Expert Cannabis Cultivation
About Beija Flor
Like many good stories, ours starts with a boy who loves the land...
Our founder grew up in Napa Valley, the 5th generation in a California-based agricultural family. Possessed with a green thumb, his farming education started early in the family vineyard.
Driven by equal parts creativity, defiant streak, and an early education from his Southern Humboldt-based uncle, he cultivated his first cannabis plant at age 13. In his 20’s he branched out to launch a fully producing farm on his family’s land in Mendocino, Beija Flor. We introduced our first crop in 2003. Through connections with farmers and breeders in the area, we continue to work to strengthen the world-class traditions of cannabis farms in the Emerald Triangle.
Beija Flor means ‘to kiss the flower’ or translates literally to ‘hummingbird’. Both interpretations reflect our obsession with the balance and delicateness of nature and desire to create an extraordinary experience.
Our process is driven by a sensitive observation of botanical systems, soil, and the environment and a focus on preservation of the land and carbon sequestration. Our ultimate goal is to achieve the simple harmony between the earth and our crops that results in products that are unique, balanced, and enjoyable, with compassion and protection for the land we call home.
