A Message From Our Founder Chip Baker

I was ten years old, making wedding mints for my mother’s catering business. Growing up on a farm in rural Georgia and trying to make my way in the world, I moved onto cutting grass, raking leaves, and selling fire crackers and newspapers. As I gained experience in how businesses work, my entrepreneurial ideas grew.

In 1997, I moved to Northern California and became an early pioneer of an emerging cultivation industry. Coming from an agrarian background, I had an innate horticultural knowledge and fostered my ideas about developing ancillary businesses to support the new booming industry. In 2002, I began importing coco fiber from Asia as an agricultural supplement to potting soil. In 2006, after I developed a complete line of soils I founded Royal Gold Soil.

Ten years and 25 million tons of coco fiber later, I sold Royal Gold Soil and started Cultivate Colorado, the largest indoor horticultural supplier in the galaxy with two stores in the Denver Metropolitan Area.

I am currently developing a new potting soil and fertilizer company in Colorado and recording Season Two of The Real Dirt podcast, which is quickly becoming a leading podcast in the cultivation industry. When I’m not smoking or trafficking coco pith, I spend my time consulting for First Capital Ventures, Bickel Consulting, Denver Consulting Group, government agencies, growers and independent business people in the cultivation industry.
