In 2015, Alejandro Bergad and Jacob Goldstein founded Sunsoil (formerly Green Mountain CBD) with an unwavering commitment to bringing the most good to the most people by farming and producing high-quality CBD and prioritizing its accessibility. With a focus on organic farming, natural processing, and community involvement, Bergad and Goldstein established their first hemp farm among the rolling hills of the Northeast Kingdom in Hardwick, Vermont because of the nutrient rich soil, pure water and a population with generations of experience working the land. In 2018, Sunsoil received a $7MM investment from One Better Ventures, an investor and strategic advisor with executive management history at Burt's Bees, and Seventh Generation that fuels scalability for expansion.
