The Farm’s Green Pastures
Last week, I introduced you to The Farm. I was very impressed with their website, and the way that they market themselves in general to Colorado’s cannabis consumers. As I mentioned at the time, I felt that they did a lot on their site to set themselves apart from the competition. Their website was clean, well structured, and full of information about them as a company and their products. Based on what they were presenting, I had high hopes for my first visit, so I went the first chance I had.
First things first, The Farm doesn’t look like your typical corner dispensary. In fact, as I was pulling up, I had to ensure I had the right address in my phone because I felt I was pulling into the lot of a feed store (and being in Boulder, you just never really know…). Even the themed murals on the front of the building help to add to the feed store impression – at first glance, you may miss the pot leaf markings on the cow! It’s not till you get up closer that you see a “cash only” sign across from a lit up Peace sign that you know you’ve found the right place. I have to admit though, I kind of fell in love with the whole vibe as I got out of my car and really took in the mural. While I would not shop somewhere solely because they have a mural on the front of their building, it does add a level of uniqueness that is hard to forget.
Now when you walk in, it’s a bit of a shock to your system honestly. At least it was for me. You walk in from outside seeing the farm mural into a very modern, clean, upscale showroom. Compared to many of the other dispensaries I’ve walked into, The Farm’s definitely has a boutique feeling to it. Everything was neatly displayed, including their glassware housed in several big, well-lit cabinets. The store was pretty busy as I arrived mid-afternoon, but I was still warmly greeted as my ID was checked.
As I waited, I was able to look over the menu so that when my name was called back, I’d be able to make my purchases fairly quickly. Now, I’m not sure how I feel about the dispensaries that have the couches and chairs in a circle that you can use as you wait – I always feel uncomfortable in those seats, like I’m attending some unplanned group therapy session. However, I’m not a huge fan of the one’s that line you up like cattle either. Since I don’t like the campfire setup, I chose to spend my time looking at their glassware selection, which is a well above average collection for a dispensary.
When my name was called, after I think maybe eight to ten minutes, I went back, spoke to a member of the staff who was personable (they weren’t the nicest person I’ve ever worked with, but by no means were they rude or dismissive). I asked a few questions to narrow down between a few different flowers. While the prices were a little higher than what I normally pay, I was happy with both the sativa and indica strains I purchased. Their overall selection of flower is impressive as well. They had at least twenty different strains, which provides for a nice selection to find the right high you’re looking for.
In closing, I am very impressed with not only how The Farm markets themselves, but also with the overall experience I received. This is probably one of the best dispensaries that I’ve been to in the state, and it’s easy to see why it’s a Boulder favorite. The Farm’s pastures are definitely green and their weed is pretty great too!
