Live Streaming Event Proudly supported by

The Sponsors of The Golden Tarp Awards 2017

This year we decided to do something different with our event. We wanted to step up our efforts to share the incredible quality of cannabis light dep growers bring to the game. We decided that we wanted to share how we judge the world’s best light dep cannabis and we were going to do it by live stream of the actual judging. Our sponsors believe in our vision and we are lucky to have them.

humboldt's finest farms


First, we’re farmers. For 20 years, we’ve farmed in the shadows of the tallest trees on Earth, at the edge of a primeval forest—the largest stand of old-growth redwoods in the world. The soil is rich, the water is pure, and the moist coastal air is a potent growth serum for living things. Why not harness the power of these natural elements to produce cannabis that’s pure, clean, and fresh?

And that’s exactly what we do at Humboldt’s Finest Farms. We farm outside, growing plants in natural light—not in captivity indoors. We started with a small plot of perfect land nestled at the edge of an ancient redwood forest. Now we tend a handful of farms right here in Humboldt County, California.
