Terry Sardinas : I’m a third-generation farmer and a first-generation American. I grew up helping my dad with his guava farm, growing it from a local produce farm to the nation’s only supplier of guavas. While that was an incredible time and an exceptional experience with my family, it also showed me the dark side of agriculture. I was exposed to the dangers that conventional cultivation presents to the health of our planet and the health of the folks who grow and consume traditional produce. That led me to look for another way as my partner, Manny, and I set out to establish our farm.
Tia (AskGrowers) : Tell us how you started Bird Valley Organics?
Terry : In 2011, I moved across the country from Florida to Oakland with my partner, Manny. We set out to become cannabis cultivators, so we packed up a Penske truck with our belongings, our ferrets, and our dogs and drove to California. The day after we arrived, we started classes at Oaksterdam University.
Fast-forward a few years. We were growing Cannabis and making cannabis oils that were way more popular than we anticipated............
