Jennifer Ayotte, cannabis pioneer, has been selected for an international mastercourse. To be clear, Ayotte is a cannabis cultivation manager who happens to be a woman, rather than the alternative.
Ayotte came obtusely to cannabis’s contemporary green gold rush, following husband Jeff’s westward quest to Boone, Colorado to design a visionary production facility combining smart-technology automation with resource efficiency and sustainability. Her initial foray into agronomy was driven by crop issues jointly threatening harvest and the Ayotte family’s financial commitment, met initially by a patronizing attitude containing more than a hint of ‘isn’t that cute.’ Jennifer’s interim performance exceeded that of the initial and two subsequent contracted growers, leading to official recognition of fait accompli.
“I hate ‘agronomist’, hate ‘master grower’, hate titles,” she mused, adding with a smile, “let’s do cultivation manager.”
Post Boone, Ayotte has been at the forefront of diverse global cannabis-industry progress including a consultation in Hawaii’s particularly challenging growth environment, overseen development of a full grow in Switzerland, and mapped out and engineered a 165-hectare German hemp production operation from seeding through harvest and drying, as well as creating integrated Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for each unique facility, reflective of their specific international jurisdictions. Subsequently, she accepted the supervisory position at Wayland’s Langton-area purpose-built cannabis production facility, where to date, Ayotte has more than tripled previous production benchmarks while also creating her fifth set of tailor-made SOP.
