted at a lower PPM. This also means our garden is somewhat seasonal, during the summer it's much warmer, and in the winter we can make it cooler if we choose to. This proves to be a more challenging path to cultivating cannabis, but it also means our garden demands and wastes less of our communities valuable resources.

We grow hydroponically, using the best coco growing medium available. Coco, derived from coconut husks, is a completely renewable resource. Some other popular substrates, like peat moss and rock-wool, are not renewable.

We use the world's finest fertilizers. We have experience growing with organic fertilizers, and may return to all organics in the future. The truth is, using some synthetic fertilizers allows us to fine tune the fertilizer regime for each strain, perfecting each one individually.  Even though we use synthetic fertilizers, we still maintain healthy bacteria often associated with organic farming. In pursuit of the perfect fertilizer regiment for each individual strain, we found that we can lower the EC and still have an equally satisfying yield and quality. This practice results in significantly cleaner run off(2-5 times) than farmers using standard/common practices can claim.  In addition, double-blind testing has shown the vast majority prefer the synthetically supplemented end product.

Perhaps it is our perfectly timed final flush, or maybe our controlled drying and curing process that makes us unique. We are not fans of long, extended curing, we cut down and dry the whole plant for about one week. It is then manicured by a team of experts, and left out to breath for another four or five days. We think it smells and tastes the best between two and six weeks after the harvest. 

 

At Farmer 12, we employ highly skilled trimming staff who are committed to providing the absolute highest quality flower.  We painstakingly look over our flower in great detail to ensure that every nug leaving our facility meets the standards necessary for us to put the Farmer 12 name on it.  Quality comes first...   Period.

We are committed to providing employment for our fellow Oregonians.  We have seen first hand that the type of work we offer is suitable for those who, due to physical ailments, may have difficulty finding employment elsewhere.  This is a commitment we make to our community for no reason other than because we here at Farmer 12 feel that it's the right thing to do.

Patient Rights and Relief Services

Our Belief in Patient Rights & Relief Efforts

 

“The Co-op" is an organization of registered Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) caregivers and growers who volunteer their time, skills, and resources towards bringing OMMP patients in residential care facilities and hospice access to medicinal cannabis. For over fifteen years, this dedicated group has striven to provide assistance to patients with the most need due to the combined medical, environmental, and financial limitations they face. By working together with the residential care and hospice facilities of the patients we serve, they are able to greatly improve the quality of life of their patients and help them cope with the medical conditions they face.

For each participating patient, 'The Co-op' :

  • Covers the expenses related to becoming a registered OMMP patient.
  • Provides medicinal cannabis via a facility accepted modality.
  • Checks-in with the patient on a weekly basis
  • Maintains a patient chart to document which medicinal cannabis strains have been dispensed, the symptoms being experienced, and the effectiveness of the “prescribed” strain & modality of medicinal cannabis on their symptoms.
  • Regularly communicates with their nurses, administrators, and attending physicians.

Our patients have supported individuals being affected by:

  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • AIDS,
  • M.S.
  • End of life
  • Cancer
  • Epilepsy
  • Conditions due to accidents; auto, fire and even gun shot wounds.

Prior to being assisted by 'The Co-op', each prospective patient completes an intake assessment to determine if their symptoms may be eased through the use of medicinal cannabis, and if they will be able to comply with the rules & regulations set by the OMMP, their individual care facility, and the 'The Co-op'.

During those fifteen years over 90 of those we cared for have passed on. We have done our best to make the most of Oregon's medical marijuana program. We feel and hope to have made a small difference and cherish the experience. For the last 10 years the team and family at 'Farmer 12' has proudly been the primary medical marijuana producer for 'The Co-op.'
