Mer·i·stem (n): Plant tissue, found at the tips of roots and shoots, where cells multiply to foster and differentiate growth.
Meristem is a Vermont-based producer and distributor of high-quality hemp crops and products. We foster and differentiate growth in our industry to deliver on the promise of hemp for prosperous communities, resilient economies and healthy landscapes through equitable value chains, the ancient legacy of an extraordinary plant, and the dirt-packed intuition of farmers who turn meristems into marvels.
In an industry becoming rapidly dominated by distinctions without difference, we seek to offer quality- and sustainability-conscious consumers a line of distinctive and holistic products that are more beneficial for their health and for the health of the communities and landscapes that bring it to market.
WHAT WE DO
Meristem supplies hemp plants and crops for holistic products that are rich in cannabidiol and other beneficial, non-intoxicating cannabinoids. We grow them at organic farms in Lamoille County and Chittenden County, Vermont, and with partner farms using specially bred cultivars to produce oils that feature the unique biochemical profiles of each individual variety.
In addition to farming and distributing organic hemp products, we also distribute premium seeds and clean-stock clones, we provide consulting services in regulatory compliance and capacity-building, and we serve our broader industry through policy leadership and public-private partnerships to build equity and effective governance throughout the hemp value chain.
We are a family-owned business with a lifelong commitment to caring for the landscape and the communities dependent on its health and productivity. We are a company of learners, in service to customers and partners who seek to realize the promise of this amazing plant to heal ourselves and our world. The cure for what ails us doesn’t come in a box, but some good medicine just might help!
