Located in one of Canada’s most arable regions, we also have the sun on our side being in the southernmost region of the nation – Southwestern Ontario.

The initial 80-acre property is easily capable of being scaled up for future expansions to a neighboring 300 acres.
Born and raised on a farm near the intended grow operation, the Guttridge brothers have sourced local property, equipment and human resources for field operations and business management, ensuring that a tie to the community always remains a core value of 7 Farms Down. The brothers are dedicated to providing long-term employment opportunities to the people of Chatham-Kent and contributing to the strong agricultural history of the municipality.
Why 7 farms down?
When we first started building this business, Health Canada required that any property used for the cultivation of cannabis had to be accessible by a paved road. Since the original farm we grew up in was on a dirt road, this was unfortunately not an option.
The rules have since changed to allow cultivation facilities to be accessible on a dirt road, but we are sticking with the new farm location because of the logistical advantages that a paved road gives us. We have easier transportation, more access to water, and less property maintenance.
And on top of that, we always know that home is only 7 Farms Down.
