Urban Farms for Life
So ask yourself; why are Urban Farming opportunities so important to us right now?
And the answers are; Cannabis laws have changed. Opinions have changed. Environmental issues play an increasing important role in our lives. People need jobs and homes. We are experiencing an opiate epidemic of massive proportions. Our veterans and minority communities are being left out of the dialogue when it comes to how they might participate in an emerging legal cannabis industry. Diet related disease plays an increasingly significant roll in our lives...
With all of the issues that need to be addressed, the Real Question we should be asking is;
IF CANNABIS HAS EVER BEEN PART OF THE PROBLEM THAN WHY SHOULDN'T IT BE PART OF THE SOLUTION?
151 Farmers: Our Mission
151 Farms are economically self sufficient and secure in their operations.
151 Farms are committed to improving the quality of life and advancing the economic development of our communities.
151 Farms employs ecologically responsible and sustainable crop cultivation techniques to provide our communities with locally grown, fresh crops with the least carbon footprint.
151 Farms integrates traditional food crops, hops and Secured Medical Cannabis Cultivation.
151 Farms do NOT cultivate cannabis for the recreational market.
151 Farms are NOT Marijuana Dispensaries however we do believe that preferential consideration for such licensing should be given to those who actually live in the communities. We believe Urban Farming is a way for members of the cannabis industry to give back to the communities they are given the privilege to serve.
151 Farmers pledge to work with local and state governments on the development of laws and ordinances that create jobs and economic opportunities within those communities where previous drug policies have historically had a disproportionately harsh effect.
In many areas water is already in limited supply and being rationed. These restrictions will affect everyone including those farmers who grow our food. With less water available and all the other rising costs they face, we believe a greater number of food crop farmers will look to cannabis as a way to turn a profit in these increasingly difficult market conditions.
Unless solutions can be found, the reality is we will ALL be seeing higher food prices and supply shortages within the foreseeable future. 151 Farmers believe that intelligent Urban Farming laws and regulations render this scenario completely unacceptable and avoidable.
151 Farmers believe that the emerging regulated cannabis industry should not contribute to ANY of the problems being described here. Therefore it is vital that our elected officials realize that the time to take action to avoid these conditions is now!
151 Farms exist to help shape the future of that public/private mission.
Here is where we will post any relevant News, Laws or Regulations that we believe will have an effect on our mission as 151 Farmers and those customers who rely on our products and services.

Our philosophy on promoting the integration of Secured Medical Cannabis Cultivation within these Urban Farms, has always been to make the farms economically viable.
