48North Partners with The New Farm and Farms for Change in Celebration and Support of Sustainable and Organic Farming

Published: June 17, 2019

48North Cannabis Corp. has partnered with The New Farm and Farms for Change in support of Community Food Centres Canada, an organization focused on increasing access to healthy organic food, and organic farms across Canada. 48North and The New Farm are steadfast in their commitment to promoting environmental stewardship. Both organizations share a belief that sustainable, profitable farms are the foundation of healthy communities, and that local, organic agricultural products should be available to everyone.

In May, 48North received its outdoor cultivation licence from Health Canada for its 100-acre (3.7-million-square-feet of cultivation space) organic farm (“Good Farm”), located in Brant County, Ont. With this licence, Good Farm will become one of the largest ever licensed cannabis operations in the world. As the industry leader in outdoor cannabis cultivation — the most environmentally friendly and cost-effective means of cannabis production — 48North’s Good Farm is at the forefront of sustainable and organic cannabis production.

“We are so excited to announce 48North’s partnership with Farms for Change. There are a number of natural synergies between their certified organic family farm and our Good Farm. Most importantly, our mutual commitment to organic, sustainable farming and a desire to support our local communities and spur local job creation,” said Jeannette VanderMarel, co-CEO of 48North.

The New Farm holds a fundraiser every summer that benefits Farms for Change. In 2018, the event raised more than $150,000. This year, 48North has partnered with the organization in support of their mission and event.
