What Heritage Grown Means
Heritage Cannabis is a legacy handed down by the pioneers of the California cannabis industry and is defined by lifetimes of hard work, discipline, knowledge, and culture. The term describes both the terroir of the land the cannabis was grown on, as well as the high-grade quality that only comes with the experience that generations of growing cannabis on the same land can deliver.
Humboldt’s Finest Farms is very proud to be part of this trailblazing legacy. Like many of today’s Southern Humboldt residents, we are second and third-generation cannabis farmers, the children and grandchildren of the counterculture refugees of the 60s and 70s that came to these quiet forests and formed communities off the grid.
This pioneering spirit has shaped many of the old-school farming techniques that have been handed down from generation to generation as closely guarded secrets. Undoubtedly, the heritage of Southern Humboldt County can be tasted in every flower grown on Humboldt's Finest Farms and we are honored to share that tradition with you.
HERITAGE GROWN VS. INDOOR
At Humboldt's Finest Farms, we’re helping to change the culture of cannabis held captive indoors, one heritage grown crop at a time.
Growing crops in natural sun produces premium cannabis that’s just as potent as indoor. That’s why “Heritage Grown” is not just a gimmick or a buzzword—it’s the future of cannabis farming.
Indoor grow rooms are a convenience that only benefits the grower. They’re good for discreet growing, and growing in any weather, in any location. There’s a short learning curve—anyone can learn the techniques. But large indoor growing facilities produce massive amount of toxic runoff and consume enormous energy and has enormous carbon footprint.
REDUCED ENERGY CONSUMPTION
Zero. That’s the amount of coal-burning energy we use to grow our crops. Our crops are grown by the sun, the way nature intended it. We’re committed to careful stewardship of this land’s natural resources—including energy.
Using natural sunlight benefits everyone—even non-cannabis consumers. Artificial light in grow rooms uses an enormous amount of energy—and in cities, this is usually coal-powered energy. Our plants don’t contribute to fossil fuel consumption, or increase pollution from coal-burning plants.
Our cannabis is grown without chemical pesticides or fungicides. Natural pest management includes using ladybugs to control aphids and predator spider mites to control mites that can destroy otherwise healthy gardens. We fertilize only with the highest quality and sustainable nutrient that we can source.
We employ ecological soil building techniques like nitrogen-fixing cover crops, so the nutrient-rich soil can be restored and renewed, instead of depleted permanently.
There’s a reason it’s called a temperate rainforest. Graced with an average of 80-100 inches of pure, crystal-clear rain a year, Humboldt County is ideal for harvesting rainwater on a large scale. We capture and store the rain during the wet season and use it to water crops in the dry season. Our farms use specialized tanks and ponds to store the water we need.
This means we don’t have to pump water from springs, creeks and rivers during the dry season. These labor-intensive efforts support the ongoing restoration of the Mattole and Eel Rivers, and allows the salmon populations to flourish after being decimated by logging and illicit cannabis market growers.
Not only do we consider our cannabis Heritage Grown but we also like to consider it rain grown. It's also 100% lab tested guaranteed.

NEW SUSTAINABLE, ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PACKAGING
As we work to cultivate the world’s finest heritage grown cannabis, we’re continually focused on neutralizing our carbon footprint. We’re always looking for ways to improve our sustainability and environmentally friendly position—whether that’s through recycling, reducing energy consumption, composting, or saving large groves of Redwoods.
That’s why our newest product—the Little Nugs Bag—features our most sustainable, environmentally friendly packaging to date: a 100% biodegradable bag that’s landfill friendly, compost friendly, and municipal-green-waste-facility friendly. Conveniently place the empty bags into the trash can or compost pile (not the recycling bin).
