MEET OBELISK FARM FAMILY

We're Andris, Débora, Gabriela, and Fredis—the hearts and hands behind Obelisk Farm. In our daily endeavors, each of us plays a vital role, contributing to the transformative essence of the farm. Our shared vision imagines a future where humanity harmoniously coexists with nature. This vision unfolds in the simple yet profound acts of cultivating hemp, producing hemp products showcased in our online and farm store, warmly guiding our visitors, actively hosting and participating in events, and breathing life into our cherished hemp gatherings.

MISSION AND VISION

As a small family farm, our mission revolves around cultivating hemp with dedication, producing quality products, and passionately educating others about the benefits of this extraordinary plant.

Beyond being a farm, we invite locals, travelers, food enthusiasts, and fellow hemp lovers to join our agri-tourism journey. Every year, our doors open to welcome a diverse community that shares our passion.

In the past years, we've poured our hearts into restoring farm buildings, giving them new life as a hemp school, museum, and shop. These spaces have become hubs of learning, showcasing the rich history of hemp. From engaging hemp tours to educational courses, we're here to celebrate the vibrant life of hemp—both within the farm's embrace and beyond.

OUR JOURNEY

Where it all began

We started the farm in 2017, and since then we've dedicated our lives to growing, and creating with hemp while educating others about the uses and benefits of the hemp plant. Nestled in the eastern part of Latvia, in the Latgale region, our farm is bursting with hemp that reflects our intention of living a life connected with nature.  At a point in our lives, we felt a need to be more connected to nature. So in, 2014, our family left the hustle of city life in London and move to a small village called Obeliškas. We were pursuing a slower, simpler life that would connect us with nature every day.

Growing for the future

Wondering what we could do on our land, we come across an extraordinary plant: hemp. The first seeds were sown in 2016, and after many trials and errors, we became confident enough to grow and produce hemp products. Soon, word got out about our hemp farm, and people we didn’t yet know began asking if they could order our products and visit our farm. From that moment, we felt that we had found our calling. We wanted to devote ourselves to growing hemp because we believe we have a responsibility to protect Mother Earth by growing her most sustainable plant to help create a better now and tomorrow.‍

From farm to flourish

What started as a small hemp farm has flourished into a blossoming business, specializing in producing wholesome hemp products and giving others the tools and information they need about industrial hemp. Discovering the way as we go, we’re letting hemp lead in all that we do. In this way of thinking, the plant is both teacher and co-conspirator in a shift of consciousness toward wonder, abundance, and reciprocity. It's changeful, but we love that. 

Looking forward

Every day, we're reminded of why we've started the farm: to live connected to nature and create hemp products while educating others about hemp. With many years of hemp farming behind our family, we hope our long-standing commitment to doing what's right for the land and people allows us to do what we love for generations to come. Currently dividing our lives between Latvia and Portugal, we strive to embody our vision of sustainable living in two beautiful corners of the world.
