In an industrial zone along Trent Avenue, Wesley Tuttle spends 11 hours a day planting, cloning, watering, trimming, harvesting, drying and curing marijuana at Yield Farms. His wife and co-owner Johanna comes in after her day job to manage the financials and state-required tracking process, even scanning barcodes on plants when they are moved around the farm.

After receiving their state recreational grow license in May, the Tuttles converted their medical marijuana grow business to a recreational grow. Wesley says that he wants to prove that marijuana can be a productive part of the economy: "It's more the accomplishment of Americans, that we're honest enough, hard-working enough, and that this can be done in a way that's responsible and doesn't hurt kids or society." ♦
