Cannabis cultivator Autumn Brands welcomes new partner

Hanna Brand adds balance to male-dominated industry

SANTA BARBARA, CA – (May 2019). Cannabis cultivator Autumn Brands is excited to welcome Hanna Brand to the company’s Owner/Sales position, recently announced Autumn Shelton, CFO of the 50 percent woman-owned, family-run, and pesticide-free cannabis farm along Santa Barbara County’s sunny coastline. Hanna is responsible for increasing revenue and maintaining the farm’s pure growing practices that began in Holland more than 100 years ago. 

She serves as the face of Autumn Days, a hybrid of a customer appreciation and education event that is typically held at a dispensary, where she shares her vast knowledge on the specifics of cannabis and general agriculture. On the farm, Hanna oversees the team responsible for harvesting and packaging, and she manages the branding and the post-harvest bulk of privately held and entirely self-funded Autumn Brands.

Hanna is a sixth-generation farmer and a recent graduate with a degree in Agricultural and Environmental Plant Sciences with a concentration in Environmental Horticultural Science from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, giving her a rare combination of old-world craftsmanship and tech savviness coupled with a millennial’s approach to holistic wellness.

“Cannabis was a weed growing wild. Now it’s so hybridized and developed into a designer product … I have the passion for the plant and the science. I’m in for the long haul,” said Hanna, whose roll-up-your-sleeves work ethic and fearlessness are additional assets in the male dominated field. “My priority is putting out a quality product at a fair price and evolving with the industry.” 

Born and raised in Carpinteria in Santa Barbara County, Hanna is a member of the local Sunset Rotary Club and counts wakeboarding, skiing, soccer, and beach volleyball among her favorite off-duty activities. Hanna also possesses an unusual skill in the United States – speaking Dutch.
