Amanda Metzler

Owner, Bigsby Farms

From Washington D.C. to Southern Oregon, Amanda Metzler is the owner and operator of Bigsby Farms, one of the first Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission (OLCC) licensed cannabis farms in Oregon dating back to 2015. Bigsby Farms just completed the largest solar installation on any farm in Oregon. The newly installed solar garden will offset 100% of their electrical usage. In addition to farming, Metzler is the founder of Farms Inc. - Oregon’s Cannabis Farm Advocates. She was recently appointed by the Governor to Oregon’s Cannabis Task Force. Locally, she chairs the Josephine County Cannabis Advisory Panel. Finally, she is a member of the Rules Advisory Committee for OLCC, Oregon Department of Agriculture, and Oregon Health Authority, allowing the small independent farmer a voice at every table.
