Meet the Holdens

The Holden family has been in Oregon for multiple generations. As a family, we believe in the attributes that make Oregon such a wonderful place: our progressive nature, our live and let live relationships with our neighbors, and a healthy dose of good old fashioned family values. We believe in supporting the community, celebrating diversity in all its forms, and feel responsible to help make the world a better place than we found it. The hemp CBD revolution is fundamentally changing the way we see our health, wellness, and sustainability. The whole Holden Family is committed to being your resource for truthful, up-to-date information, as well as high-quality products that we have tested so you can trust them for yourself and your pets.

From our family to yours, thank you for visiting Holden Farms.
