Meet Our New Partner in Weed Tours, Tall Tree Society
As you drive on to Tall Tree’s farm, and head past bucolic vineyards up the dirt road past other Emerald Triangle hippie farms, over the livestock gate and up the rise, you get an immediate feeling of connection to the flower children pioneers of the back to the land movement. You’re greeted by a funky artsy cedar shingled house with odd shaped windows that looks like it belongs to a hippie commune, dwarfed by an enormous giant redwood tree. Behind the house you get an amazing view of Redwood Valley and the mountains that surround it, with the greenhouses where Tall Tree Society grows their incredible artisanal weed just down the hill. Of all the Mendocino farms we’ve brought guests to on our cannabis farm tours, this is the most evocative of California’s rich cannabis culture and story.
We got to take in this incredible view from the deck behind the house, where Tall Tree Society plans to hold their weed tastings, as we sat in the warm Mendocino sun imbibing a delicious Papaya Sorbet, one of Tall Tree’s unique genetics – an intensely flavorful and potent organic weed strain that any cannasseur, cronisseur, or ganjier would go crazy for.
Tall Trees Society is dedicated to sustainable regenerative farming, using methods like companion planting, cover cropping, beneficial insects for pest control, sourcing farm materials locally, and raising animals on the farm for a natural source of fertilizer. They also run a certified organic vegetable farm on the premises as well. Shane, the owner of the farm, has always been a conservationist at heart, and has been outdoorsy all his life, exploring the woods since he was a kid, and hosting white water rafting tours as a young adult. His parents are both biologists, so he’s always seen the ecosystem as one whole organism.
The rich, loamy soil from the Russian River is ideal for growing all manner of top quality crops, and the folks at Tall Tree Society are the first people to farm this land, so the rich virgin soil is free from any pesticides or fertilizers, and their holistic approach to farming in harmony with the environment really comes through in the rich flavors of their cannabis. You can taste it in the smoke. You can see it in the deep green lushness of the plants. You can smell it in the air.
Besides being phenomenal weed farmers, Tall Tree Society is also very enthusiastic about cannabis tourism. Shane is looking forward to giving visitors personalized 420 tours of his farm, nursery, hash making facilities, and of course, gift shop. He also told us that many of the folks that reside on the farm are accomplished cooks, and they’ve had epicurean events where they’ve roasted whole pigs for various feasts, concerts and other events.
We look forward to sharing Tall Tree Society with our weed tour guests this year.
