41,000 Sq Ft Production Facility on 7 Acres of Land
With California being the largest medical cannabis market in the United States, we will begin capturing our share of the high end California market with our first phase driven out of a 41,000 square foot facility on 7 Acres of land in Desert Hot Springs, CA. We will focus on the requirements of meeting patient demands,and providing safe and clean end products with production stability. In respect to these goals, Finch & Sons has designed a facility that will house a proven production model as well as a state of the art extraction facility combining carbon dioxide, hydrocarbon, and steam-distillation technologies.
One key component is our land that we have chosen for development. Finch & Sons has placed a 7 acre parcel of land into escrow which provides all the critical bases and many extra benefits for our cultivation and extraction production. It has the utilities, including power, required to feed our demands along with space to expand into the future. The external footprint, the interior design, and the equipment/supply choices have all been defined as to maximize the effectiveness of the Finch & Sons team to meet the stated goals and requirements above.
