In early 2018, our founders saw an opportunity to align a valuable emerging growth industry with an ethical good, a powerful brand and an ability to scale organic hemp extract–derived products and ingredients.
With a mission to serve people, the environment and the economy while reversing the hazards of climate change, we established Silver Lion Farms® as a standardized, scalable and vertically integrated organic-hemp platform.
Silver Lion Farms found a partner in American mega-entrepreneur, philanthropist and billionaire signatory of the Bill Gates Pledge John Paul DeJoria, best known as a co-founder of the Paul Mitchell® line of hair products and The Patrón Spirits Company®.
Together, we assembled a team of experts, including the strategic financial hand of CEO Bob Kurilko, to embark on our earnest journey to do good and create large returns through agriculture, science, manufacturing, job creation and environmental stewardship.
Today, we passionately maintain our mission-driven belief that every day is a meaningful opportunity to satisfy the global demand for premium hemp-derived products with intelligence, integrity, responsibility and purpose.
At Silver Lion Farms®, we care about more than what we grow – we care just as much about where and how it is grown.
Industrial Hemp Grower Focused on Location
Silver Lion Farms’ USDA Organic certified campus is nestled near the base of the Ruby Mountains. We are located in White Pine County, North of Ely, Nevada. The quaint town of Ely is roughly 7.5 square miles in the heart of the Great Basin, 244 miles north of Las Vegas and 63 miles west of Utah.
When we set out to select and establish our campus, we were determined to do things the right way no matter what it demanded of us. Today that focus expresses itself as over two thousand acres of USDA Certified Organic farmland that grows premium, quality crops serving communities near and far.
Industrial Hemp Cultivation with an Eco-Conscience
Our regenerative farming practices strongly emphasize care for the soil in helping to ensure our planet’s long-term health and vitality.
We recognize the urgent meaning of this concern in the wake of Earth’s damage from many years of heavy chemical and machinery use. In addition to creating products of high quality, our farm exists to repair and possibly reverse some of the environmental harm that has preceded us.
enhance quality of life for farm families and communities
increase production for human food and fiber needs
In achieving this, sustainable agriculture further will:
use microbial fertilizers to maintain and enhance soil fertility
use fertilizer rationally while limiting pesticides, growth hormone, plant-growth regulator and immature farm manure
apply intercropping and biological-control techniques for pests and weeds
restore the natural environment damaged by chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and other toxic agents
strictly regulate operating standards in processing agricultural items and market transactions
When sustainable agriculture practices are regionally integrated, long-term results can be:
food, feed, fiber and fuel production that corresponds with rapid population growth
protection of the environment and expansion of our natural-resource supply
continuing economic viability of agriculture systems
Forward-Looking Industrial Hemp Production
We believe hemp will increase as a versatile, powerful component of evolving human civilization. Industrial hemp can feed, clothe and house our families, friends and fellow citizens for generations to come.
Products such as our organically certified hemp seed oil and proteins offer plant-based alternatives that far exceed those available now. Fibers and hurds gathered from the stalks of the hemp plant can be used in everything from clothing to home construction through hempcrete.
As the world gains ever-greater insight into why we need sustainable products such as those derived from industrial hemp, Silver Lion Farms will continue leading the way through innovation and scalability with a nurturing eye on the soil we gather it from. ‘
We also will serve as a resource of honest and accurate education for a more-informed public that can make their own best choices and enjoy a greater quality of life.

A site to behold, our USDA Organic–certified, state-of-the-art indoor grow facility is the only one of its kind in North America. We made it that way to ensure the purest quality of hemp produced for you.
Hemp Cultivation for Ideal Manufacturing & Distribution
Set on our campus outside of Ely, Nevada, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, our 250,000 sq. ft. indoor hemp-processing facility houses nine separate 25,000 sq. ft. grow halls. Each hall is precisely controlled for light, temperature, humidity and other key factors that influence the greatest quality and yield.
Inspired by our mission of Helping Millions™, we created our facility to grow premium-quality hemp flower, herbs and other hard-to-find organics at scale year-round. This allows us to establish and maintain a reliable, scalable, transparent U.S. supply chain for consumer packaged goods.
Indoor & Outdoor Grow: What’s the Difference?
Growing hemp outdoors is advantageous because of the available land as well as the ability to cultivate the flower in the earth’s natural environment. Outdoor grow also does not have the costs associated with operating an indoor grow facility.
At the same time, because indoor grow is in a fully managed environment, it allows for much greater control of the qualities of the most desirable final hemp flower. Within our indoor facility, we can customize and adjust air, light and soil to our most exacting specifications.
Because of its controlled environment, indoor grow also can achieve multiple harvests in a year. Outdoor grow yields one condition-dependent harvest in the same span.
The Perfect Conditions Behind Uses of Hemp
Our ability to accommodate each individual hemp plant removes all effort from it in having to respond and adapt to an environment that is uncontrolled and sometimes hostile. The plant is free to reach its greatest potential.
For this reason, our indoor hemp plants are akin to what you might refer to as top-shelf spirits. This is because hemp flowers that can bloom in the perfect conditions achieve the optimal aroma, appearance and trim. They also yield denser buds with greater resin.
Collectively, these qualities ensure that your products including hemp contain characteristics of the freshest and most vibrant flower.
