In 2010, Dutch Valley Farms founder, Anthony Palacio’s family’s world was turned upside down when a neurologist uttered words that no parents hope to hear: “Your son is on the autism spectrum.” Tired of sleepless nights and the frustrations that come with seeing your child suffer, Anthony and his partner started to research tools that could help their son’s quality of life. One of the tools that seemed the most promising: CANNABIS!
After countless hours of learning and exploring the benefits of this amazing plant, Anthony, like many parents of children with disabilities, came to the realization that without more research, this remarkable tool couldn’t reach its full potential. Anthony has been on a mission since to grow the best cannabis and to advocate for research on how cannabis can help people with disabilities. Dutch Valley Farms was born from this mission and they are setting an example for what the sustainable, craft cannabis industry should look like everywhere.
“My family and what we have created here…. it is special. I have always believed it is best to go into battle with people you trust and we have been through Fires, Ice Storms, the pandemic and other issues together. We made it past the other side and we are stronger because of that. I think the Sky is the limit.” – Anthony Palacio, COO and owner of Dutch Valley Farms and Permaculture Solutions
Honoring the land they reside on, Dutch Valley uses natural products, OMRI listed fertilizers, beneficial fungus, microbes and natural predatory insects for IPMS and sustainable farming practices to ensure their flower is free of toxins or chemicals, for both the consumer and the environment. Their sister brand, Permaculture Solutions, offers top quality rosin, bubble hash and soon a new edible line.
Dutch Valley Cannabis is so on the cutting edge of sustainability that they even capture all rain storm water run off from the facility as well as the A/C and dehumidifier systems. In fact, the capture is large enough to water the entire grow operation that they bypass the need to pull from the local watershed. It doesn’t stop there, either! They capture the nutrient wastewater and use it to fertilize a vegetable garden.
BELIEVE US when we tell you that this flower is DANK, sustainable, ethical and simply beautiful…the Tokeativity HQ Team did a visit to Dutch Valley Farms and we saw it with our own eyes! They even play music to their plants to keep the vibes high!
