Farming organically and processing naturally is the clear choice for us; our simple methods allow us to create a premium CBD oil while keeping costs down. Our product is made with pure, all natural ingredients and farmed right here in Vermont's scenic Northeast Kingdom. Experience CBD in a whole plant, organic coconut oil extract.
You can expect the same care, quality and service as our friends and family who are among the many people that take our oil.
Located in the rolling hills of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, we chose to farm in Hardwick because the soil here is rich with nutrients, the water is pure and the people have generations of experience working the land. Cold weather and a short growing season make it challenging for plants to thrive here but breeding in such an environment means the hemp plants we end up with are as tough as nails. More importantly, our plants are rich in cannabinoids, have a wide spectrum of terpenes (see the lab results from out finished product), and are compliant with all State and Federal laws.
Arriving in Hardwick in January of 2016, there was little time to prepare the land and produce seeds for the growing season. Winters in this part of Vermont are long, cold and the snow doesn't melt until late in the Spring - but this year was different. The warm weather made for a forgettable ski season, but allowed us to finish building our greenhouse ahead of schedule and to start working our soil as early as possible.
Our first batch of oil was made using the same plants that we flowered for our seed crop that winter. As soon as we had produced our first capsules, people began reaching out to us to try our capsules. Our company has come a long way so far, and a large part of this is due to the support and the grassroots spreading of awareness about our product and about CBD in general. There is still far to go, but we are honored to be among the leaders of Vermont's new hemp economy - one which has potential to create countless new jobs for the state.
After growing up in the same community in southern NY, where their families still live today, Alejandro and Jacob reunited to farm hemp and produce CBD products from Northern Vermont. This was a natural fit as the two of them each had spent their adult lives in Vermont, shared a passion for the hemp plant, and bring with them a wide range of unique skills.
After spending a year as Chief Agricultural Officer at one of the largest CBD producing hemp farms in the United States, Alejandro Bergad decided to bring his vast knowledge of farming to the northeast. An instrument rated pilot, Mr. Bergad's attention to detail carries through in all that he does; as a farmer, as an entrepreneur, a pilot and as an avid fly fisher.
Mr. Bergad has an unrivaled understanding of efficient, high yield farming techniques derived from years of homesteading in northern Vermont. His passion for getting things done efficiently has led him to develop organic farming methods that provide a distinct advantage to our farm. We produce more CBD per acre, more efficiently, than anyone else in the country.
Prior to Sunsoil, Jacob built an environmentally friendly painting and cleaning company in Burlington, VT. This business was started while in school at the University of Vermont, and he spent several years after graduation operating the company before it was time for a new adventure. He brings years of experience in brand development and customer service.
