Unalome Hemp is looking for talent/creative partnerships with a solid, professional technician to set up and and operate an on-site extraction lab for the purposes of vertically processing our hemp, as well as importing outside product extraction projects in the interims.
Cultivation is where I hang my hat, so finding someone self-sufficient enough to run their extract side of things, but who can also work symbiotically and in tandem with us to create the foundation of a solid team, is key. I’ve personally been in cannabis production for twenty years and have built three successful farms from the ground up. Our small team works hard, but we have fun, love what we do, and we know what it means to consider the crew family. We aim to create a craft, family-owned, small farm that is focused on not sacrificing quality while scaling to deliver on commercial scale.
The facility is located on 23 acres just outside town on the McKenzie River. It has phase 3 power, EFU zoning, and it is security fenced/gated and digital surveillance-equipped. We are aiming for organic indoor, greenhouse, and field production, with an emphasis on smokeable flower. We have our own large drying/processing/secure storage facility. Complete vertical integration is the goal. A recreational license is very likely possibility in the future.
We have a beautiful old barn, very solidly built and really just needing the interior finished, that we are hoping to renovate, now we just need the right extraction artist to make it home. Our thoughts are that use of this facility would be rent-free, and I’m totally open to financing the materials and labor toward the barn renovation, potentially as specicified by the technician we seek, to get the space up to lab standards. When we are not processing material from the farm, which we’d compensate for, what is done with the lab -as long as it is safe, professional, and within legal constraints- is open to any extraction pursuit. We are also interested in potentially helping finance the acquisition of bulk raw material for processing, but we ask that equipment be in your possession, since we cannot be liable for its use if we aren’t overseeing and operating it. In all likelihood that’s 8 months of the year that the lab would be operational space to do with as you please, with no rent, at an amazing location, working alongside a dedicated and experienced farm crew that is well-loved by everyone we do business with.
Ideally, lab equipment, expertise, business and leadership skills, and a healthy degree of financial independence come with the right applicant. With a proper vetting period we could look at the possibilities beyond co-op’ing and begin to look at partnership possibilities. We know we aren’t describing just anybody, but for the right person it could be a great opportunity, so we’re putting it out there with high hopes.
