about the farm
Symponia Farms is driven by a mission of purpose, derived out of compassion. Symponia means compassionate in ancient Greek and we live this mission every day. A mission to provide a safer, more natural, and ultimately better alternative to prescription medications is what led a team of service-disabled Veterans to start our farm.
To us, this mission means doing things differently. That’s why we carefully manage and operate every aspect of our operations, from growing, to processing, to product design, to provisioning. We work with purpose to consistently provide the highest quality products that our patients and customers need and have come to expect. To us, it’s about more.
Symponia Farms is more than a company looking to cash in on a new, growing industry and simply make a dollar. Symponia Farms is about more.
We’re about building a community and a future on a foundation of service and excellence. We’re about a call and a commitment to serve people. We’re about serving patients in need with the highest quality, chemical-free natural medicine they deserve. We’re about turning unproductive, blighted land into a community resource that provides jobs, taxes, and fees.
If you care about doing business with people who strive for excellence in all they do – people who are about more than a short-term gain today – then you’ve landed in the right place.
Symponia Farms is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business. A desire to serve and a willingness to answer a call to action is part of what defines us. These defining characteristics were behind the drive to clean up a blighted and tax burdensome old junkyard and turn it into our high tech, custom-built, indoor grow, processing, and provisioning facility. It is the character and core values that lie behind our desire to serve our patients, customers, and community in a way that builds up and supports all of those that we have the honor of working for and with.
