DFG originally began back in Oregon, in the Willamette valley, as a project to create outdoor, mold hardy, fast finishing, exquisite smoking, top shelf genetics that would perform in the harsh climate of Oregon as well as in both dialed in, and wildly erratic, grow rooms. We built our reputation on consistently providing genetics that anyone – from new growers, to the seasoned pro, could run and have great success and bountiful harvests of the highest caliber. We also very much believe, and witness, the healing powers of this beautiful plant, so many of our strains are projects to bring healing and peace from pain, stress, anxiety, and medical conditions.
We are a husband and wife team and run DFG together to the best of our abilities, while constantly attempting to push the envelope and further cannabis genetics. We are a small medical farm, driven by passion and a dedication to the beauty and healing powers of the cannabis plant. We do not have investors to answer to, so our focus is on you- the grower and smoker. DFG has recently relocated over to Puna district on the Big Island of Hawaii, with the purpose of being able to run more projects a year, while also creating the hardiest, and most diverse genetics possible. Hawaii has an incredibly special, albeit challenging, climate to grow in. We believe that lines created here, under the sun, in the extreme humidity, and with extreme pest and pathogen presence, will help us to push the envelope even further. Our values in this move have not changed, rather, the move has allowed us to embrace sustainability and our core values even harder. Our new farm is off grid, solar powered, harvests rainwater, and will be fully utilizing permaculture-based techniques. Hawaii’s climate allows for high levels of biomass to be cycled, and a vast array of plants for ferment to be grown, as well as providing all the tools mother nature has provided. The biggest tool in the arsenal being Korean natural farming. We will be able to grow most of our inputs for fertilization and pest management, allow us to proudly have beyond organic flower and seeds of the highest quality.
The last part of the move was also to be able to grow, catalog, preserve, and share rare, vanishing, and truly special heirloom, sativa, and landraces. Governments, and many factors really, are eroding many genetics from all over the world, and we feel its part of our duty to the plant to do what we can to save these special plants for future generations. We also will be conducting some fun and unique mash ups between modern and heirloom, to chase unique terpene profiles, effects, and hybrids.
