sun grown, off grid, organic standards
Coming from a background in vegetable farming, we grow outdoors at our off grid homestead using organic practices & inputs that mirror those used on our certified organic, no-till hemp crop. Learn more about our hemp and garlic crop HERE. We also have a mini flint corn project that you can learn about HERE.
We use locally made compost and grow in full sun. Once the plants start flowering and filling out, we cover them to avoid losing trichomes to soaking rains. After harvesting & curing, our flower is hand trimmed, extracted in ice water for traditional hash and pressed into rosin. In an energy intensive industry, we strive to limit our energy use, inputs & streamline our process for greater efficiency.
How we grade our rosin
The quality of the starting material & the spectrum of hash collected determines which label it recieves.
Red label, the craft grade, is made from smaller, less ripe buds which are usually a bi-product from trimming. We do not use the trim for hash, just the buds too small to trim. This grade is collected in as wide a spectrum as possible, usually 45-190 (this refers to the physical size of trichome heads that are collected on various sizes screens)
Yellow label, our artisan grade, is made from the whole plant, including the biggest, ripest buds collected into as wide a spectrum as possible, usually 45-160. Red and yellow label are both full spectrum hash rosin but yellow tends to be the best value for the quality of all three grades.
Black label is a narrower spectrum of the trichome heads and is our fine grade. It is also made with the whole plant including top buds but is collected on a 73-120 or 90-120 sized collection screen. The resin in these screens is more ripe and has a sharper flavor, as well as the highest potency possible.
