we're on a mission to help people & our planet feel better by practicing regenerative agriculture & producing whole plant medicine.
cannabis is medicine. food is medicine. both should be grown to heal people & the planet
Our story begins with 0ur co-founders, Terry Sardinas & Manny Alvarez. As third-generation farmers & first-generation Americans, Manny & Terry were inspired by California's growing cannabis medicine movement. In 2011, they packed their bags & moved from Miami, Florida to Oakland, California to learn from expert cultivators and wellness leaders.
Six years later, after the end of prohibition in California, Manny & Terry founded Bird Valley Organics to advance regenerative practices in cannabis cultivation, create a community of like-minded farmers, & produce healing cannabis medicine.
Today, Bird Valley Organics is a hügelkultur cannabis farm nestled in Watsonville's Pajaro Valley. We produce a line of whole plant full spectrum oils. We partner with like-minded farms to bring regenerative cannabis medicine to help people throughout California feel better.
