Welcome to our special Elevation cannabis dispensary spotlight on Nevada County’s thriving cannabis farms! Nestled in the heart of California, Nevada County is a hidden gem where cannabis cultivation has blossomed into an art form. We’re immensely proud to be a part of this community. Join us as we take a leisurely stroll through lush green fields and get a feel for the farms that are producing the best cannabis the Golden State has to offer.

Foothill River Farms

Foothill River Farms is where the healing powers of cannabis come to life. Foothill River Farms is a family-run farm founded 15 years ago. They took root in the fertile soil of the Sierra Nevada foothills and the Emerald Triangle. From leading breeders, they inherited unparalleled genetics.


As land stewards, they play an essential role. Each step they take honors their natural environment and local watersheds. But their role isn’t restricted to farming. They are also guardians of the earth, adhering to the best practices for sustainable growth. Moreover, they view themselves as both educators and learners. They share knowledge and eagerly absorb insights from others. Foothill River Farms represents growth—not just for their farm, but in all forms.


The magic of Foothill River Farms lies in their unique approach to cultivation. They don’t chase the highest yields or easiest grows. Instead, they focus on strains with the most therapeutic benefits. Their commitment to whole-plant medicine is evident in every flower they produce – premium quality, lab-tested, and of the finest artisan standards.

Foothill River Farms exemplifies the essence of true artisans and community leaders in the ever-evolving landscape of cannabis cultivation. They display approachable professionalism, setting the standard for the industry. Their commitment to environmental and community stewardship is commendable, impacting their surrounding world.

Moreover, their dedication to producing the cleanest, purest cannabis deserves recognition. This passion stems from more than knowledge — it’s a deep understanding of the plant’s potential to improve well-being. Foothill River Farms embodies the ideals and goals that drive the best in the cannabis industry.

Foothill River Farms are not just growing plants – they’re cultivating a better world. What’s more, during certain times of the year, Foothill River-grown cannabis flower can be found packaged in Elevation Brand flower!

Green Hummingbird Farm isn’t just about growing cannabis. It’s about cultivating a healthier future.

This serves as a badge of honor, showcasing their dedication to safe, effective, and environmentally responsible cannabis cultivation. They believe in transparency and take the time to educate their consumers. This fosters a community of like-minded individuals who share their passion for quality and sustainability.


Speaking of community, Green Hummingbird Farm is a founding member of Sierra Sungrown (a local cooperative of licensed medical cannabis farms in Nevada County). They stand at the forefront of a movement that navigated the challenging path of legalization. This grassroots, self-funded organization highlights the strength and resilience of community-focused agriculture.
