Halifax: Proposed Marijuana Cultivation Site on Haseotes Farm

Part of the 2,000 acres of land from the Haseotes family farm that extends to River Street in Halifax may soon be home to a marijuana cultivation facility.

The marijuana cultivation company looking to set up shop is called Four Daughters Compassionate Care. Its CEO, Brian Striar, says the facility could make between $20-30 million in profits a year, which could mean a hefty yearly bonus for the town of Halifax.

“We believe Halifax’s annual bonus can total somewhere in the neighborhood of $600,000 to $1 million, once we’re up and running,” says Striar.

Striar also emphasizes that the marijuana greenhouse would NOT be a dispensary.

“It’s cultivation only, and processing of the plant-taking it off of the stems, packaging it up into containers and then moving it off-site to dispensaries.”

Striar hopes the facility will be up and running by the summer of 2019. He also hopes to have a staff made entirely out of Halifax residents.

“It’s important when we come into a community to get the residents involved, and have them participate in what we’re trying to do here. We think it’d make sense to have people living nearby the facility that work there. It’s a win-win for everybody.”

Halifax Selectmen Chair Tom Millias is so far impressed with the company’s plan.

“We did pass an article allowing for it, and to capture a fee for it. It’s zoned properly. Everything is pretty much in place, as long as the other things can be confirmed—that they are compliant with Conservation and the Planning Board. It’s quite doable,” says Millias.

More public meetings on the proposed marijuana greenhouse will be announced in the new year.
