SUSTAINABLY SUNGROWN.

PUFFIN FARM

Sunshine Makes Our Buds Divine


CLEAN & GREEN

Clean Green Certified™

Federal law regulates the use of the word "organic," and the USDA does not recognize cannabis cultivation as a legitimate agricultural. Consumer desire for a higher quality product created a need in the cannabis industry for third-party certifiers.

Clean Green Certified™ applies organic standards to cannabis production and certifies farmers and crops that uphold those standards. Our dedication to sustainable sungrown methods and absence of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides makes Puffin a Clean Green Certified™ Farm.

Ecologically Sustainable

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 Story

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.

TERRIOR, TERRIOR, TERRIOR

It's all about the Yakima River.

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.

The Six 'P's of Puffin

Each step of our process is handled with care.

Plants

Puffin Farm possesses a unique genetic library of strains selected from seed for terpene profile and effect. In addition to high terpene THC strains, we also grow high CBD strains. We use organically certified fertilizers & amendments, & integrated pest management techniques with an active program to build our soil through the use of cover crops, compost and biochar. Our waste is made into compost & returned to the soil to further increase its fertility.

Power

Sunshine makes our plants happy and healthy, while bathed in the open rays of solar power reducing our carbon footprint. In the age of global warming, excessive power use is something to avoid. Indoor cannabis cultivation has an enormous carbon footprint that is totally unnecessary since cannabis loves to grow in the sun. Natural sunlight also allows the plant to achieve its fullest potential spectrum of phytoconstituents to bring you the herb as nature intended it.
