Document Description
Ancient Lake Farms (ALF) is requesting a total of 43,560 sq. ft. of commercial outdoor cannabis canopy area with a total of 49,160 sq. ft. of cultivation area located at 23095 Jerusalem Grade Road, Middletown, CA in Lake County (APN 013-015-44). The individual parcels involved in this project will be merged into a single parcel to meet county ordinance which requires minimum acreage size to apply for the proposed license type to cultivate. The proposed cultivation method is via an above grade organic soil mixture in hardware cloth planting beds with drip irrigation systems. The proposed ancillary facilities include (3) 200 ft2 storage sheds, (4) 2,500 gallon water tanks and a 5,000 ft2 processing facility enclosed by a 6-foot tall chain link fence with privacy mesh coverings. The second phase of construction will be implemented when all building codes and regulations are satisfied, including satisfying the requirement for the State Responsibility Area Fire Safe Regulations. Agricultural chemicals associated with cannabis cultivation (fertilizers, pesticides, and petroleum products) will be stored within the secured proposed 200 sq. ft. storage area until the processing facility is built in the future. The proposed processing building will contain cannabis processing activities such as drying, trimming, curing, and packaging.
