1. Green Mountain Harvest

"We at Green Mountain Harvest understand the frustrations of maintaining a professional, reliable harvesting staff. Headaches such as interviewing, hiring, firing, training, turnover, unemployment, scheduling, workman's comp, and taxes all seem to weigh you down when you're trying to be compliant in the Medical Marijuana industry. On top of that, trimming can be a labor-intensive task, especially when deadlines are around the corner and you have a large or small amount to weigh and process.

But hiring extra people for trimming can be real difficult if you don't already have the staff. And if you do hire people for the job, what do you do with the trimmers when the job is over and you’re waiting for the next harvest?"
