A Family Farming Legacy
Putting A Stamp on a New Crop
The Geen Family Timeline
While many cannabis companies were out spending hundreds of millions on AI, greenhouses, and robotics that they thought were going to change the cannabis world, the Geen family was decades ahead of them investing in what they knew to be the most vital part of farming, site selection.
1995: Geen family acquired 2200 acres of land in Rock Creek BC. The area is known as the Golden Mile – where their family has successfully farmed for 5 generations.
2013: Geen family applied for a cannabis license; in 2016 290 acres of the Geen family farm would become SpeakEasy Cannabis Co.
2017: SpeakEasy acquired 290 acres of land in Rock Creek BC.
2018: Health Canada announces that outdoor cannabis cultivation would be allowed. SpeakEasy’s trajectory changes dramatically.
2019: Speakeasy is granted a cannabis licence for cultivation, processing, and medical sales.
2020: SpeakEasy added 2,600,000 square feet of outdoor cultivation area to its licence.
