About Aster Farms
Aster Farms is a sustainable cannabis company from Northern California. Founded in 2018, Aster was born from three generations of cannabis knowledge and a dedication to intentionality, transparency and organic practices. We grow craft cannabis the way it was meant to be grown: outdoors, under the sun, moon and stars. We believe that cannabis fits into a healthy, active lifestyle and are dedicated to providing clean cannabis for a clean high. That starts with responsible farming, live-soil and organic inputs, letting nature do the work. Whether you’re consuming cannabis for medicinal or recreational purposes, we believe you should be able to trust what you’re putting in your body and who made it. At Aster Farms we don’t just care about our plants and the planet, we care about our community. We are active in the fight for social justice in the cannabis industry, supporting the equity community, mentoring and contributing resources as well as practicing those very ethos inside our company beginning with our hiring practices. We are thankful for you joining us in this big adventure. See you out there.
