The reina of hemp herself Sue Carlton known as “Ranchera Mami” is the first Latina in the U.S. to create hemp genetics and own an award-winning cannabis and hemp farm called Ranchera Familia in the Sierra Mountains of Fresno County. She provides educational seminars and retreats for young aspiring “ranchera mamis”.

Boldlatina interviewed and spotlighted Carlton back in 2021 then she was under Sue Surabian where she said she wanted better representations for Latina business owners and Latina farmers employment and training.

“Which is why we are and have been continuously saving to build our dream educational retreat center directly on our ranch. Our hopes to be able to provide young women of color a place to learn, in a healthy positive environment inclusive of farming hemp & building a regenerative relationship between us, our land and animals,” Carlton told Boldlatina about being avid Latinas in cannabis community builder.
