Meristem Farms breeds and cultivates hemp varieties for holistic wellness products that are rich in cannabidiol (CBD) and other beneficial, non-intoxicating cannabinoids. We grow them at our organic indoor/outdoor farm on 46 acres in Lamoille County, Vermont, using carefully selected cultivars to produce oils that feature the unique biochemical profiles of each individual variety. We are developing an energy-efficient, data-driven indoor model to deliver stable year-round production and support breeding and crop improvement, which in turn maximizes the value of larger-scale outdoor harvests. We are committed to the highest standards of sustainability and organic certification, both indoors and out.

We are a woman-owned company of learners, in service to customers and partners who seek to realize the promise of this amazing plant to heal ourselves and our world.
