Contra Costa Farms LLC (aka CoCo Farms) opened a new dispensary in Antioch, CA – one of the first recreational cannabis dispensaries to open in that city. The licensed cannabis facility is owned and operated by the same management team as its sister company Rio Vista Farms. Rio Vista Farms has become a pillar of the community, providing over 100 jobs to adults in the area.
The facility in Rio Vista has been able to support the community and the owners hope to continue that in Antioch. Before December of 2019, there was not a licensed dispensary in the area. CoCo Farms hopes to set a standard for cannabis businesses coming into the city by providing a safe and welcoming environment for consumers and the neighborhood.
Located in the heart of Contra Costa County, CoCo Farms is permitted to sell cannabis to anyone age 21 and older with a government-issued ID card. The dispensary will be open 7 days a week from 8 a.m to 8 p.m. They will have a full menu of cannabis products including indoor, greenhouse, and sun-grown cannabis flowers, concentrates, vape cartridges, edibles, tinctures, and more. Since Rio Vista Farms and CoCo Farms are owned by the same company, consumers will accrue loyalty points with purchases that can be redeemed at either location.
In addition to providing jobs, tax dollars, and quality cannabis products, CoCo Farms has developed a social equity program for children of Antioch residents who have been incarcerated. This philanthropic effort aims to provide resources to support these children’s needs which may not be provided by existing city, county and state services.
The final project will include a large cultivation complex containing about 130,000 square feet of canopy, distribution, manufacturing as well as a retail storefront with delivery. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2021. You can find more information about CoCo Farms on their website www.enjoycocofarms.com.
