Who is
miss perry

Miss Perry’s childhood was enriched by the privilege of living on her grandparents’ farm, an experience that left a profound imprint on her. From an early age, she observed her grandparents’ commitment to their work, and witnessed the passion and care that they poured into everything they did. Working alongside her grandfather in the fields and accompanying her grandmother on her daily chores instilled a deep appreciation for her family’s traditions and built a special connection to the land that will stay with her for the rest of her life.

On December 20, 2018, a significant milestone occurred when President Trump signed the Agriculture Improvement Act, authorizing the production of hemp and removing it from the federal Controlled Substance Act (CSA). This was a pivotal moment not only for Miss Perry but for the farming industry. Supported by the public becoming increasingly educated and recognizing the benefits of CBD and other compounds derived from the cannabis plant, the demand for high-quality, natural products skyrocketed. Miss Perry was quick to recognize this trend, her deep love for farming and her emotional attachment to the land were further ignited by memories of her grandparents’ farm. Through a strong desire to continue her family’s farming legacy and embrace the changing times, Miss Perry began cultivating hemp. For her, this was not just a way to blend tradition with innovation, but also an opportunity to share products made from natural and organic components across the world. The introduction of cannabinoids to a larger audience has opened new possibilities for natural remedies and sustainable alternatives.

In 2019, Miss Perry established a thriving agricultural operation in upstate New York, focusing on cultivating premium USDA organic certified CBD and CBG hemp flower. Her unwavering commitment to excellence has solidified her position as one of the most respected pioneers in cannabis cultivation and brand development.

On March 30, 2021, the signing of the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) marked a historic moment in New York State’s history. The law legalizes cannabis for adults aged 21 and over and creates a licensing system for cultivating, processing, distributing, and selling cannabis through the Office of Cannabis Management (OCM). Miss Perry’s family-operated business holds a coveted adult-use cannabis cultivation license, making her one of the first cannabis cultivators in New York State to benefit from this new legislation.

Recognizing New York’s potential as a leading force in cannabis production and product development, Miss Perry has been committed to achieving excellence in all aspects of her business. Her emotional intelligence, combined with her dedication to motherhood and her astute business acumen, have been crucial in driving her success. As one of the few minority and women-owned cannabis cultivations in New York State, Miss Perry’s business serves as a shining example of the important role that diverse businesses can play in the future of the cannabis industry. With a focus on growth and impact, Miss Perry’s business is poised to continue its upward trajectory and contribute to the advancement of cannabis in New York State.

is devoted to sustainable farming

The family has been farming for over 100 years and plans to be farming 100 years from now. To do this, one needs to have a deep respect for the land and the products it produces. Using substances such as chemical salts, synthetic fertilizers, and in-organic pesticides is a short-term strategy that is in direct opposition to this philosophy and has no place on Miss Perry Farms. Instead, the farm uses a USDA certified organic land and cultivation process and non-GMO seeds, and is one of only a few hemp operations in the country that is fully USDA Certified.

The USDA’s official policy is that… “for hemp produced in the United States, only industrial hemp, produced in accordance with the 2014 Farm Bill, as articulated in the Statement of Principles on Industrial Hemp issued on August 12, 2016, by USDA, may be certified as organic, if produced in accordance with the USDA organic regulations.”

When choosing products, whether they are hemp-related, food, cosmetics, or homeopathic medications, default to “USDA Certified” whenever possible to ensure you are getting the best quality, produced in a sustainable manner.

5 generations of family farming

The history of the Perry Family in the United States began with Charles, Miss Perry’s Great Grandfather, an immigrant from Italy. Charles Perri immigrated to the United States in 1907 with four sons and a daughter. He established the family farm, named “Old Farmstead” in Steuben, NY

For many years Old Farmstead was a family operation that included the children and grandchildren. Miss Perry’s grandfather, Paul Perry, was the youngest son. Paul and his wife Patricia raised two sons and four daughters, who were the parents of 13 female grandchildren. Maria is the daughter of Elizabeth, Paul’s youngest daughter.

The Perry family has been farming for five generations spanning over 100 years. In addition to farming crops, they raised dairy and beef cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, and ducks. Crops they have cultivated include corn, hay, sorghum, and oats.

Maria’s grandparents Paul and Patricia built a home on a piece of the property near the Old Farmstead in the late 1950s. Paul built a large barn, raised pigs, and cultivated several acres of crops including corn, pumpkins, and hay. You can see the original barn in the Miss Perry Farms logo.

Maria has become the latest Perry family member to return to her roots and begin farming.When hemp became a viable crop due to its use in CBD products in addition to its industrial applications, Maria became interested and dove headfirst into some intense research. Based on her findings and other factors favoring hemp production in the state of New York, to bring a part of the old land back to life, Maria began cultivating hemp. She harvested her first crop in 2019. Maria has plans to expand the farm and increase production in the upcoming years.
