Who is a California Small Farmer?
The average SFA member is a person working to take care of their family, send kids to school and pay their mortgage. They’re hard working people that contribute to their communities. The SFA has over 400 farmer and patient members across California ranging from members who have been farming for over 40 years, to newcomers that have a passion not only for Medical Cannabis farming but for working the soil and providing food and medicine for their family and friends. We all share the common goals of being not only ecologically sustainable but also economically sustainable.
The average SFA member is your neighbor, your fellow PTA member, your volunteer firefighter, teachers, lawyers, hippies, yuppies, business owners and people you run into everyday.
