Budtender – Portland 

John is a Manager for the Atlantic Farms Retail Store and loves a nice sativa strain. When he’s not at work John practices Jiu-Jitsu and loves an ice-cold glass of high quality H2O. John’s favorite thing about managing at AF is hearing about how cannabis is helping our customers every day, while simultaneously working with our beautiful flower. He absolutely loves the warmth of the summer in Maine, and if there are waves you better believe he’s in the water catching them.

Sarah is a Budtender here at Atlantic Farms and loves creating a fun and welcoming environment at work. Originally from San Antonio Texas, she now lives in Gorham where she loves to work on her garden. Her favorite part about Maine is the people (but mostly Susan’s Fish & Chips), and experiencing the beauty that autumn has to offer. On her days off you can find her working on her photography or hanging with her husband and their two cats, Dolly and Maggie.

Home Office Team

Cat is an Marketing Coordinator for the Atlantic Farms Retail Store and is a self- proclaimed “Indica Gal” who loves roaming around the Maine woods in the middle of autumn. She is the mother of two cats who sometimes acts like they love her back, and spends her time trying to keep her plants alive. Cat’s favorite thing about working at AF is making sure everyone has a positive experience while in the store, whether it be customers or fellow employees. When she’s not at work, you can find her lounging on the beach with a cold beer or watching a horror movie, sometimes simultaneously.

Jackson – CEO

Jackson received a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maine at Orono. A professional background as a mechanical design engineer developing industrial automation provided the opportunity to learn the skills required to bring projects from concept to completion. This experience also exposed Mr. McLeod to the world of Lean Manufacturing, minimizing waste of any manufacturing process without affecting productivity. In addition to Mr. McLeod’s engineering experience, he co-founded Fluid Farms, an organic produce company focused on greenhouse production. This experience developed the skill sets needed to upstart a small-scale produce company and successfully manage greenhouse production while maintaining food safety as the number one priority. In the process of building Fluid Farms Mr. McLeod raised nine thousand dollars through a Kickstarter project and one hundred-thousand dollars in several equity deals. The experience gained over 6 six years of growing and running an agriculture business is invaluable. Lastly, Mr McLeod has been a registered caregiver under Maine’s Medical Marijuana program since 2011. This experience exposed Mr. McLeod to the horticultural skill sets needed to successfully manage indoor, outdoor and greenhouse cannabis production. Additionally Mr. McLeod constructed and operated light-deprivation greenhouses for the 2017 grow season, doubling seasonal production and his horticulture knowledge base.
