Our Team

Duane, CEO

Duane Dennis started a successful cannabis company in Oregon that grew rapidly in popularity and is one of the more popular cannabis companies today. He left that company because he wanted his own farm and thus, control over how his product is grown and wanted to grow year-round, which coming to Puerto Rico has enabled him to do. He discovered the untapped beauty that is Puerto Rico and the endless opportunities it presents for agriculture, whether it be for hemp or fruits and vegetables. 

Allison, COO

Allison worked on a hemp farm in Oregon for 5 years and had her own business selling equipment to circus performers. She has innovated many organic growing methods and techniques for this company during her time here. 

Javier, CFO

Javier is a lawyer by trade and runs a security company. Born and bred in Puerto Rico, Javier has big plans of putting his home on the map and reviving Puerto Rican agriculture. He and Duane met when Duane came to Puerto Rico and they decided to start this company together.
