Big Sur Farmers Association

BSFA is a non-profit organization formed to represent cannabis farmers of the Santa Lucia Region and to identify and promote our region while preserving the legacy farming of Unincorporated Monterey County

Monterey County farmers have historically been pioneers in the cannabis farming industry. The Santa Lucia region has unique landscapes and micro climates that have allowed it to become one of the premiere locations for high quality outdoor cultivation.

For decades Monterey Countys legacy farms have continued to be on the forefront of cultivating high quality cannabis. Our farms span the vast area of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range allowing for the many different microclimates to influence our strains and also allowing enough room for both legacy farms and new cultivation to exist together!

BSFA will lead by example with responsible land stewardship, promoting sustainable farming practices, educating the community, law enforcement and policy makers, help protect the rights of farmers, support commercial businesses, empower both legacy and new cannabis farms, and set the standards for high quality cannabis farming.

By joining the Big Sur Farmer Association you will have a voice as we go through this process of bringing outdoor cultivation back to the forefront of cannabis farming in Monterey County!

BSFA works towards the legalization of outdoor grown cannabis in unincorporated Monterey County.

BSFA holds open forums to allow for all views and ideas to be heard.

Please consider being apart of the legalization of outdoor grown cannabis in unincorporated Monterey County!
