Operating as Bob’s Better Buds, Ritchie is one of the few licence holders in Canada with an indoor and outdoor operation on one site under one licence. His first crop was an outdoor crop harvested last October, followed by his first indoor crop started in mid-December.

Denis Gagnon has been growing flowers and vegetables and raising livestock on his farm near Merrickville Ontario for over thirty years, selling at farmers markets, CSAs and his farm gate stand.
