LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT. Despite the warnings of climate change, indoor cannabis cultivation has been estimated to use 1% of the nation’s power. Puffin Farm uses at least 90% less electricity than indoor farms!
Puffin plants receive full-spectrum sunlight allowing for the biosynthesis of a complex array of phytoconstituents. They receive not only sunlight but starlight, moonlight, and the earth’s energy array through their roots. We use a small amount of electricity to sustain our nursery, and for nor some of our greenhouse crops are supplemented with artificial light for part of the year.
Our mission is to produce, process and curate the most aromatic and clean cannabis and concentrates, as mother nature intended; sungrown, minimally processed, using organic and sustainable methods that aid in the fight against global warming. We utilize age old wisdom as well as cutting edge technology to bring you the finest, purest and most natural cannabis products attainable.
The Founders at Puffin Farm are life long cannabis connoisseurs, medical cannabis patients, and care providers. When cannabis became legal in Washington state, they decided to bring the plant out of the basement, closet and warehouse into the light of the sun.
Puffin Farm is a family owned and operated business. Ben and Jade are the married couple behind the day to day operations of the farm. Cyrena is Jade’s sister and Cliff their uncle both run the iconic Seattle Glassblowing Studio in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood.
Puffin Farm’s high-quality weed is in part made possible by one of the first decisions the company made: its Yakima River location. Terroir is a really important concept that people are just starting to consider when it comes to cannabis. It’s what gives wines produced on different estates from the same genetic stock their unique characteristics.
Terroir is a combination of all of the environmental factors that contribute to a crop. It includes things such as elevation, air quality, the UV light that comes to your location, geography, local micro-climate, soil characteristics, mineral composition and cultivation practices. Terroir affects what flavors are expressed, the concentrations of cannabinoids and, to some extent, the ratios.
Puffin’s Ellensburg terroir is stellar and includes a dry, hot summer, good elevation, river frontage and a lot of wind, which definitely adds something to the phenotypic expression of our crop and helps create Puffin’s aromatic and tasty flower.
