US (NY): Produce farm starts cannabis production

Main Street Farms — known around Cortland County for their fresh, local produce — is hoping to lead the way for a new cannabis revolution.

The company, which currently sells hemp and CBD products under the Head + Heal brand, was awarded one of the first 52 adult-use cannabis conditional cultivator licenses in April. Karli Miller-Hornick, the CEO of Head + Heal and the director of operations at Main Street Farms, said the news was “incredibly exciting.” The local farm was the only one in Cortland County so far to receive such a license.

The approved licenses are from a pool of more than 150 that have been submitted to the New York State Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) following the March 15 opening of the online application portal. The OCM will continue to review applications on a rolling basis and will work to get them to the board for approval as soon as possible. 

“We will be growing cannabis this year,” Miller-Hornick said. “We also have an extraction facility in Cortland, so we’ll also be making wellness products, mostly tinctures, topicals, and maybe some gummies.”
