About Us-Hempful Farms

About Us –

Hempful Farms is a family owned and operated Hemp manufacturer, distributor and retailer. In 2012 Zonka Bars, an Arizona local Cannabis Brand was founded by Chris and Andi Martin. Chris, a chef and Andi, a nurse, launched a chocolate and candy line for patients infused with Cannabis. Therefore, Arizona had passed MMJ in 2010 without a dispensary opening until 2013. So the young entrepreneurs filled that void.

Sept 12, 2012 The Martins were raided by multiple jurisdictions and charged with 27 felonies resulting in potentially 125+ years for “narcotics.”During their fight, The Martins converted all of the SKUS to HEMP in hopes of keeping their customer base and to be able to still pay bills. Essentially launching Hempful Farms and Retail Store. Furthermore, this was also Arizona’s first Hemp Cafe and Retail store.

Two years after opening, Chris was sentenced to 2 years in prison for a registered weapon. During his stay he founded Zonka Miles Non Profit helping families of incarcerated for cannabis.

2017 Chris returns home to his family and hit the ground running, reopening at 1756 w Bell rd. They currently reopened their Cafe via food trailer in Sept 2023 in a new location and will be launching new locations coming soon.
