OUR MISSION Develop and preserve sustainable sun grown farming methods to produce the highest quality organic CBD cannabis with a resolute commitment to environmental and social responsibility.
WE BELIEVE At East Fork, we are more than growers; we are cultivators. We look beyond our plants and work to create a brand that expounds on ideas and cultivates an educated community.
We are devoted to the development and preservation of sun grown cannabis and believe that sustainable farming methods produce superior holistic medicine. Our desire to provide Oregonians with a superior plant-based medicine drives our selection of cultivars, or cannabis strains, that are high in CBD.
It’s our belief that CDB cultivars have the power to heal and bring relief to those in need. Rooted in a commitment to the environmental and social responsibility we take great pride in the processes and practices implemented on our farm.
OUR GROW PHILOSOPHY The small town of Takilma is located in Southern Oregon, between the pristine waters of the East Fork of the Illinois River and the Siskiyou Wilderness—the heart of the world’s best outdoor cannabis growth environment.
Here, on a small family farm, is where all our cannabis is organically grown. As an OLCC-licensed and Clean Green Certified farm, we create a balanced and healthy ecosystem by caring for the soil, the water, the air, and we introduce plant partners for optimal symbiosis. We strive to have a positive impact on the environment in which we live and grow, the people in our community, and the people who rely on our products.
ORIGIN STORY Starting out, we (Nathan and Aaron Howard) had one goal in mind: grow a superior plant medicine to help relieve our oldest brother and his range of medical conditions. It was witnessing the positive effects of high-CBD cultivars that drove our desire to expand so that we could provide all Oregonians with the same superior medicine—and in turn to purchase East Fork Ranch. Our commitment to both community and high-CBD cultivars has given us a sense of place and pride.
WHY CBD From the first-hand experience to recent findings in the medical field, CBD has proven itself a safe, natural and truly effective remedy for ailments of the body. Understanding how CBD affects the brain and body will not only better your understanding of your experience, but will help you educate others.
TERROIR A term typically associated with the wine industry, terroir refers to the place-based environmental factors—such as soil, water, and climate—that combine to give distinct characteristics. It’s terroir that enables identical cannabis cultivars to be grown in different regions and produce distinct smell, taste, and effects. Oregon’s Illinois Valley, coupled with our sustainable farming practices and meticulous drying and curing methods, give our cultivars their unique and unparalleled qualities.
