Brian Malin - Founder



Brian Malin is the founder and CEO of Vital Garden Supply, and the co-founder of Vital Grown. His mission is to pioneer the importance of organically grown cannabis for consumers and growers worldwide.

For over 25 years, Brian has built knowledge around organic farming and soil biology. His lifelong dream, however, has always been to use his expertise in all natural gardening to help cannabis grow teams reach the next level.

Brain has been involved in the cannabis scene for many years, from guest-starring on the Hash Church podcast to judging cannabis competitions, including the Emerald Cup, the All Hawaiian Invitational, and the Ego Clash. In February 2019, he officially partnered with his brother-in-law, Mateo Meadowcraft, to form the Vital Grown cannabis brand.

co-founder Mateo Meadowcroft

Mateo was born and raised in Lima, Peru, but moved to the United States as a young adult to pursue a career in the cannabis industry. Deep ancestral roots drew him to the Mendocino area (his great-great-great grandfather founded Mendocino in 1850) and Mateo established Blue Lake Farm in the Emerald Triangle in 2015.

Blue Lake Farm is no stranger to Vital Garden products. Mateo has been using Vital Garden products to grow his all natural high-quality cannabis from the beginning. In 2019, Mateo’s licensed cannabis farm officially became Vital Grown Farm when Mateo joined forces with Brian, his brother-in-law.

The Vital Grown Story

For years, Vital Grown founders Brian Malin and Mateo Meadowcraft cultivated their knowledge of organic farming and growing all-natural cannabis. Brian founded Vital Garden Supply and created the formula for the Vital Garden Products line. Mateo established a licensed farm in Mendocino and put his lifelong passion for cultivating cannabis to work.

In 2019, Brian and Mateo teamed up to form Vital Grown, a new line of naturally-grown, premium cannabis products grown with traditional farming practices. Mateo’s farm brings a history of authentic California, sun-grown farming culture, while Brian’s Vital Garden Supply products introduce healthy, all-natural, balanced soils and fertilizers.

The Vital Grown Farm is proud to use sustainable farming practices while steering clear of ever using chemical pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. Instead, there is a focus on organic inputs, soil biology, and quality genetics. Each cannabis plant is grown outdoors in full sunlight and hand-harvested when the time is right. Through a time-perfected curing process, all Vital Grown products also come with superior terpene profiles.
