Santa Fe Farms

The story of Santa Fe Farms lies deep within the soil of New Mexico. Santa Fe Farms combines the rich history of the New Mexico people (the State’s greatest resource), their long and continuous relationship to the land, and the dynamic properties of hemp into a single enterprise to create a dynamic business enterprise -- one that will be sustainable, profitable and draw from all the resources that New Mexico has to offer. Cultivated by multi-generational local farmers and overseen by individuals with decades of experience in business, health, agricultural extraction and production, our wide range of hemp-derived products will reflect the richness and breadth of the American experience. With abundant farmland and the most efficient processing, extraction and manufacturing processes, our footprint will be far reaching including beyond America’s borders.

SFF has positioned itself to become a preeminent local (New Mexico), national and international leader in the production, extraction, manufacturing, and distribution of THC free hemp-based phyto-cannabinoids. In addition, we are creating custom blended cannabinoid products for personal as well as medical/wellness use. Furthermore, by capturing the full range of “green”byproducts throughout our cultivating, processing and extraction processes, we are poised to become leaders in environmental sustainability within the Hemp ecosystem leaving a negative carbon footprint.  From a modest state with a modest plan will come something that will, we hope and expect, literally transform the world --an “alchemy of enterprise”. All the elements are here, and Santa Fe Farms has synergistically put together the people, the land and the Hemp plant to create great magic. Our future is as rich as our New Mexican soil.
