Who is 253 Farmacy?
253 Farmacy is all about good old-fashioned natural quality.
Members of our team grew up working the fertile soils of the Pioneer Valley and know first hand the pride and satisfaction that comes from enjoying a freshly-picked food that you nurtured and harvested with your own bare hands.
That's why we've opened the first vertically-integrated dispensary in Massachusetts. This means we grow, process, and serve the highest-quality cannabis products all on-site at our Montague store.
We can't wait for you to visit so we can show you what we've been up to! We converted the old Hallmark Photography building outside Turner Falls into a novel facility designed to provide you with the most access possible. You can see the nursery where your plants grow, and get to know the people taking care of them. And we want get to know how cannabis can best complement you: whether you seek relaxation, euphoria, balance, or all of the above depending on the day of the week.
Why do we call ourselves "253 Farmacy"?
It's a long, dramatic story full of unexpected twists...
Okay, it's actually not. 253 is our address in Montague, on Millers Falls Road. 253 is where we are putting down roots. It's honestly as simple as that. We happened to "discover" that the numerals add up to 10, so we also like to say "253 is a Perfect 10"! But that's mostly to ourselves, we're actually too humble to say much of anything out loud.
Oh, and "Farmacy"? Well, you may have come across this term before, and we imagine it's been waiting all along for the opportunity to take center stage for an operation like this! It's one part "farm" and one part "pharmacy", just like our building, and also like our vision. Cannabis is destined for a return to greatness as both an agricultural marvel and a therapeutic panacea. In bringing this plant to market, we see our role as two-fold: as farmer, and as pharmacist (in the unlicensed, figurative sort of way). We are here to cultivate a magnificent plant and to help our community use it wisely (and with joy!).
