Our Family, Our Farm
Our 60 acres of organic farmland in Longmont, Colorado isn't the biggest farm in the country, and we like it that way. Having a small farm allows us to put extra care into everything we do! Organic farming starts with the soil and that is a year-round commitment.
We do not use any pesticides or herbicides and are very strict when it comes to keeping up with our organic farming methods. We make sure that our soil is in pristine condition before we put plants in the ground. In return, this allows our hemp to flourish due to the nutrient-packed soil that has been built up throughout the year.
We also practice several traditional, sustainable farming methods, like hemp-centric crop rotation and cover cropping, to improve and build up our soil. Processes like these help the soil’s ability to absorb water and store other nutrients needed to grow healthy crops. It also requires that the soil be free from harmful contaminants and enriched to ensure plants can naturally fend off pests. This is especially vital for hemp, which is a prodigious soil remediator with a deep root system.
Finally, we test all our equipment to make sure the seeds and seedlings go in the ground with care, which is crucial to a healthy growth cycle. We put so much attention into our farm, our soil, and our cultivar genetics, and it is no different when it comes time to harvest.
At Bloom Farms, we hand trim the majority of our crop. Having a smaller, boutique farm gives us the advantage of providing more care to each plant and harvesting is no exception. Hand harvesting and drying allows us to maintain maximum outputs for each plant.
